“Viking Saturn”, the newest ocean cruise ship which Fincantieri is building for the shipowner Viking, has been delivered at the shipyard in Ancona.
The unit will be placed in the small cruise ship segment. As its sister ships, she is about 47,800 tons, 465 cabins with accommodation for 930 passengers.
“Viking Saturn”, tenth of this class, has been designed by experienced naval architects and engineers, including an interior design team of Los Angeles-based Rottet Studios and London-based SMC Design, who gave the ship a modern design of Scandinavian inspiration, characterised by sophisticated yet functional elegance. In addition to the all-veranda staterooms, the ship also has spacious suites with sweeping views, two pools, of which one infinity pool off the stern, abundant options for al fresco dining, and a spa designed according to the wellness philosophy of the Scandinavian tradition, with a sauna and a snow grotto.
The Viking units are all built according to the latest navigation regulations, are equipped with the most modern safety systems, including the “safe return to port”, and are certified from Lloyd’s Register from the very first ship delivered in 2015. The ships also feature energy-efficient engines, optimized hydrodynamics and hull thereby reducing consumption, as well as systems which minimize pollution produced by exhaust gases, meeting the strictest environmental regulations.
