Viking Ocean Cruises Restaurant Guide with Menus
This buffet-style restaurant located on deck 7 aft serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a open and casual atmosphere. With a wide array of international flavors, you can choose your favorites from the deli, pasta station, sushi bar, and more. This venue also offers coffee and tea 24 hours a day. A unique aspect of this restaurant is the open-kitchen.
Located in the Explorer’s Lounge on deck 7 forward, this Scandinavian deli serves up breakfast pastries, open-faced sandwiches, and the ever popular waffles. This is the go-to spot for a snack or a light meal while lounging in this comfy venue. Further, this namesake deli features original recipes from Viking founder Torstein Hagen’s mother.
Located outside of the World Cafe, this al fresco seating area allows you to dine in comfort while you admire the views. Inspired by the outdoor area on the line’s river ships, the destination is your backdrop while you lounge around the infinity pool or snack on some treats from the buffet.
Adjacent to the main pool, the Wintergarden is known for its afternoon tea and snacks. Kick back, socialize with some new friends, and enjoy treats like finger sandwiches and scones along with a wide selection of tea. This afternoon treat is accompanied by classical music from resident musicians and panoramic views. This is the perfect spot to relax after returning from a day of sightseeing.
The Pool Grill is your poolside venue serving up classic favorites like hamburgers, hot dogs, and fries for you to enjoy while lounging by the pool. These items are all cooked to order and are available for lunch or a mid-afternoon snack. There is also a small salad bar and a condiments bar for you to customize your order even further.
Viking Cruises offers complimentary room service 24 hours a day on all ocean ships. An extensive room service menu is available around the clock. So, if you want to enjoy breakfast in bed, a private dinner for two on the balcony, or need some late night munchies, you can order room service at no additional costs.
