Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. The ships’ dining areas are hospitable and inviting with a service that is friendly, attentive and personalised. Menu selections include regional dishes and contemporary cuisine to offer a variety of flavours designed to suit any palate. Start the day with croissants and cappuccino on deck, or perhaps a delicious buffet style breakfast. Enjoy a casual lunch or dinner Al Fresco, or join friends in the ship’s restaurant which has open seating, meaning you can sit next to a new guest each evening.


Hands-on demonstrations, cooking classes, traditional dance performances, and local tastings. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include the Dutch Masters or French impressionists, castles along the Rhine Valley, the formation of the European Union, the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the wine and cuisine of southern France, and key words and phrases in the local language wherever you are traveling. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.


The public areas are designed for guests to enjoy the stunning views on their cruise. Whether on the sun deck, lounge or the restaurant, fantastic sightseeing is available from sunrise to sunset.
