The Viking Mars is a brand new cruise ship, built this year (2022). While it is a relatively small ship when it comes to cruise liners, it's still an imposing vessel. It's big enough to enable them to fit a planetarium, fitness center, hair salon, a spa, and the usual shops, restaurants and cabins.

We have filmed quite a few vessels coming in and out of Holyhead port now, and the Viking Cruise Line ships are, without doubt, some of the most classy and good looking vessels about. Lovely lines, and an understated design. Brilliant.

Again, as per last time, when the Viking Jupiter arrived here, we also put a drone in the air, to get some excellent shots of the vessel at anchor. We filmed it taking on passengers, the pilot getting on board, winching the tenders back onto the ship, weighing anchor, and making way - just as the sun began to set too.

An incredible vessel!
