Viking Ocean Cruises today celebrated the maiden voyage of its third ship, Viking Sky, from Rome’s Civitavecchia port to Barcelona.
Sister ship to the Viking Star and Viking Sea, Viking Sky will begin her maiden season sailing itineraries throughout the Western and Eastern Mediterranean before heading north to sail Scandinavian and Baltic itineraries in the summer. Viking Sky will cross the Atlantic this fall and will finish out the year sailing itineraries in the Americas and the Caribbean.
The Viking Sky boasts a gross tonnage of 47,800 tons, boasts 465 cabins and accommodates 930 passengers. Viking’s fourth ship, Viking Sun, will be delivered in November and will spend her maiden season sailing the company’s first-ever World Cruise. Viking Spirit will join the fleet in 2018 and will sail itineraries in Australia, Asia and Alaska. A sixth, yet-to-be-named ship will be delivered in 2019.
