Viking Polaris debuted in 2022 as the Viking's second expedition ship and with an inaugural season in Antarctica. The 378-guest, 189-stateroom vessel is designed to meet Polar Class 6 standards for traveling to such rugged regions but still embodies Viking’s modern Scandinavian luxury experience. Staterooms offer plenty of storage, heated bathroom floors, and the signature Nordic balcony.
Other onboard highlights are the luxe lounging spaces, including the two-level Explorer's Lounge at the bow, along with dining like Manfredi’s and the World Cafe (with excellent fresh sushi). The live entertainment each evening is a treat after a day of exploring Antarctica.
