World’s Newest Cruise Ship Joins Viking’s Fleet

Viking took delivery of their newest ocean cruise ship, Viking Jupiter, earlier this week. Viking Jupiter is the sixth cruise ship added to Viking’s fleet since the cruise line debuted in May 2015.

The delivery ceremony took place on Thursday when the cruise ship was presented to the cruise line at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy.

On February 16, Viking Jupiter will be the first in Viking’s fleet to sail the Journey to Antiquities itinerary, a new itinerary sailing between Athens and Rome offering guests the chance to experience the Mediterranean during the quiet season. During its maiden season, Viking Jupiter will sail itineraries throughout the Mediterranean and then Scandinavia. The ship will officially be named in Oslo, Norway on June 6 by her ceremonial godmother, Sissel Kyrkjebø, the acclaimed Norwegian soprano.

Viking’s ocean ships have a gross tonnage of 47,800 tons, with 465 balcony staterooms that can host 930 guests. Viking Jupiter is part of Viking’s award-winning ocean fleet of sister ships, which also includes Viking Star, Viking Se, Viking Sky, Viking Sun, and Viking Orion.

Guests also enjoy many complimentary amenities as part of their fare, including: beer and wine with lunch and dinner service; alternative restaurant dining; free Wi-Fi; self-service laundry; access to the Thermal Suite in the LivNordic Spa; and 24-hour room service.
