Viking does cruising right. Along with amazing guest services and comfort above all else, tours are included as is beer and wine during meal service. I’ve gushed about my excursion experiences from Kinderdijk to Cologne, and Passau to Budapest. After my first trip, I shared exactly what to expect on a Viking River Cruise. What I didn’t stress is just how great the food is on board. As you cruise through the various regions of Europe, Viking presents each region’s delicacies on a plate. This makes the Viking River Cruise meals apart of the experience, one that is made much more enjoyable not to mention delicious.
So with that in mind, I will share my foodie experience down the Danube and along the Rhine.
Behind the Velvet Curtain
Before we dig into these 30 Viking River Cruise meals, let’s see where the magic happens. If you are lucky enough to take a river cruise with Viking, don’t miss touring the kitchen. I highly recommend this. That way you will see how much is prepared in such a small space and it will make you appreciate the outcome that much more. On my Viking River cruises experience this opened my eyes and made the meals that much more tasty.
Viking River Cruise Meals – The Main Course
It is shocking the quality of food put out on these river cruise ships, even more so after touring the kitchen. Although there is always a set menu to pick from, my Viking highlights were the local dishes pulled from the port towns we visited. From spaetzle and pork hocks in Bavaria to a selection of Dutch cheeses outside of Amsterdam, these local touches made all the difference.
And don’t forget about dessert! I certainly didn’t. Although there is a walking track on the top deck, there is no gym onboard these Viking River Cruise ships. Keep that in mind when ordering dessert with every meal. Cleary, it is easier said than done…
