Twin Cruise Ship Contract for Fincantieri

Press Release
Thursday, July 12, 2012

Viking Ocean Cruises & Fincantieri sign contract for the construction of two luxury cruise ships

At 47,000 gross tonnes with 472 cabins for a total passenger capacity of 944,  the two vessels are destined to serve the market for smaller super-luxury ships. Delivery is scheduled for early 2015 and early 2016.

A crucial factor in Fincantieri’s successful bid was Export Banca, the system set up by SACE, Cassa depositi e prestiti and Simest to support Italian exports which enabled Fincantieri to offer the shipowner an attractive technical, commercial and financial package.

Fincantieri says that the signing of this important agreement is proof that the Italian system is competitive and able to offer effective solutions for the export of capital goods, even in today’s turbulent financial markets.

Fincantieri and Viking are discussing further high profile joint projects, not only in the ocean cruise segment but also in the river cruise segment, in which Viking River Cruises is a leader.
