Viking Ocean Cruises celebrates float out of third ship
LOS ANGELES – Viking Ocean Cruises announced its third ship – the 930-passenger Viking Sky – was “floated out,” marking a major construction milestone and the first time that the new ship touches water. The traditional ceremony took place yesterday at Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard, just one day before the company takes delivery of its second ship, Viking Sea, which will officially debut to guests next month.
