Shower glass reinstalled on Viking Star after shattering incidents

Viking Cruises said it has re-installed the shower glass in virtually all of the cabins on its Viking Star ship because several shower panels have shattered unexpectedly at sea.

A spokesman for Viking said the incidents were isolated and were related to the installation process of the glass.

A Viking passenger posted an account on the Cruise Critic message board about how she was injured when the shower glass exploded in her cabin.

The 920-passenger Viking Star is the company’s first ocean ship. It debuted in April and has been sailing on European itineraries.

The spokesman said the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy where Viking Star was built has “taken care of the situation” by re-installing almost all of the shower glass.

“The safety of our guests and staff is always our top priority and we regret that some of our guests experienced this situation,” the spokesman said.
