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 informative lectures 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.
Indulge in attentive table service in the upscale Restaurant as you sail into your next port. Greet the morning with a sumptuous buffet. Enjoy a savory soup and a light salad midday. Come evening, settle in for a relaxed, multi-course fine-dining experience. Open seating allows you to dine with the same guests or meet someone new each day. If you wish, enjoy a more casual meal, from a breakfast croissant to lighter evening fare, on the Sun Deck or outdoor Aquavit Terrace, our al fresco dining area at the bow of the ship.
An onboard daily newsletter, Viking Daily, featuring information about daily activities, shore excursions and tour departure times is delivered to your stateroom every evening.
