Dining Venues

Viking Ocean Cruises offer many exciting dining choices, each with breathtaking views. From sophisticated regional dishes and chef’s selections with wine pairings to rustic Italian cuisine and global fare.

  • The Restaurant. The main dining venue, The Restaurant offers the highest onboard dining experience amid a clean and streamlined Scandinavian design. In an open and inviting atmosphere, breakfast, lunch and dinner are served with sweeping exterior views through all-glass walls—so your destination will always be close by. The menu includes regional cuisine and always available American classics enhanced with locally sourced ingredients, so you can explore new cultures through food.
  • Manfredi's Italian Restaurant. Manfredi’s offers the best of Italian cuisine, whether the farm-inspired heartiness of Tuscany or the famed flavors from the heart of Rome. Subdued, ambient lighting creates a warm and welcoming air in this traditional restaurant, recalling Italy’s beloved trattorias and a rich European heritage. Chianti by the carafe, freshly prepared pastas and generous antipasto are accompanied by fresh seafood and a true spirit of abbondanza. This restaurant’s private dining room provides an opportunity to have an intimate meal with family, business colleagues or newfound friends.
  • The Chef's Table. The sommeliers and culinary masters at The Chef’s Table create the perfect pairing of food and wine. During a multicourse tasting, they pour select vintages and serve thoughtfully prepared dishes made for each other. Drawing on the grapes and spices that have been enhancing gastronomic pleasures for centuries, your expert hosts will enlighten every sip and forkful with fascinating commentary as you experience a thrilling synergy of aromas and flavors. This restaurant’s private dining room provides an opportunity to have an intimate meal with family, business colleagues or newfound friends.
  • World Café. With live cooking, open kitchens and buffet-style meal service, the World Café provides a vibrant interactive experience and a wide range of international flavors in a casual environment. Guests can choose their favorite foods—from the deli, the pasta or wok station, sushi bar or dessert station—prepared and presented in a stylish setting. Dine indoors or al fresco at shaded wood tables on the Aquavit Terrace, both offering stunning panoramic views.
  • Aquavit Terrace. In the spirit of the revolutionary outdoor settings of Viking's award-winning river ships, Viking Ocean Cruises have created the Aquavit Terrace, providing more al fresco dining experiences than on any ship at sea. Located outside the World Café at the stern of the ship, the inviting terrace is transformed by night into a magical space where your destination is your dining room. By day, it’s a great place to dine and relax in the lounge area around the Infinity Pool.
  • Mamsen's. Located in the Explorers’ Lounge and named for “Mamsen,” the Hagen family matriarch, this venue offers Norwegian specialties for breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack or evening treat. The array of menu items includes Scandinavian pastries and cakes; waffles, according to Mamsen’s recipes, served with either Norwegian goat cheese or jam; salmon gravlax and other open-faced sandwiches; and late-night split pea soup to warm the heart and soothe the soul.
  • Wintergarden. Late afternoon tea—that hallmark of English civility—is served in the Wintergarden. Freshly made finger sandwiches, richly textured scones and decadent desserts are presented on bountiful tiered carts, all from the kitchen of Viking's masterful pastry chef. In this elegant space under a canopy of Scandinavian trellised wood, you can participate in a calming tea ceremony or indulge in an afternoon tea service while enjoying the soft strains of a string quartet. With a park-like setting and panoramic views, it’s an inspiring respite after a day of exploration.
  • Pool Grill. For a relaxed lunch or an afternoon snack, the Pool Grill serves casual fare prepared to order. Or for a lighter meal, a small salad bar is available. A condiment bar lets you customize your meal to suit your tastes with sides from grilled mushrooms to savory red-cabbage slaw. The poolside atmosphere welcomes lounging and leisurely dips in the water; the nearby Pool Bar offers regional cocktails.
  • Room Service. Care to enjoy a quiet dinner in the comfort of your stateroom? A midnight snack? Or perhaps breakfast in bed? For your convenience, Viking Ocean Cruises offer 24-hour room service, 7 days a week, with many of Viking's signature dishes to choose from, such as the Chairman’s favorite Norwegian poached salmon with cucumber salad or Viking's classic Caesar salad.
  • The Kitchen Table. Immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine on an interactive culinary journey. At Viking's onboard cooking school, experience firsthand how Viking Ocean Cruises ships’ world-class chefs bring distinct, local flavors from market to table. On sea days, you’ll learn to cook dishes highlighting an upcoming destination and take home recipes so you can savor the flavors at home. On port days, you’ll handpick ingredients at a local market then learn how to prepare regional dishes and create elegant presentations for three courses. The Kitchen Table is a one-of-a-kind optional opportunity to shop, cook and eat with the masters.

