Built for discovery and with destination orientated cruises in mind, your Viking Sky voyage has fewer days at sea and longer days in port, plus more overnight stays. Viking Ocean Cruises believe that the best way for you to understand a country is through exciting explorations of its food, culture and customs.
Accompany the ship’s chef to a local market, join excursions led by expert guides or find your own way around some of the world’s most fabled destinations – the day is yours to spend as you please.

Viking Sky offers five stateroom grades within its all-veranda accommodation, with each promising a picture-perfect view best enjoyed with sunrise breakfasts and sunset champagne.
See the world yet unpack just once, unwinding in your ocean abode between destinations. Every detail has been considered, from the provision of deluxe toiletries in the bathroom to movies on demand and cashmere blankets draped over sofas. Each stateroom is designed with the understated elegance for which Viking Cruises are renowned. There is quite simply no finer way to travel.
Modern Scandinavian design elements flow throughout Viking Sea. The airy two-deck Explorer’s Lounge is the perfect space for mingling and storytelling, whilst the plush armchairs and sofas in The Living Room invite you to pass the time with coffee, books and floor-to-ceiling views.
High tea is served in the serene setting of the indoor/outdoor Wintergarden and you’ll find delicious Norwegian specialities created to treasured family recipes at Mamsen’s deli, tucked away in the Explorer’s Lounge.
Complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks accompany each meal on board Viking Sky, and with numerous dining venues on board, the hardest decision of your holiday will be where to eat next.
Whet your appetite at the indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace, where meals are served in surroundings that reflect the simplicity and comfort of Scandinavian style. Other dining options include The Kitchen Table Cookery Club, tasting menus at The Chef’s Table, authentic Tuscan fare at Manfredi’s Restaurant and gourmet cuisine served in elegant against a stylish backdrop in The Restaurant, Viking Sky’s main dining room.
Viking Sky’s Nordic influences are most evident in the spa, where you will find one of very few snow grottoes at sea. Schedule a little me time and draw upon the holistic wellness of Nordic culture for inspiration, encouraging healthy blood flow and improved circulation with some time amongst the snowflakes and chilled air. Warm up in the Finnish Sauna or in the bubbling hot tub, before swimming towards the best views at sea in Viking Sky’s infinity pool.
Live performances in the theatre and first-runs of blockbuster movies will entertain during evening hours, whilst during the day the theatre is abuzz with fresh insights on your destinations. Uncomfortable theatre seating has been banished and replaced with soft, spacious sofas, reiterating Viking Cruises’ desire for you to explore the world in comfort.
Evenings are enjoyed with friends in the Explorer’s Lounge, relaxing and sharing stories from the day in Torshavn or set to a harpist soundtrack in the airy Wintergarden.
Unlike your more traditional ocean cruise ships, you won’t find a casino, lavish stage shows or any kids clubs. Instead, you’re time on board is spent finding out relaxing, find out more about your destination, eating exceptional food and learning to cook the same dishes in expert-led cookery classes.
