The next day we wake up to a full sea day of relaxing and scenic cruising.
We start with the complementary Room Service Breakfast. We ordered our breakfast the night before and it included a wide range of hot and cold options. You select a time you would like it to arrive.
Then, we take part in the Blue Nose Ceremony also known as the Arctic Dip. The Blue Nose Ceremony is where you dip in near-freezing water while entertain or leaving the arctic circle.
After, we relax and enjoy our first sea day onboard the Viking Ocean Cruises Viking Sea by exploring the ship. We enjoy all the facilities of the spa and relax in the Explorers lounge.
For lunch, we eat at the Pool Grill and enjoy the famous Viking Burger. The pool grill also offers hot dogs, steaks, sandwiches and vegetarian options. You can also enjoy fresh salads.
Our scene sailing took us past Torghatten mountain. The mountain is known for its characteristic hole through the middle. The mountain was formed during the Ice Age when ice and water eroded the looser rocks. The harder rocks resisted erosion and created the hole.
Later, we meet the chefs of the Viking Sea and tour the Galley. The tour is a great way to see behind the scenes of the 930 guest Viking Sea. The galley is a 24-hour operation and serves over 9,000 dishes a day. This one galley serves all the restaurants onboard, the buffet and room service.
The galley tour is available to all guests with no need to pre-book. Check the daily guide for more information or speak to a crew member onboard. The tour lasts around 30 minutes.
Special thanks to Viking Cruises for inviting us to be guests of Viking.
