Health and fitness

While your ship does not have any fitness equipment, feel free to walk the walking track on the Sun Deck for your daily exercise, or take part in our shore excursions and walking tours. In many major cities, you may access nearby First-Class hotels and use their Fitness Center and Spa facilities as part of Viking’s relationship with those hotels. See your onboard Concierge for details.

Kids and teens

Due to the nature of Viking cruises, they do not maintain specific facilities or services for children aboard cruise vessels. In the circumstances you and all members of your party must be aged 18 or over on or before the day you are scheduled to embark on the cruise vessel.
