The middle deck reception lobby area is a great place to get information during your journey. Your Program Director’s desk is located here, so that you can easily ask questions or discuss the day’s activities. There is a 24-hour tea and coffee station with a fruit basket and convenient restrooms.

Sun Deck

Enjoy sunshine and fresh air while you take in 360-degree views of the scenery. Stand at the railings or relax in a comfortable deck chair. Some of the seating has a canopy for those who prefer shade. The sun deck is adjacent to the Sky Bar and there is an access way to the bridge.

Restaurant

Restaurant The restaurant is where all meals are served during your cruise. Because it features panoramic windows, you will not miss any of the scenery while you are dining. It seats all guests at tables which vary in size, accommodating 6, 8 or 10 guests per table. The dining room is open seating, so you are free to sit where you like—a great way to make new friends. The atmosphere is casual but elegant, with high-quality table linens, china, cutlery and glassware.

Sky Bar

This enclosed bar on the sun deck level provides seating at small tables designed to accommodate 2, 4 or 6 guests. A fantastic location for relaxing with friends while enjoying the scenery through panoramic windows.

Aquavit Terrace

The Upper Deck features a stunning lounge area for relaxing with friends, enjoying a lecture or demonstration, or taking in an appropriate film. On this ship, the lounge has a very special feature—glass walls that roll silently away to create an indoor-outdoor space! Relax and sample its namesake, aquavit, which means “water of life” in Latin.

Library

Located in the heart of the Upper deck adjacent to the Aquavit Terrace, the library has comfortable seating and excellent reading light. Our 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.

Life Onboard Viking Freya

Viking FreyaThe best way to discover the heart of Europe is to travel along its great rivers. And there is no better way to do it than aboard the brand-new deluxe Viking Freya. Stroll the decks at sunset, linger in the elegant lounge and adjacent indoor-outdoor Aquavit Terrace, take in the splendor of Europe’s breathtaking scenery from panoramic windows in our elegantly appointed public areas, or from the privacy of your veranda or French balcony stateroom. The ship’s staterooms feature hotel-style beds and all the finest amenities. Carrying a maximum of 190 passengers, Viking Freya offers an intimate atmosphere where passengers can really get to know fellow vacationers.Viking Longship Aquavit Terrace

Al fresco dining aboard Viking Freya

Imagine waking as the mist rolls off the river, stopping in the lounge for a frothy cappuccino, and heading out to the Aquavit Terrace to silently cruise through the early morning light. That is one definition of a Viking happy hour. Another one is in the more traditional sense: unwinding in the late afternoon with a pint of beer or glass of wine, chatting with friends and enjoying a delicious light bite. With the Aquavit Terrace equipped with grills and plentiful seating, each of these al fresco “happy hours” will be yours to indulge in.

Dining With Chef

Fine dining aboard Viking Freya

At lunch, select from the soup and sandwich bar, or a choice of entrées and dessert. And for dinner, you are treated to a five-course gourmet menu with regional specialties. You can also select from our regional wines to perfectly complement your meal. And wherever you sail, you will find enhancements reflecting your itinerary—it is all part of experiencing the local culture.
