    Second New Viking Ocean Ship Floats Out from Dock

    The Viking Sea, the second of three ships which Fincantieri is currently building for Viking Ocean Cruises, was launched today at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona.

    Interior fittings will now begin, leading the ship to its delivery scheduled in spring 2016.

    The Viking Star, the first sister ship, was delivered in March, and Fincantieri is already working on the Viking Sky, the third ship, that will be delivered in early 2017.

    A prepared statement did not mention the fourth ship previously ordered.

    The ceremony was attended by Karine Hagen, godmother for the launch and daughter of Torstein Hagen, founder and CEO of Viking Cruises, while Fincantieri was represented by Giovanni Stecconi, Director of the shipyard in Ancona.
