The Viking Sun, the fourth of eight cruise ships Viking Ocean Cruises has ordered from Fincantieri, was delivered at the company's shipyard in Ancona on Monday.

The new Viking Ocean Cruises ships feature fuel-efficient engines and an exhaust gas cleaning system, or scrubber, to meet strict environmental regulations.

The last four units are due to be delivered in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022.

Fincantieri has built 79 cruise ships since 1990, whilst another 32 are currently being designed or built.
