Deck 5 layout starts with the ship’s two lecture halls. Meeting rooms generally host multimedia presentations and expert lectures by scientists and wildlife experts. They are also used for business-, a large group- and private meetings, conferences at sea, special events, etc.
Viking Saga Cafe is a 24-hour open cafeteria, with a la carte menu (snacks, hot meals, drinks). The Cafe serves mainly local passengers, who use the Trollfjord ship as a port-to-port ferry boat. The portside part of the area has a separate seating area (“Viking Cafe”) often used by passengers for reading.
