MV Viking Sky is a cruise ship that was launched in 2016 and entered service in 2017. She is operated by Viking Ocean Cruises.

General characteristics

Viking Sky is 228.2 metres (748 ft 8 in) long overall, has a moulded beam of 28.8 metres (94 ft 6 in) and draws 6.45 metres (21 ft 2 in) of water at design draught. Her gross tonnage is 47,842, net tonnage 18,858, and deadweight tonnage 4,826 tons. The ship's hull is strengthened for navigation in ice with Finnish-Swedish ice class 1C.

Viking Sky has 465 cabins for passengers, all outside with balconies. Amenities include two pools, a spa, a fitness center, two restaurants, several lounges and bars, a sports deck, a theatre, and various shops.

Like most modern cruise ships, Viking Sky has a diesel-electric propulsion system where an integrated power plant provides electricity for all onboard consumers ranging from the vessel's twin propellers to hotel functions such as lighting, air conditioning and electrical sockets in the passenger cabins. Her two interconnected but physically separated high-voltage switchboards are supplied by four alternators driven by MAN 32/44CR series medium-speed diesel engines. In accordance with the Safe Return to Port requirements for passenger ships, the power plant is split to two engine rooms separated by watertight and fireproof bulkheads. Each engine room houses one 9-cylinder 9L32/44CR engine rated at 5,040 kW (6,760 hp) and one 12-cylinder 12V32/44CR engine producing 6,720 kW (9,010 hp) each, a so-called "father and son" configuration. In addition, Viking Sky has a single 1,390 kW (1,860 hp) Isotta Fraschini V1712T3 emergency diesel generator.

For propulsion, electricity from the main switchboards is fed through propulsion transformers and pulse-width modulated variable-frequency drives to two 7,250-kilowatt (9,720 hp) asynchronous electric motors, each driving a six-bladed fixed-pitch propellers with a diameter of 4.5 metres (15 ft). This propulsion system gives Viking Sky a service speed of 17 knots (31 km/h; 20 mph) and maximum speed of 20 knots (37 km/h; 23 mph). The ship's twin rudders feature Rolls-Royce's Promas system with streamlined propeller hubcaps and rudders that improve hydrodynamic performance. In addition, she has two 2,800 kW (3,800 hp) bow thrusters and a single 1,400 kW (1,900 hp) stern thruster for manoeuvering in ports.

Construction

Viking Sky is one of a series of cruise ships built by Fincantieri in Ancona, Italy, for Viking Ocean Cruises. As of 2019, she has five sister ships in operation (Viking Star, Viking Sea, Viking Sun, Viking Orion and Viking Jupiter), one under construction (Viking Venus), five on order (Viking Tellus and four yet unnamed vessels) and four more planned with deliveries spanning to 2027. Viking Sky was laid down on 20 December 2013, launched on 23 March 2016, and delivered on 26 January 2017. The ship was originally planned to set sail in 2016 as Viking Sea, but delivery was delayed until 2017. She was christened in June 2017 at Tromsø. Her port of registry is Bergen.
