  • Internet Access - For guests' convenience, all Viking ships have Internet access, as follows:

Alternatively, each ship has a few computers for guest use; there are desktop machines in Russia and laptops in Europe that guests may use free of charge. Guests who bring laptops to Russia may wish to bring a LAN cable for use in their stateroom; this may work a bit better than the wireless LAN in rural areas along the river.
    • Ships in China - There is an Internet caf? with desktop stations for guest use, free of charge. There is no onboard wireless network in China or Southeast Asia, so you will not be able to get Internet service on your personal computer while on the ship, although you may be able to do so during hotel stays.
    • Please note - Shipboard service may be unreliable during certain parts of the journey. The Internet connection functions via cellular service or satellite downlink, and there may be times when reception is not possible and/or when the connection is quite slow.

Norse Heritage

The Viking Akun was, according to ancient sources, one of two sons of Djilki who was an older brother of the Viking leader, Rurik. In the 9th century, they traveled from Scandinavia to settle in the area we know today as Kiev in Ukraine. Akun and his brother Igor are named in the Russian Primary Chronicle as signatories of the 944 Byzantine Treaty. They are believed to have been prominent members of the Vikings who fought against Byzantium. The name Akun is thought to be an older version is of Haakon, a very popular name for Norwegian rulers.
