Viking's trained chefs are passionate about food and committed to providing a complete culinary experience. Menu selections include regional dishes for all to enjoy. Guests have a varied selection of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Start the day with a croissant and cappuccino on deck, or begin with a buffet. Enjoy a casual lunch or dinner Al Fresco, or join friends in the restaurant.


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 ship’s public areas are designed to make the most of the fantastic river views. Either from the sun deck, the lounge or the restaurant, a river cruise gives uninterrupted sightseeing from sunrise to sunset.
