Steel Cut for Viking Sea

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has held the steel-cutting ceremony for Viking Sea at its Marghera shipyard. Viking Sea is the second ship in order of acquisition that Fincantieri is building for Viking Ocean Cruises.


Fincantieri is also building Viking Star, with delivery scheduled in Marghera in spring 2015, and Viking Sky, which will be delivered in Ancona in summer 2016.

Like its two sister ships, Viking Sea will weigh approximately 47,800gt and will have 465 staterooms, accommodating 930 guests. Also like its sister ships, the ship was designed by nautical architects and engineers, including London-based SMC Design and Los Angeles-based Rottet Studios.

Maiden voyage itineraries for Viking Ocean Cruises start in April 2015, with cruising in Scandinavia and the Baltic; and the Western and Eastern Mediterranean.

Guests on Viking’s ships will experience cruising with destination as the focus, maximum time in port and an onboard cultural enrichment program ideal for an experienced traveler with interests in history, art and culture.

In over a year ago Viking announced its plans to expand into the ocean cruise segment, marking the travel industry’s first new ocean cruise line in nearly a decade.
