Viking Neptune

An adults-only paradise on the high seas

A floating home-away-from-home has never been as luxurious as the stalwart digs found aboard the recently debuted Viking Neptune. In keeping with the luxury cruise line’s ever-popular small-ship formula, the 930-passenger Viking Neptune ticks all the sumptuous seafaring boxes with its all-veranda makeup and sleek Scandinavian style.

Intentional design is the rule of thumb aboard Viking Neptune, where a curated Nordic art collection, hygge-inspired gathering spaces and wall-to-wall windows create a welcoming, if elevated, environment across all nine beautifully arranged decks.

A signature Nordic Spa equipped with soothing comforts, elevated cruise cuisine and gratis excursions are surely a draw, but the highlight here is simplicity. A similar layout across Viking’s entire ocean-going portfolio provides instant comfort on embarkation day, allowing you to breathe a sigh of relief the minute you set foot on the familiar gangway.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Art lovers will feel instantly at ease aboard Viking Neptune. Like its sister ships, the ninth ocean liner in the Viking portfolio features a signature Nordic art collection curated by Viking founder Torstein Hagen.
  • Viking Neptune makes excellent use of wall-to-wall windows and glass panels in its design to better connect (or in some cases, disconnect) you to the outside world. For example, an ingenious retractable glass ceiling allows you to enjoy a dip in the ship’s main pool or hot tub, regardless of the weather.
  • The bow-facing Explorers’ Lounge is the perfect spot to catch the sunset at sea or watch a port of call come into view, thanks to an uninterrupted wall of windows. Once the sun goes down, pull up a seat at Pap’s Bar and watch as an illuminated star chart brightens up the bar back and matching fiber optic projections dot the lounge’s ceiling.
  • Among the little luxuries available aboard the Viking Neptune is an enchanting afternoon tea in the glass-enclosed Wintergarden. While sipping your freshly made cuppa, look up to admire a stunning wooden trellis inspired by Yggdrasil, Norse mythology’s Tree of Life.
  • An all-veranda design makes even the most basic staterooms feel extra spacious. Sliding glass doors leading out to a full-sized (and furnished) ocean-view terrace flood your room with natural light.

Things to Know

  • Tucked away from the bustling main pool, an aft-facing infinity pool on deck seven provides gorgeous, uninterrupted vistas while Viking Neptune is at sea or near ports of call. Be sure to spend some time luxuriating in the warm waters or on the sun-dappled Aquavit Terrace.
  • Built-in handwash and sanitizer stations at the entrance to every eatery are a smartly designed way to help keep germs at bay. The intentional inclusion is just another example of Viking’s thoughtful blend of style and substance.
  • On-board perks are linked to your stateroom status. The higher class of accommodation you book, the more upgrades you enjoy. Suite guests, for example, receive the earliest embarkation times and priority booking for shore excursions, dining reservations and spa appointments.
  • Unusual for a cruise ship, the Nordic Spa’s gorgeous facilities are available to all guests at no extra charge. Be sure to spend some time enjoying the vitality pool, sauna and unique snow grotto.
  • While verandas are certainly a huge highlight of the staterooms, other luxuriously standard extras include heated bathroom floors and Viking-exclusive Freyja bath amenities.