Bars and Lounges

Explorer Lounge

Inspired by the trade routes of Vikings, the Explorers’ Lounge is the ideal place for guests to share their discoveries over an aquavit or a craft beer while sampling fine Scandinavian fare. Central to the Explorers’ Lounge is Mamsen’s, a casual gourmet deli inspired by Norwegian cuisine, from smoked salmon to open-faced sandwiches and locally sourced charcuterie and cheeses. The daily “Waffle Hour” provides mouth-watering samples of the beloved treat.


 
The Viking Living Room
  • The ideal setting for relaxation and conversation, The Viking Living Room draws guests together. Spacious seating, melodic piano tunes, live entertainment and planned activities foster rich camaraderie. And its well-curated Viking Library informs even the best-read traveler. Adorned with nautical touches from Viking days, including the clinker-built bar inspired by ancient longships, it is the most inspired living room at sea.

The Viking Living Room
 
Viking Bar

Enjoy a cocktail in the Viking Bar, which is located on the ground floor of the atrium.


 
Wintergarden

When you yearn for serenity, there is no better place on ship than a visit to the Wintergarden. This charming, airy space around the main pool is perfect for relaxing in clean, uncluttered Scandinavian-designed environment. Even here, our focus is on enrichment, as this is the place to witness a tea ceremony, or indulge in an afternoon tea service, complete with hand-selected teas, finger sandwiches and pastries.


Wintergarden
 

Pools

Main Pool

The heated Main Pool and hot tub provide a calming oasis in any weather. The retractable roof allows for any-time swims and soaks.

A haven for relaxation, it’s a fun spot to socialize during a day at sea. It’s been thoughtfully designed for lap swims, leisurely wading or enjoying a drink poolside.

By night, it’s a magical setting for star gazing and for viewing our “Movies under the Stars.”


Main Pool
 
The Infinity Pool

The Infinity Pool, one of the first of its kind at sea, gives you a sense of swimming in the heart of your destination. Its glass backing is infused with the spirit of exploration.

This relaxing setting also offers an inviting hot tub. Relax on the teak deck, which transforms into the Aquavit Terrace in the evening.

The pool’s shimmering surface lends a peaceful backdrop to this al fresco dining option.

The Atrium

Spa

The Spa

Viking Cruises also reinvented the spa experience; drawing upon the holistic wellness philosophy of Nordic culture. To stimulate your circulatory system visit our snow grotto where snowflakes gently descend from the ceiling through chilled air, then invigorate yourself in the sauna, following a centuries-old Nordic tradition.


The Spa
 

Theatre

The Theatre

The Theater, features live performances that bring you closer to the culture of our destinations. Sometimes, the destination connects you to exists solely in the realm of an otherworldly theatrical journey, as is the case with beautifully themed shows.

The curtains of destinations with cinema in two movie theaters, which show first-run films you have not yet seen as well as destination-driven cinema such as "Room with A View," "Roman Holiday," or "Skyfall." And because the intellect also needs to be stimulated, our theaters will always be buzzing with fresh, new insights from our port talks and onboard lectures that feature the history, art, and culture of our destinations. And to explore the world in comfort, Viking Cruises are in favor of soft and spacious sofa seating.

An additional $50 per person cancellation fee applies to all hotel cancellations and flight cancellations. All fly/cruise packages are based on the best available flight and hotel at time of pricing and while we may not be able to get the exact airline or hotel we will book a similar acceptable option. Flight packages will all include a free checked baggage allowance and meals.

Onboard Credits

On selected departures we will offer you onboard credits & these may not be combinable with all cabin categories and promotions. We will send you through a confirmation which will confirm if the onboard credit is available against your booking. Making changes to your reservation could result in any onboard credits being removed. Once you have embarked the ship, the onboard credit will be applied to your onboard account to use towards any onboard purchases. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time.

'Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Inside, Outside, Balcony) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated at the cruise lines discretion and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, the cruise line may (at their discretion) upgrade your stateroom to a higher classed category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category you decide to book at the time of the cruise including obstructed view cabins.
If travelling with Family and Friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you not to book on a Guarantee.
We cannot guarantee your cabins will be assigned near one another, on the same deck, same side or forward/aft on the ship nor accept any requests.

