Destination-Focused Dining

Viking River Cruises believes dining is an important part of your cruise journey, and provides a celebration of fine food and regional specialties. Their highly trained chefs introduce the local cuisines using the freshest ingredients and regional menus pared with local wines to give a distinctive perspective into the region that is being visited.

Viking Ocean Cruises

Viking Ocean has ushered in a new era of ocean cruising by taking the innovative thinking behind their award-winning river cruises and bringing it to the epic setting of the sea. This cruise experience was inspired by their river cruise passengers. They asked their guests for their feedback and crafted the ultimate kind of cruise: a destination-focused experience. In 2015, Viking took destination cruising from the rivers to the ocean with the maiden season of the beautiful Viking Star.

Believing the best way to understand a country is through enrichment, Viking Ocean cruises allow you to truly explore your destination-through its cuisine, culture, and customs. You can even accompany the ship's chef to a local market; or view private collections at world-class museums.

Viking helps their guests to not just "check off" each port, and helps them immerse themselves in the region. That's why their ocean cruises are centered around where you go, not just how you get there-with hand-picked itineraries so you can dive deep into the local history, music, art, cuisine-everything about your destination. In addition, Viking includes excursions led by knowledgeable local guides in every port of call. You learn about the lands through which you travel via enriching lectures that bring history to life; through cultural experiences; in-depth destination guides provided before your trip; and on-demand programming-all designed to help you experience the most from your travels.
