The second new slightly larger ship in Viking's long-running ocean series will be called Viking Vesta.

Scheduled for summer 2025 delivery from Fincantieri, it mirrors this year's Viking Vela, the first of the vessels with larger dimensions due to new IMO stability regulations.

12th ocean ship

Viking Vesta, 12th ship in the ocean series launched in 2015, will stretch 784 feet with a beam of 101 feet and capacity for 998 passengers, with gross tonnage of approximately 54,300.

It is scheduled to debut in the Mediterranean.
