Europe 2019: Trip Notes # 11

Europe 2019: Trip Notes # 11

Viking has a unique tradition. When the ship crosses the arctic circle, passengers are invited (or encouraged) to jump into a pool filled with ice. 

If successful, the passengers are anointed with a blue substance followed by drinking a glass of aquavit. Water temperature is checked for appropriate "coldness!"

Temperature Declared: 35.5 Degrees

Guests are also presented a certificate indicating that the arctic circle had been passed.
