Viking Skirnir

Why cruise on this ship?

Skirnir is a humble servant of the gods. When the lovesick Freyr, god of sunshine and prosperity, falls in love with the beautiful goddess Geror, he sends Skirnir to woo her. The coy goddess refuses Skirnir’s advances until he threatens her with his mystical wand. But Skirnir is smart; for delivering Geror, he requires that Freyr give him his powerful sword as a reward.

The river arm of Viking is just one of Viking's cruise options, the super-premium Norwegian ocean cruise line known for its superlative cruise experience, small ships with Scandi-chic interiors and fantastic destination and cultural enrichment programme.

On the river, Viking offers cruisers the chance to sail in Europe, Asia, Africa and the US, offering facilities like sundeck swimming pools, relaxing Aquavit terraces and well-stocked libraries. Continually making new additions and expanding, Viking has recently upped its Nile river cruise game with two new ships, and also sails the Mississippi river.

The cruise line also champions themed cruises, taking passengers to the likes of the Passion Play at Oberammergau and offering exclusive pre-and post-cruise land tours.
