Dining on the Viking Ra tends to be buffet style. On-board meals feature Egyptian specialities along with International classic dishes.


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.


After a days’ sightseeing, nothing is more welcoming than a soak in a hot tub or a dip in the pool. The ship also has a spa with a variety of spa treatments available. Relax on the sun deck and in the evenings enjoy a drink in the bar or a chat in the public lounges with family and friends.
