Dining

On Viking Star, the restaurants are the perfect setting for your culinary discoveries, offering you choices from American classics and heart-healthy options to authentic regional delights to deepen your connection to your destinations. And since the ultimate "room" is the great outdoors, Viking Star offers more al fresco dining experiences than any ship at sea. Sample Venetian favorites while you cruise through the Venetian lagoon; delight in a Turkish kebab surrounded by the Bosphorus, or enjoy gravlax as you glide through the breathtaking fjords. Because part of your experience is dining in your destination-even when you’re on board.

Age Restrictions

Due to the nature of the cruise itineraries, Viking Cruises does not maintain facilities or services for children aboard cruise vessels.

The carrier reserves the right not to accept passengers who are in an advanced state of pregnancy either upon commencement of or at any time during the river or ocean cruise.
