Viking just posted photos on their Viking Rivers F B page of the Float Out. The godmother of the ship is Sissel Kyrkjebø, a Norwegian soprano.

The press release has been posted already. https://www.vikingcruises.com/press/...ixth-ship.html I hope they also share a video of the ceremony like they did for Orion.

Christening will be in June, 2019 in Oslo.

I guess the next announcement we hear will be for the keel-laying of number 7.

We’re on the Southern Atlantic crossing in November 2019 - great itinerary, and only 4 days crossing the Atlantic at it’s narrowest point between Africa and South America.
Can’t wait!

Great News. Nice to see that Sissel is the godmother.
Viking will have a presence in all parts of the cruising world.
So many options and so little time.

Jupiter will be in Oslo twice in June of 2019. We are actually on one of those sailings. Does anybody know on which of those two days that the christening will take place?

No idea but I suggest following the press releases in Viking's Media Center. They may eventually give a date there.

Also, Viking has finally posted the Jupiter Float Out Video on FB "Viking River Cruises"
