Viking Line’s new LNG-powered flagship, ‘Viking Glory’, is to offer sophisticated conference facilities.

The conference venue, which can accommodate nearly 400 delegates, will offer panoramic views of the Baltic Sea from Deck 9.

They are open for bookings now before the ropax is delivered early next year.

‘Viking Glory’ will depart every evening from Stockholm and sail via Mariehamn to Turku, Finland. It will be possible for conference guests to choose from day cruises, scheduled sailings or a 24-hour voyage on board.

“We can’t wait to welcome our guests on board the new ‘Viking Glory’. The interiors, especially in the conference venue, are tastefully decorated, and outside an unparalleled view opens up of the most beautiful archipelago in the Baltic Sea.

“Naturally, we have equipped the vessel with cutting-edge technology and flexible solutions so that our customers will be able to use the premises in the best way possible,” said Viking Line’s Stig Pernell.

‘Viking Glory’s’ modern conference area will provide space for inspiration and relaxation, away from the more traditional training classrooms and enclosed lecture halls.

A unique sea view has been designed to inspire participants. Together with interior designers from Swedish architects Koncept, Viking Line has developed meeting room, with a balance between flexibility and fit for purpose facilities.

Located on Deck 9, the conference venue has 14 flexible rooms that can be combined as needed. All the rooms will be fitted with LED screens. The auditorium will have seating for 250 people and will be equipped with floor-to-ceiling screens.

Close to the conference venue will be additional premises of various sizes that can be booked by smaller groups. Specially designed programmes can be held here, with activities, entertainment and refreshments provided.

Each room will be named after lighthouses and other locations in the area in which the 63,813 gt ‘Viking Glory’ will sail.

She will have a total pax capacity of 2,800 and 922 cabins will be available in the 222.6 m long ship, as will 1,500 m of cargo space.
