Viking marks float out of newest ocean ship

CruiseViking announced its newest ocean ship-the 998-guest VIKING VELA-was floated out, marking a major construction milestone and the first time the ship has touched water. Scheduled to debut in December 2024, the VIKING VELA will spend her inaugural season sailing voyages in the Mediterranean and in Northern Europe.

"Together with Fincantieri, we have built the world's most elegant ocean vessels, and it is always a proud day when our newest ship meets water for the first time," said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking. "Our small, elegant ocean ships are ranked #1 by both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler. We are different than other lines because of all that we do, but Viking also stands apart for all that we do not do. No children. No casinos. No nickel and diming. We look forward to welcoming the VIKING VELA to our award-winning fleet next year and introducing even more curious travelers to the Viking way of exploration."

The VIKING VELA

Classified as a small ship, the VIKING VELA has a gross tonnage of 54,300, with 499 staterooms that can host 998 guests. She will join the award-winning ocean fleet of sister ships, which includes the VIKING STAR, VIKING SEA, VIKING SKY, VIKING ORION, VIKING JUPITER, VIKING VENUS, VIKING MARS, VIKING NEPTUNE and the VIKING SATURN.
