From our thoughtfully curated Library and the insights of our guest lecturers to regional cuisine and vintages from your destinations, Viking helps you connect to your destination in every possible way.

On Shore

The Viking Way® of exploration takes you deeper, offering behind-the-scenes insights and opportunities. While we include the expected and iconic, such as visits to renowned museums and notable landmarks, we also work hard to offer Local Life, Working World and optional Privileged Access® experiences in places otherwise difficult to visit.

The Restaurant

Our main dining venue, the Restaurant offers gracious service, included wine and beer, and streamlined Scandinavian design. The menu includes regional cuisine and always available classics enhanced with locally sourced ingredients, so you can explore new cultures through food.
