PORTHOLE

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

A YEL­LOW labrador by the name of Finse was hon­oured by Vik­ing Cruises re­cently when a coin which rep­re­sented the pooch’s year of birth was welded un­der the mast of Vik­ing Orion dur­ing the ship’s float out event.

Finse is no stranger to the world of celebrity events, hav­ing al­ready starred in her own book se­ries called The World of Finse, writ­ten by her owner Karine Ha­gen, who is also the daugh­ter of the com­pany’s founder Torstein Ha­gen.

The com­pany is yet to con­firm whether or not Finse will take on a se­nior po­si­tion within the ship’s crew, but their si­lence makes one sus­pect the cap­tain may have a new first mate AND best friend.
