Viking Jupiter will offer a couple of South America itineraries in 2019, already on sale.
The liner will be the 6th sister-ship following Viking Star, Viking Sea, Viking Sky, Viking Sun plus upcoming Viking Orion wich launches in June. By the time Viking Jupiter is introduced in February next year, Viking will become the largest small ship cruise line.
