Viking Ve cruise ship

Together with his brothers Vili and Odin, the Norse god Ve kills the primeval creature Ymir, ending this way the giants' rule. From Ymir's body, the brothers create heaven and earth. From the wood of two trees they create Ask and Embla - the first humans. Viking Ve hosts 190 guests in 95 staterooms. The Ve ship boasts the same design elements as the other Viking Longships, featuring deluxe accommodations, streamlined Scandinavian interiors and exceptional engineering. Viking Longships have new features including the revolutionary all-weather Aquavit Terrace bringing the outdoor scenery indoors, allowing passengers to enjoy the river views and al fresco dining. The Longships have two Explorer Suites which are the largest in Europe as well as seven Veranda Suites (two-room) with a veranda and a French balcony. The 39 Veranda Staterooms feature full-size balconies and there are also 22 French Balcony Staterooms. All Viking Longships, including Viking Ve boast organic herb gardens and onboard solar panels. Their hybrid engines are energy-efficient and reduce vibrations for a smooth ride.
