Viking’s trained chefs are committed to providing a culinary experience with regional specialities served daily. Start your day with a croissant and cappuccino on deck, or maybe enjoy a buffet breakfast with a variety of hot and cold dishes. You could enjoy lunch Al Fresco and join friends for dinner with the open seating allowing you to meet someone new 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.


Wander around the ships public areas and enjoy the views from the sun deck or terrace.
