Viking Cruises Chairman Torstein Hagen outlined several policies that will be implemented by Viking's new ocean-going cruise line in its bid to differentiate itself in the market. Viking Ocean Cruises will not charge noncommissionable fees, Hagen said, in keeping with Viking's policy on its river-cruise line. "We don't nickel and dime customers, and we shouldn't nickel and dime travel agents either," Hagen said. Viking Ocean Cruises also will not have formal nights, restaurant surcharges or a casino, Hagen said.
