Screen Time Offering a daily dose of enrichment, the onboard Atrium screen features thoughtfully selected imagery and celebrates our cultural partnerships across the globe CULTURE In keeping with the special touches that evoke our Scandinavian heritage, each Viking ocean ship features a large screen in the Atrium displaying a selection of carefully curated imagery to add insight into the destinations you are visiting. Via partnerships with cultural organizations around the world, guests have access to a unique collection, tailored to their itinerary while also evoking the exploratory spirit of the Vikings themselves. The Royal Horticultural Society is one such partner. They have worked with Viking to provide access to their images of botanic art. As Fiona Davison, head of libraries and exhibitions, says, “In addition to being beautiful, national flower emblems often give insights into the ecosystems, culture and history of a country, and we hope that guests enjoy seeing botanical illustrations of the national flowers of the countries they pass through.” Collections displayed in port and at sea are different. But together, with a new slide projected every few minutes, they represent a wide variety of genres including culture, history and nature. IN PORT When docked in port, guests are able to view intriguing images depicting local culture as it relates to the port country. From the Atlas: Images from the British Library feature maps, landscapes and anthropological images from travel books spanning ancient times through the 19th century.
