The new designs will be featured onboard Swan Hellenic's Vega class ships
Tillberg Design of Sweden and Swan Hellenic have revealed the interiors of the cruise line’s new Vega-class ships in a virtual video tour.
The video takes viewers through the ship in the same journey they would take when returning from an expedition on a Zodiac, emerging into the basecamp changing room. The video then passes through the ship’s reception, before visiting the Swan Restaurant and Observation Lounge. The tour continues with stops in the Club Lounge, outdoor Pool Bar and Grill and panoramic sauna, before concluding in one of the ship’s balcony staterooms.
“Defining a new generation of expedition ships for the legendary Swan Hellenic has been incredibly inspiring and rewarding for us,” said Frederik Johansson, partner and executive project director for Tillberg Design of Sweden. “We are humbled by the trust and confidence that has been placed in us throughout the design process, working closely with a team that has a very clear vision for its iconic brand but which also gave us the creative freedom of a blank slate.”
Minerva, the first Vega-class ship, is currently being constructed at Helsinki Shipyard in Finland and is scheduled to be delivered in November 2021. She will be followed by two sister ships in 2022.
“We’re delighted with the way these designs have come together, creating unique experiences that honour Swan Hellenic’s cultural expedition heritage while bringing it bang up to date in comfort, services and above all vision, transforming the inward-looking paradigm of classic cruise ships into a world of casual comfort and elegance that looks outwards to see what others don’t,” said Andrea Zito, CEO of Swan Hellenic.
