Viking Sky provides a destination-oriented cruise experience with long days in ports and more overnight stays in special places. Classic touches include a walk-around promenade deck encircling the ship, reminiscent of those on ocean liners of the past and the two-deck Explorer’s Lounge topping the ship with its observation lounge.
Enjoy cocktails and conversation at such inviting areas as The Atrium in the center of what is known as the Viking Living Room — a multipurpose space with living room-like seating areas with comfortable chairs, sofas and bookshelves. Like her predecessors, Viking Sky boasts unique al fresco dining venues, an infinity pool cantilevered off the ship’s stern, a retractable magrodome that reveals the pool deck to the sky and a wraparound Promenade Deck.
Relax with friends at The Explorers’ Lounge where the panoramic views provide the perfect backdrop for pre-dinner cocktails. The Wintergarden, by the main pool area, is a lovely airy venue with elegant furnishings and is ideal for afternoon tea with sandwiches and such.
Relax on a couch at the Library and read a bestseller or simply enjoy the views. Indulge your senses with a variety of holistic wellness treatments at the acclaimed Spa, considered one of the best at sea. Recharge your energy levels at the Snow Grotto after a stop in the sauna, both are integral components of the thermal suite and are based on the Scandinavian ritual of alternating hot and cold therapies.
Dining choices range from casual cafés and poolside grills to fabulous wine-pairing menus and regional specialties. Exquisite culinary options include The Restaurant, serving delicious dinners with entrées that change nightly at tables with sea views for a delightful experience. Intimate dining is on the menu at The Chef’s Table, where you will be indulged with a five-course degustation menu prepared to a theme, and each course accompanied by a complimentary wine-pairing.
Casual choices include the World Café, serving international cuisine and local favorites. Head to Manfredi’s, for mouthwatering Italian specialties. The Kitchen Table is the place for market to table regional specialties. Aquavit Terrace also offers al fresco dining.
Savor Norwegian deli-style cuisine at Mamsen’s, the Pool Grill is the spot for made-to-order burgers and more. Room service is also offered 24/7.
Intimate, elegant, state-of-the-art and Scandinavian in design, the ships’ spacious staterooms are ultra-comfortable and all with a private veranda. Fourteen two-room Explorer Suites range from 720- to the immense 1,448-square-feet Owner’s Suite, boasting sweeping views from private wrap-around balconies. If you are looking for extra sumptuous accommodations, this luxurious setting is complete with a sauna and wine cabinet.
Specially themed shows reflecting the destinations are offered at the Theater. View films at the two movie houses showing both first-run and classics from the comfort of plush sofas. Additionally, entertainment includes fascinating onboard lectures and port talks covering such topics as history, art and culture.
Some evenings, local performers may come onboard adding to the cultural experience. Viking’s own troupe of singers and dancers also put on shows here. Cabaret-style shows are held in various other venues.
Viking Sky offers diverse cruises to breathtaking ports including Europe, the Mediterranean, Scandinavia and Fjords, Transatlantic, Eastern US and Canada and others.
