Welcome to the world’s leading small ship cruise line where itineraries are designed for the curious traveller to help you discover and engage with the food, culture, countryside and customs of each destination visited. Viking Cruises are highly regarded in all aspects of what they offer and they have series of accolades to their name including being rated best in 10 out of 12 Cruise Critic categories by members. Offering beautiful ships, destination focused dining and excellent inclusive value, it’s easy to see why Viking is the preferred choice for so many cruisers.


Perhaps the hardest decisions you’ll have to make on your cruise is where to dine each evening because each of the spectacular restaurants onboard are included in the price of your fare. From sophisticated regional dishes and specialties from the Chefs to rustic Italian cooking and other global favourites, these restaurants offer the finest cuisine at sea. Highlights include Wintergarden where you can participate in a calming tea ceremony or indulge in afternoon tea under an elegant canopy of Scandinavian trellised wood, accompanied by the soft music of a string quartet and the Chef’s Table where superb multi-course tastings are exquisitely paired with select vintages.

Food & Drink

A cruise with Viking presents a world of enriching opportunities. On port days you can head to the market and pick fresh local ingredients before returning to the ship to learn how to prepare regional dishes at The Kitchen Table - Viking’s onboard culinary school.  Viking have also partnered with TED Talks, a non profit organisation devoted to sharing bold new ideas that spark conversation. These ideas span a broad range of topics from science and the arts to every day ways to make the most out of life. Viking also regularly welcome onboard world-class guest lecturers to shed light on your destinations art, architecture, music, natural world and more, giving you expert insight so you can make the most of your time in port.


Each Viking itinerary includes at least one iconic cultural performance from the region, whether it’s the Catalan Rumba, Italian Opera, Greek dancing or world renowned Mariinsky performers from St Pertersburg. In addition to these spectacular performances, guests can also enjoy listening to live classical compositions from Viking’s resident musicians or watch the Emmy award-winning Metropolitan Opera Live in HD under the starlight ‘sky’ of the theatre.
