Ship Facilities

With a range of restaurants and eateries to choose from, Viking Sea is a culinary journey from The Restaurant to the World Café. Expect to enjoy varied menus and global cuisine inspired by the destinations you travel to. Viking believe that the cuisine is just as important as seeing the sights so they make sure to feature regional specialities using locally sourced ingredients:

  • The Restaurant- The main onboard dining venue with a wide choice of culinary offerings available and a daily-changing menu, The Restaurant is full of indulgence and highlights local cuisine and ingredients.
  • World Café- Enjoy a delicious range of dishes from global to destination-based cuisine. Featuring live cooking stations and al fresco dining, this is much more than your average buffet.
  • Aquavit Terrace- Dine al fresco in the evening at the Aquavit Terrace and enjoy the stunning sea views and crisp fresh air as you dine on local delights.
  • Pool Grill- A high end take upon the average burger bar, The Pool Grill offers made to order burgers, grilled fish and delicious skinny fries.
  • Manfredi’s Italian Restaurant- Savour rustic Tuscan delights at Manfredi’s, one of the best Italian restaurants at sea. Come with an appetite and enjoy the ever changing daily special packed full of wow factor.
  • The Chef’s Table- An all exclusive VIP table, the Chef’s table offers an ambitious tasting menu and beautiful wines.
  • The Kitchen Table- Experience dinner like never before with this part-excursion, part-dining experience. Offering the chance to go ashore and source ingredients before coming back to an onboard cooking school and intimate restaurant.

Entertainment onboard Viking Sea is varied and aplenty. The heart of the ship’s entertainment, the main theatre, is home to Viking’s signature live productions, as well as showing various lectures, films and Ted Talk broadcasts. There’s also a big screen in the Wintergarden, where guests can enjoy a hit movie under the starry night sky. However, if you’re looking for something a little livelier, the place to check out is Torshavn, where the drinks flow and the live music plays late into the night.

Spa and fitness

A truly innovative spa is iconic to Viking Ocean, and Viking Sea is no exception. Drawing upon traditional Nordic culture and its emphasis on holistic wellness, the spa offers a snow grotto where real snowflakes fall. Followed by the sauna, this is a truly invigorating experience designed to stimulate your circulatory system. Be treated to a massage or enjoy a trip to the salon and guarantee that you look and feel your best onboard.

Recreation

A favourite spot onboard any cruise ship is the pool deck, and Viking Sea doesn’t disappoint. Complete with sun loungers and a retractable roof, this relaxing space can be enjoyed whatever the weather. Inside the ship, guests will find various ways to stay occupied, from electronic games tables to The Viking Heritage Museum and a collection of small shops selling holiday souvenirs.

For something a little different, the ship offers an Enrichment Program which allows you to truly experience the destinations you visit and its food, culture, countryside and customs thanks to experts ready to impart their knowledge.

Customer reviews for Viking Sea

Just back from a cruise to the West Indies on Viking Sea. Cannot fault the ship, modern, clean, fantastic crew and fabulous food. Loved the selection of different eating places all included in the price. State room is a good size, balcony with table and 2 chairs. Visited a different island every day of the cruise with an included tour at every port. Some of the included tours involved sitting on a bus with just a stop at a view point ( not very interesting) others were more interesting, but alternative tours available at a price if you wanted. My only criticism of the ship was the lack of evening entertainment, the entertainment team only performed on four evenings, one evening showed the opera Aida, would prefer some type of entertainment every evening in the theatre. Would I go on a Viking cruise again....yes!

I sailed on the beautiful Viking Sea from Lisbon to La Coruna. I am an avid cruiser but this cruise stood out from all others. The vessel is brand new with a distinctive Scandinavian style which really appealed to me. The ship is small but this makes it very intimate and cosy. The Staterooms are furnish with comfortable and modern pieces. The are no inside or outside cabins as everyone has a balcony. The onboard café has a tasty selection of fresh offerings. The bar staff also prepare many fantastic cocktails. We enjoyed the very talented musicians who performed onboard; the pianist, a trio of classical musicians and also a guitarist were my favourites! The whole experience is very relaxed, there are no set rules to follow, everything is to your pace & preference. You must try a Nordic massage before you leave (so relaxing!). Steaks at Manfredi’s Italian were the best ive tasted on a cruise.  The onboard staff were very welcoming and truly happy to be, which made the cruise a delightful experience for all. My trip aboard the Viking Sea was an unforgettable experience; Iglu Cruise made this special trip happen so a big thank you for all of your help. I recommend this cruise to all and everyone.
