Top 10 Unmissable Experiences On Board

There are lots of ways to spend your time on board a Viking ocean ship.

Here are just some of our favorites, all included in the cost of your cruise.


Take a dip in the glass-backed infinity pool, one of the first of its kind at sea

It’s the last word in immersive travel experiences—and you don’t even have to leave the ship to enjoy it.
Come on in, the water’s lovely.

Take a dip

Try traditional Norwegian waffles at Mamsen’s

Wherever you are in the world, you can savor a true taste of Scandinavia at Mamsen’s. The deli, named after the mother of Viking Chairman Torstein Hagen, serves waffles made to an authentic family recipe, with a choice of toppings, including gjetost, the delicious Norwegian brown goat cheese.

Tuck in

Savor a show-stopping steak in Manfredi’s

Described by many as the “best steak I’ve EVER had,” the house special rib eye at the fabulous Manfredi’s Italian Restaurant has to be eaten to be believed. Thick, juicy and cooked just the way you like it, it’s a perfect match for the fine Italian wine that accompanies it.

Buon appetito

Watch a movie under the stars

Box office hit, check. Best seats in the house, check. Popcorn, check. Everything you need for a great night out at the movies is made even greater by having the star-studded night sky above you. Cruising is the new drive-in.

That’s entertainment

Swing along with the sounds of the Rat Pack

Or sing along with a Beatles tribute band. Enjoy the soothing strains of a string quartet in the Explorers’ Lounge or head to Torshavn, our intimate cabaret, for low-key live music and the best cocktails in town.


Afternoon tea in the Wintergarden

Everyone loves afternoon tea and you can enjoy it every day at no extra charge, in our wonderful Wintergarden. Sweet.

More tea?

Work out outdoors

Yoga on the Sun Deck? Aerobics al fresco? Stretches in the sunshine? Keeping in shape is much more fun on board. And when the weather is less than perfect, a roof slides over the Main Pool and our Fitness Center is always open.

Be a sport

Burger by the pool

When stepping in for lunch is a step too far, tuck into a tasty snack outdoors. Burgers made from scratch with a choice of toppings and an ice-cold beer?

Enjoy it all at the Pool Grill

Step into the Snow Grotto

Just imagine, in the heat of a Caribbean summer, you could be cooling off in several inches of freshly fallen snow. Our Scandinavian Snow Grotto is one of the main attractions in The Spa, offering one of the most refreshing and unique experiences at sea.

Just chilling

Breakfast al fresco on your private veranda

Treat yourself to room service. Fresh fruit, muesli and yogurt? Eggs Benedict? Pancakes and bacon? Whatever you fancy, we can deliver breakfast straight to your veranda. What a great way to greet the day.

Good morning and good night
