Vikling’s Den

A play area, the Vikling’s Den is provided for our younger passengers. There are suitable toys, chairs and tables, games, activities and a television showing cartoons or other children’s programming.

Parents please note that although this is a safe environment, it is not supervised and children on board remain your responsibility.
