The latest additional to Viking Ocean Cruises fleet of luxury cruise ships, Viking Sky, which joined the fleet in March 2017, was officially christened in Tromso, Norway on 22 June 2017.
The vessel is the third cruise ship launched by Viking Ocean Cruises in the last three years. The cruise line has another five cruise ships under construction or on order.
Viking Ocean Cruises and Fincantieri have signed a memorandum of agreement for the construction of two new cruise ships, with the option for an additional two.
The new build cruise ships will be similar to the six cruise ships which Viking Ocean Cruises have already ordered. The first of the six ships entered service in 2015, whilst the fourth, fifth and sixth are still yet to be launched.
Viking Ocean Cruises has taken delivery of its latest new build cruise ship, Viking Sky at a delivery ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy.
Viking Sky is the third new build cruise ship to be delivered to Viking Ocean Cruises, joining Viking Star, which launched in 2015 and Viking Sea, which launched in 2016.
