Designed by legendary naval architects Yran & Storbraaten, the team behind The Yachts of Seabourn, the new Viking Embla offers state-of-the-art engineering, design and luxury. The Viking Embla, one of the new Viking Longships that debuted in Europe in 2012, provides guests with more ways to personalize their trip. Choose from a variety of stateroom classes, onboard entertainment options and ship locations from which you can enjoy sailing through the scenery, all the while enriching your time in some of Europe’s most remarkable destinations. The Viking Embla features more full-size verandas and full-size staterooms than on any other ship in Europe. Plus, the lounge has been reinvented with Viking’s patent pending design that allows floor-to-ceiling windows to roll aside to create a unique area that combines the comfort of the indoors with the fresh air and exhilaration of the outdoors. The new Aquavit Terrace is sure to be a favorite location for scenic cruising. Two Explorer Suites feature spectacular 270° views with a private wraparound veranda. Veranda Suites feature two full rooms with a veranda off the living room and a French balcony in the bedroom. Enjoy the indoor-outdoor Aquavit Terrace at the bow of the ship, or relax on the Sun Deck. These “green” ships, featuring energy-efficient hybrid engines, solar panels and an organic herb garden, were named to honor prominent members of the Norse pantheon. Each ship carries 190 guests in comfortable, understated elegance, with hotel-style beds and amenities like 26-inch flat-panel TVs and in-room refrigerators.
