Fincantieri Delivers Fourth Viking

Viking Sun, the fourth of eight cruise ships Viking Ocean Cruises has ordered from Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, was delivered to the company on September 25 at the Ancona shipyard.

Like its sister ships, Viking Sun is placed in the small cruise ship segment. With a gross tonnage of about 47,800 tons, it has 465 cabins with accommodation for 930 passengers, with a total capacity of over 1,400 people, including the crew.

Fincantieri informed that the Viking Ocean Cruises units “are all built according to the latest navigation regulations and equipped with the most modern safety systems, including the ‘Safe return to port’.”

Additionally, they feature the most advanced technologies for energy saving and for meeting the strictest environmental regulations with energy-efficient engines and an exhaust gas cleaning system.

The first of the series, Viking Star, was built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Marghera and delivered in 2015, the second and the third, Viking Sea and Viking Sky, took the sea from the shipyard in Ancona in 2016 and 2017.

Viking Ocean Cruises is scheduled to take delivery of the last four units in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022, respectively.
