Viking enters agreement for six additional ocean ships

Viking has announced a new agreement with Fincantieri that could see the delivery of six additional ocean ships by 2027.

The new understanding will raise the company’s total ocean ship order and options to 16 – the highest-ever for a shipyard from a single owner. The agreement for the six additional ships, which will be delivered in 2024, 2025, 2026 and 2027, is subject to specific conditions.

Torstein Hagen, chairman of the cruise line, said: “When we launched our first ocean ship in 2015, we set out to reinvent ocean cruising. Our understated, elegant, award-winning ships are designed to simply enable our guests to better explore their destination and this new order speaks to the positive response we have received from our guests and the industry. As we continue to expand our brand, we look forward to bringing guests to more destinations around the world and introducing them to the Viking way of exploration.”

The company will be welcoming two more sister ships in the next two years; Viking Orion this June and with the arrival of Viking Jupiter in 2019, it will be the largest small ship ocean cruise line. Ten additional ships are now on order for delivery starting in 2021, which will bring the line’s ocean fleet to 16 ships by 2027.