Complimentary Upgrades

Depending on any last minute availability the cruise lines will automatically upgrade cabins to higher categories. The upgrades can place you towards the front of the ship, midships or at the back of the ship and not necessarily on a higher deck level (i.e.: Insides Deck 10 may be upgraded to Ocean view Deck 5). As the cruise lines cannot upgrade every booking, you should book a category in which you are happy to sail. Once the upgrade has been assigned, should you dislike the cabin location we are unable to accept any changes or requests and cannot be reversed.
If travelling with family and friends where you require cabins to be near one another we strongly recommend for you to decline the upgrades. The cruise line do not guarantee all of the cabins will be upgraded, or that they will be upgraded near one another.

Future Cruise Credits

While we are happy to apply your Future Cruise Credits from the cruiselines to your booking with us, this may affect your online discounted pricing. We will still do our best to provide competitive pricing based on the discount we can offer on the new cruise fare once the future cruise credits have been applied to your booking. Please note if Future Cruise Credits are applied after your deposit has been paid may affect your final balance.

Revisions/Changes
Once a cruise booking has been accepted and a deposit paid, all changes are subject to a $30 charge per change. See prior section under Cancellation Policy for additional details on situations which are classified as cancellations rather than changes.

Documents
Documents will be issued approximately 3 weeks prior to departure. All early document requests will be charged a $25 early processing fee. All guests are required to fill out a Passenger Information Form (PIF) within seven (7) days of making the booking. PIF can be found online at www.vikingrivercruises.com.au/pif/index.aspx

Transfers
When you purchase international airfares from Viking Cruises, airport transfers are included in your air cost if air arrival and departure dates coincide with the first and the last day and destination of the cruise/tour itinerary. If guests arrive and depart on different dates to these or have independently arranged flights, then airport transfers are not included. There is no cash refund for unused airport transfers. Guests who are not arriving or departing the destination on the first and/or the last date of the cruise/tour itinerary or who have independently arranged flights will have to make their own way to the hotel/vessel at their own expense.

Travel Documentation/Visas
Passports, visas, vaccinations and any other travel documentation are your sole responsibility. All guests must have passports valid for six months following disembarkation and necessary visas when boarding. Guests are advised to check with their travel agent or the Australian or New Zealand Consulate Service to determine which documents they must obtain. If incorrect documents are obtained, guests will be unable to participate in particular shore excursions and may be denied boarding and/or entry into certain countries. Note: Due to airline security measures, your passport name must match your airline ticket name or you may be denied boarding. Viking Cruises accepts no responsibility for obtaining required visas or for advising guests of passport, visa or other immigration requirements.

Travel Insurance
Viking Cruises strongly recommends that you obtain the appropriate travel insurance when you pay the deposit on your booking to cover any unforeseen circumstances that may occur before or during any cruise or associated travel. If you do not purchase travel insurance you may not be able to recover any charges associated with the cancellation or unforeseen circumstances.

Health
You must ensure you are aware of any health requirements for your travel and ensure that you carry all necessary vaccination documentation. Guests are advised to check with their doctor or travel agent to determine if any vaccinations or health documents are required.

Children/Minors
Due to the nature of our cruise itineraries, Viking Cruises does not maintain facilities or services for children aboard river cruise vessels. On all cruises and cruise journeys, minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied and share a stateroom with a parent, legal guardian or other responsible adult over the age of 21. We reserve the right to limit the number of minors under the age of 18 years on board.

Disabled Guests
You must report any disability requiring special attention while on your Viking Cruises itinerary to Viking at the time the reservation is made. All vessels and motorcoaches are equipped to European standards. Most transportation services, including the vessels and motorcoaches, are not equipped with elevators or wheelchair ramps. Viking will make reasonable attempts to accommodate the special needs of disabled travelers, but is not responsible in the event it is unable to do so nor is it responsible for any denial of services by vessel operators, air carriers, hotels, restaurants or other independent suppliers. We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance to a holiday participant for walking, dining, getting on and off vessels, motorcoaches and other vehicles, or other personal needs. A qualified and physically able companion must accompany travelers who need such assistance and must assume full responsibility for their well-being. The guest assumes the full risk of use and of any prohibitions imposed by vendors. Motorized scooters are not typically suited on international cruises and cannot be accommodated.

Diets
Please advise the Uniworld reservation agent of specific dietary considerations and we will do our best to accommodate your request. Please also indicate your needs when you complete the Passenger Information Form.
