Viking Ocean Cruises has taken delivery of its fourth ship, the luxury small-ship brand announced this week.
The new Viking Sky is sister ship to the company’s existing Viking Star and Viking Sea.
The ship will set sail from Rome before heading later this year to the Americas and the Caribbean.
“In the past two years, we have been encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response our first two ocean ships have generated among our guests and travel industry partners. Today we mark an important milestone in welcoming the third ship to our fleet. By the end of 2017 – our 20th year in business – we will also welcome our fourth ship, doubling our fleet in less than a year,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises. “With our fast-growing fleet and innovative design, we look forward to introducing even more experienced travelers to The Viking Way of destination-focused itineraries in the years to come.”
The ship will include 465 staterooms and accommodate up to 930 guests.
In November, Viking plans to add another new ship, Viking Sun, which will spend her maiden season sailing the brand’s first-ever World Cruise.
