Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. The ships’ dining areas are hospitable and inviting; the service is friendly, attentive and first class. Menu selections include regional dishes and contemporary cuisine to offer a variety of flavours designed to suit any palate. Start the day with a croissant and cappuccino on the sun deck or enjoy a buffet breakfast. Lunch or dinner can be taken Al Fresco or in the ship’s restaurant with open seating. Guests can enjoy chatting with friends while sipping on a cocktail or two.


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.


A river cruise on the Viking Egil provides guests with spectacular views along the river whether it is from the sun deck, lounge or the restaurant. Uninterrupted sightseeing is available from sunrise to sunset throughout the day.
