Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri delivered the cruise ship Viking Jupiter to cruise line Viking from its Ancona shipyard on February 7.

Viking Jupiter, which can accommodate 930 passengers, is the sixth of overall 16 units Fincantieri is set to deliver to Viking.

With a gross tonnage of about 47,800 tons, the vessel is a part of the small cruise ship segment. The keel-laying ceremony for the ship was held in October 2017.

The first of the series, Viking Star, was built at the shipyard in Marghera and delivered in 2015. The other units, Viking Sea, Viking Sky, Viking Sun, and Viking Orion, handed over in 2016, 2017 and 2018, were all built at the Ancona yard.

Other 10 units, options included, for Viking Cruises will take to the sea from the group’s Italian yards between 2021 and 2027.

Working with Vard, Fincantieri is also entering the expedition vessels segment and has acquired an order from Viking for two special cruise ships which will be built in the group’s yards, the company said.
