New Viking Ship Floated Out at Fincantieri

Viking Vela at Fincantieri

The Viking Vela was floated out at Fincantieri as the vessel now moves to its final outfitting ahead of a late 2024 delivery.

“The unit will be placed in the small cruise ship segment. She will have a gross tonnage of about 54,300 tons, will be equipped with 499 cabins and will be able to accommodate 998 passengers onboard,” Fincantieri said in a statement.

She will become the 10th sister ship in the Viking fleet and the 11th built in this series, as one operates in China under Viking’s joint venture with China Merchants.
