Viking Prestige


Ship Description

The 2011 sailing season will welcome the newest ship in Europe, Viking Prestige, sister ship to the extraordinary Viking Legend that launched in 2009. Viking Prestige will carry 188 guests on some of the most popular itineraries. Each of these state-of-the-art vessels has two 310-square-foot suites and 97 staterooms, all deluxe (except for the 6 single staterooms) with either French balconies or picture windows. With good deck height, Viking Prestige is similar to Viking Sun and Viking Helvetia, but has a slightly sleeker shape for ultimate flexibility. Best of all, Viking Prestige is a "green" ship, running on hybrid diesel-electric engines that produce 20% fewer emissions and reduced noise/vibration. Cutting-edge design, unmatched comfort and environmentally conscious-Viking Prestige has it all.
The Observation Lounge is a terrific place to meet old and new friends before and after meals. It boasts a large sitting area with chairs, small tables, sofas and a bar area with barstools. The Lounge has a projector and screen installed in the ceiling, so slides can be shown, and there is a stereo system and dance floor.
Atrium/Seating Area is the upper part of Viking Prestige's grand atrium. It features a spacious, comfortable seating area and large panoramic windows, so you can relax, read or watch the scenery go by. There is a 24-hour tea and coffee station with a fruit basket, and some showcases displaying items available at the onboard shop just downstairs. The middle deck lobby (reception lobby) is accessible via the grand staircase.
The restaurant is where all meals are served during your cruise. Because it features panoramic windows, you will not miss any of the scenery while you are dining. It seats 189 guests at 29 tables which vary in size, accommodating 6, 8 or 10 guests per table. The dining room is open seating, so you are free to sit where you like—a great way to make new friends. The atmosphere is casual but elegant, with high-quality table linens, china, cutlery and glassware. The room has a stereo system for playing quiet music during meals.
The library has comfortable seating and excellent reading light. There are approximately 80 books from which to choose, in various languages but mostly English, and several games such as chess, backgammon and playing cards.
The Viking Prestige's atrium is a large, airy space with a grand staircase to the upper lobby and direct access to the Restaurant. The middle deck lobby is where you enter the ship, and serves as your information center throughout your voyage. Your Program Director's desk is located here, so that you can easily ask questions or discuss the day's activities. Here is a 24-hour tea and coffee station with a fruit basket.
On the Sun Deck you can enjoy sunshine and fresh air while you take in 360-degree views of the scenery as you sail past castles, towns, villages, trees and vineyards. Stand at the railings or relax in a comfortable deck chair. Some of the seating has a canopy for those who prefer shade. There is an access way from the Sun Deck to the bridge as well as to the Library via staircase at the ship's stern. The sundeck can be accessed from the library and the atrium
