Viking Ocean Cruises’ third oceangoing ship doesn’t tinker with the line’s magic formula for success. Instead, the 930-guest Viking Sky offers the same great features found aboard sister ships Viking Star and Viking Sea, including the infinity pool and Scandinavian spa. The spacious ship is hard not to fall in love with, especially with its complimentary WiFi, shore excursions, and mealtime beverages (including beer, wine, and soft drinks).
What We Love
Local Cuisine: Chefs use local ingredients to incorporate regional flavors on board, and you can find authentic Norwegian dishes served up day and night in Mamsen’s.
LivNordic Spa: This sumptuous spa offers a complimentary Nordic bathing experience that includes saunas, a cold shower, and even a snow room.
A Floating Library: Like her sisters, Viking Sky is lined with books. Expect interesting titles on polar exploration, Norwegian explorers, biographies of influential artists and writers, and — of course — books on travel and maritime history.
Best Known For
Scandinavian Style: With its light, airy spaces and blond wood, this ship has a look and feel that's entirely unique among the cruise industry. And with floor-to-ceiling windows in every public room and an abundance of attention to detail, you may just catch yourself saying, “this is how cruising should be!”
Convivial Atmosphere: Interesting lectures take the place of humming casinos, and nightly music is offered throughout the ship. There’s a complete lack of Vegas glitz here, and that’s just how Viking’s guests like it.

Who It's Best For
World Travelers: If you’re curious about the world and love the idea of cruising on a ship with a calm, classy, educational vibe, Viking Sky will be the perfect fit.
Don't Say We Didn't Warn You
Kids Aren't Encouraged: You must be 16 years old to sail, so there are no kids facilities or children’s programs offered.
