Viking Sineus

Sineus was a brother of Rurik, and sailed with him from Scandinavia to the location of present-day Kiev in Ukraine. According to the 12th-century Primary Chronicle, Sineus settled in Beloozero, now called Belozersk, on the shores of Lake Beloye, where he secured these lands for the growing Kievan Rus empire.

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.   

Health and fitness

While your ship does not have any fitness equipment, feel free to walk the walking track on the Sun Deck for your daily exercise, or take part in our shore excursions and walking tours. In many major cities, you may access nearby First-Class hotels and use their Fitness Center and Spa facilities as part of Viking’s relationship with those hotels. See your onboard Concierge for details.  

Kids and Teens

Due to the nature of Viking cruises, they do not maintain specific facilities or services for children aboard cruise vessels. In the circumstances you and all members of your party must be aged 18 or over on or before the day you are scheduled to embark on the cruise vessel.
