Fincantieri is also building Viking Star, with delivery scheduled in Marghera in spring 2015, and Viking Sky, due to be handed over by the Ancona yard in summer 2016.
Each 47,800gt sister ship has 465 staterooms, accommodating 930 passengers. The interior architects are London-based SMC Design and Los Angeles-based Rottet Studios.
Viking Star's inaugural activities are to begin in April. After the ship's naming in Bergen on May 17, it will operate in Scandinavia and the Baltic, and the western and eastern Mediterranean.
