By 6 September 20182018 Newsletter week 36

Viking Line celebrated the start of the construction work of its new ferry at the Chinese shipyard Xiamen Shipbuilding Industries Co, Ltd. On 3 September a traditional steel cutting ceremony was held.

She will start to operate on the Turku-Mariehamn-Stockholm route in early 2021.

The new cruise ferry is bigger than the STX Finland built VIKING GRACE, the world’s first major LNG-powered passenger ship, but is expected to consume 10% less fuel.
