On a Viking Ocean cruise, guests will be transported into a world of culture and education unlike any other cruise brand in the industry. At every turn Viking brings learning to the forefront, and this includes their food. Through the onboard dining, guests will be able to experience regions of the globe from Italy to Scandinavia. At the Kitchen Table, guests even have the opportunity to try their hand at cooking the cuisine of the region they are visiting as the chef masterfully teaches about the flavors and dishes of the cultures of that area of the world.


At Harr Travel, we have worked closely with Viking for a number of years, and know the ships and venues inside and out. We have put together a comprehensive guide on all the dining onboard the Viking Ocean ships, so you can book your next cruise with confidence knowing exactly what types of dining experiences you will have onboard.
