Viking agrees deal for two more ocean ships

Viking Cruises

Viking Cruises has agreed a deal with the Italian shipyard Fincantieri for two further ocean ships, due to be delivered in 2024 and 2025.

The ships will be 47,800 tons with accommodation for 930 passengers in 465 cabins. The deal is on top of the six ships that Viking ordered in March 2018 and the two expedition ships it ordered in July 2018.

Fincantieri signed a deal with Viking in 2012 – which now stands at 20 vessels, a record for the number of ships being built by a shipbuilder for one shipowner.

Viking Star was the first ship to be delivered, in 2015. This was followed by the Sea, Sky, Sun, Orion and Jupiter.

The line has an option for ships up until 2027, including the before mentioned construction of two expedition-class ships.
