Viking Saturn is scheduled to debut in April 2023

Viking has celebrated the float out of its newest ocean ship, Viking Saturn, at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Ancona, Italy.

The traditional ceremony began when the Viking team cut a cord that signalled for water to be allowed to flow into the ship’s building dock. Following a two-day process, Viking Saturn will be moved to a nearby outfitting dock for final construction and interior build-out.

“It is always a proud day when a new Viking ship meets water for the first time and moves one step closer to joining her sister ships in our fleet,” said Torstein Hagen, chairman of Viking. “Together with Fincantieri, we have built the world’s most elegant ocean vessels—and we look forward to welcoming our first guests on board the Viking Saturn when she is delivered next spring.”

Viking Saturn is scheduled to debut in April 2023 and will spend its maiden season sailing itineraries in the Mediterranean and in Northern Europe.
