Dining on board Viking River Cruise

A Quick Look at Dining with Viking

Dining is one of Viking's most passionate parts of their service. Each meal is prepared with fresh local ingredients hand-picked by the chefs themselves to a standard that truly represents the places you visit. To make sure that dining is an enjoyable and unforgettable experience, their selection of meals cater to almost any taste, with lighter and vegetarian options for those with special diets. It's not just what you fancy, but where you fancy, as Viking also offers a number of places to enjoy your meal, including the exclusive Aquavit Terrace al fresco dining available only on Viking Longships.

Main Restaurant

Designed with simple elegance, the Main Restaurant provides an amazing blend of luxury and homeliness. At breakfast, the restaurant boasts a whole buffet of treats for you to enjoy, from croissants to cereals and salads, and an equally wonderful selection at lunch. Each night, dinner takes place in the Main Restaurant, offering great dishes such as Duck Breast & Thai Mango Salad and Pan Seared River Trout, followed by desserts such as hot apple tart or even a simple ice cream.  

Main Lounge

If you prefer a more relaxing atmosphere, the Main Lounge is available throughout the day. Providing guests with a warm and comfortable alternative, the Lounge boasts an outstanding panoramic view and top-quality bar, making it a place you can go to whether for a snack, drink or even just some casual conversation. In the evenings, there are cultural performances of dance and music from local entertainers.

Aquavit Terrace (Longships)

Heading outside is the Aquavit Terrace, the most beautifully designed area of the ship. Set on the front of Viking's longships, and accessed from the Main Lounge, you'll find a number of refreshing dishes available exclusively to the Aquavit Terrace, all of which are enjoyed with spectacular unhindered views of the scenery.

Taste of...

Viking's signature event is renowned for providing impressive demonstrations and tastings of the regional dishes found in the countries on your cruise. Giving insights into the creation and refinement of a number of great foods such as Leberwurst and even the well-known pretzel, you'll have the opportunity to discuss and experience whole new aspects of each country's culture.
