Viking’s trained chefs are committed to providing a culinary experience that will suit all palates. Menu selections include regional dishes and a variety of flavours from around the world. The ship’s dining areas are friendly and inviting. Start your day with a buffet breakfast on the sun deck, or maybe a croissant and cappuccino. Have 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 public ares on the ship have been designed for guests to make the most of the stunning views. Whether you are on the sun deck, in the lounge or enjoying dinner in the restaurant, a river cruise provides uninterrupted sightseeing throughout the whole day from morning until night.
