Viking Vela to sail the Med, Northern Europe during inaugural season

Getting to know Viking Vela's offering - Living Room, Explorers' Lounge and Torshavn

VIKING VELA
SHIP OF THE MONTH – MARCH 2024
WEEK 1 OF 4

Viking’s newest ocean ship, the Viking Vela, was floated out in December last year, marking a major construction milestone and the first time the ship had touched water. Scheduled to debut in December 2024, Viking Vela will spend her inaugural season sailing voyages in the Mediterranean and in Northern Europe.

Classified as a small ship, Viking Vela has a gross tonnage of 54,300 tons, with 499 staterooms that can host 998 guests, and will join Viking’s award-winning ocean fleet of sister ships.

Here, Viking offers a closer look at some of the spacious public spaces guests will experience whilst cruising aboard Viking Vela.

In true Viking style, they take a different approach to design on their ocean ships – so much so that if it weren’t for the all-encompassing water views, guests wouldn’t know they were on a cruise ship at all. Viking engaged esteemed hotel designers to design and furnish their beautiful interiors, so that from the moment a guest steps on board they will feel the same sense of serenity, warmth and comfort symbolised in the Norwegian concept of hygge. This notion of quiet contentment is in the very air of their light-filled, serene spaces, which together create a true home at sea for their guests.

The Living Room Bar & Atrium

The Living Room’s clinker-built bar, inspired by ancient Viking longships, is perhaps the most charming at sea. Located at the heart of the ship, it is the ideal setting to relax with a drink and catch up with new friends.

Explorers’ Lounge

With two-storey panoramic windows ensuring incredible views are always on display, the Explorers’ Lounge is inspired by epic journeys of discovery. There’s no better place to share a glass of wine with friends and take in the magnificence of the world.

Torshavn

Night owls will flock to our atmospheric, 1940s lounge-inspired bar, Torshavn. Open from 9PM until late, Torshavn hosts a live band every evening and boasts the largest collection of vintage Armagnacs at sea, dating back to 1935. For those wanting to kick up their heels and dance the night away with a cocktail or two, this is the place to be.
