U.S.-based cruise liner Viking Ocean Cruises has brought its ordering tally at Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri to ten.

Namely, the company confirmed the orders for the seventh and eighth Vikings that were ordered in April and exercised options for the two remaining ships.

The final contracts were dependent on the fulfillment of financing and other customary closing conditions.

The new units will be sister ships of the ones already ordered, four of which have been delivered and plying the world’s oceans.

The ships have a gross tonnage of 47,800 tons and accommodate 930 guests in 465 all-veranda cabins. According to Fincantieri, the ships will be built according to the latest navigation regulations and equipped with the modern safety systems, including the “Safe return to port” system.

The first of the series, Viking Star, built at the shipyard in Marghera, took to sea in March 2015; the second, the third, and the fourth, Viking Sea, Viking Sky and Viking Sun, built at the shipyard in Ancona, were delivered respectively in March 2016, January and September 2017.

The other six sister ships, including those related to the exercised option, are planned to be delivered in 2018, 2019, 2021, two in 2022 and 2023 respectively.
