Viking Line has put the finishing touches to a newbuilding order at Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry in China.

Viking, which inked a letter of intent for the vessel last November, today firmed up the EUR 194m ($207m) project. 

The 63,000-gt ship will hit the water in 2020 and run between Turku in Finland and Stockholm Sweden via the Aland Islands.

Viking promised a brand new passenger experience after hiring Scandinavian architects to handle the interior design.

Jan Hanses, chief executive of Viking, could not immediately be reached for comment on the deal today.
