Viking orders three more ocean ships

Viking Ocean Cruises has ordered three more ocean ships.

The additions, which will be built at the Fincantieri shipyard, will take Viking’s fleet to six vessels by 2020.

The new ships were announced at the float-out ceremony of Viking Sky (pictured), which launches early next year, and will come following the launch of Viking Star and Viking Sea. All of the ships carry 930-passengers.

The next three ships, which are yet to be named, will be delivered in late 2017, 2018 and 2020.

Viking Cruises’ founder and chairman, Torstein Hagen, said: “It is a special day when a new ship meets water for the first time. This is our third ship to be floated out in three years, so it is indeed a proud moment for our entire Viking family.”
