Viking Skadi

About Viking Skadi

With its understated yet contemporary Scandinavian design, Viking Skadi exudes the same air of elegance that guests have come to expect from all Viking River Cruise ships. Floor-to-ceilings windows and skylights are featured across the ship, while muted earth tones, potted plants and fresh flowers adorn the public spaces.

When you’re not off exploring historical treasures, the dedicated crew provide guests with plenty of activities. Enjoy informative lectures and presentations in the Observation Lounge or bury your head in a book from the onboard library. The sun deck provides the perfect space to watch the world go by as you soak up the rays and enjoy stunning views between ports.

Viking River Cruises are at the forefront in ecological technology. Solar panels provide green power, while hybrid engines are environmentally friendly and produce less vibrations for a smoother ride. Free WiFi is available shipwide with two public computers available in the atrium, enabling you to stay in touch and share photos with loved ones throughout your voyage.

Wine, beer and soft drinks are all complimentary as part of Viking River Cruises’ All Inclusive packages, while bottled water is replenished in your cabin daily. What’s more, you can tuck in to fresh, seasonal dishes as you take in scenic river views through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the elegant main restaurant.

A shore excursion of two to four hours is included at each port of call, and you can expect to discover a new destination every day. Whether you opt for a Standard Stateroom or a two room Explorer Suite, all cabins are located on the outside of the ship and give you access to river views from the moment you wake up.

It’s been said that the best way to know a culture is through its food and wine. Both engage your senses and provide a window into the traditions and essence of a land. Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. The ships’ dining areas are hospitable and inviting; the service is friendly, attentive and personalised. Menu selections include regional dishes and contemporary cuisine to offer a variety of flavours designed to suit any palate. You have choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not just in food selection, but also in where and how you enjoy them. Greet the morning with a croissant and cappuccino on deck, or begin your day with a sumptuous buffet breakfast. Have a casual lunch or dinner al fresco, or join friends in the restaurant. Open seating allows you to mingle with the same guests every evening or meet someone new each day.


The Restaurant

Gaze at breathtaking scenery through the Restaurant’s panoramic windows as you dine on regional specialties and contemporary cuisine. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant, with high-quality table linens, china, cutlery and glassware at every meal.

  • Experience: Complimentary
  • Cuisine: Wine

Aquavit Terrace

Revolutionary in concept and design, this spacious outdoor seating area at the bow of the ship is perfect for having a casual meal al fresco, meeting friends for drinks or reading a book, all while enjoying breathtaking views and basking in the fresh air.

  • Experience: Snacks
  • Cuisine: Casual

As with your stateroom, the public areas are designed to make the most of the splendid views. Whether from the sun deck, the Lounge or the restaurant, a river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing, from the time the morning mist rises from the water to when the setting sun announces the end to another remarkable day.


The Bar

Located in the Lounge, the bar is lively and inviting - a gathering place for guests to view the scenery, have a drink and catch up on the day with friends.

Library

Located in the heart of the Upper deck adjacent to the Aquavit Terrace, the library has comfortable seating and excellent reading light. Their ships’ libraries carry approximately 80 books, in various languages but mostly English, and several games such as chess, backgammon and playing cards. Pick up a magazine or board game and enjoy it in the lounge just steps away.

Onboard Boutique

Forget to bring something? Looking for a magazine or some gift items? The onboard boutique on the main deck has everything you need to make your voyage comfortable and convenient.

The Lounge

The lounge has a baby grand piano, where a pianist plays classical and modern melodies during cocktail hour and sometimes at lunch. The music drifts to and through the Aquavit Terrace -a nice accompaniment on warm, sunny days.

The cruise director hosts a variety of informal evening entertainment in the lounge; from pub trivia nights to the cruise slideshow cum sales pitch, it's all done in a spirit of fun and inclusivity. The lounge is also equipped with large pull-down movie screens and surround-sound for movie nights, and regional performers occasionally come onboard to provide additional entertainment. 

Let the staff treat you to personalised service, fine wines and delicious, regional cuisine. Engage in immersive cultural activities. Take advantage of the wide array of amenities, from the onboard Concierge to ship-wide Wi-Fi and 24-hour beverage bar.


Sun Deck

Enjoy the sunshine up on the Sun deck with its 360-degree views and shaded sitting area. Guests are also provided with a small putting green and a walking track, for those looking to keep fit.

Hands-on demonstrations, cooking classes, traditional dance performances, and local tastings. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include the Dutch Masters or French impressionists, castles along the Rhine Valley, the formation of the European Union, the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the wine and cuisine of southern France, and key words and phrases in the local language wherever you are traveling. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.


Daily Shore Excursions

Most passengers participate in the daily shore excursions included in the cruise fares, and a fair number also opt for the fee-added alternative trips provided by the line. Shore excursions are typically of the basic bus or walking tour variety, but paid-for excursions also include events like wine-tastings and off-ship dinner outings. Prices for these range between 30 and 60 Euros per person. QuietVox headsets with earphones (found in each cabin) are provided for every tour so that everyone can hear what local guides are saying.
