Viking Line’s traditional Christmas buffet makes room for many delicious vegetarian options

This year, Viking Line's Christmas buffet includes both traditional delicacies and a wide range of vegetarian dishes. The menu was planned by the Swedish Culinary Team together with Viking Line’s own top chefs. For the first time, there will also be a holiday buffet table planned especially for children. The Christmas buffet will be served on Viking Line ships from 16 November until 26 December 2018.

High quality food and flavourful treats play an increasingly important role when selecting cruises, particularly around the holiday season. Often, the entire family comes on the cruise, and it’s important to Viking Line to provide menus that are also appealing to its youngest passengers. This year, for the first time, Viking Line has designed a special holiday buffet table especially for children. Its bright colours and fun presentation will inspire children to try out a whole range of clever vegetarian options. The children’s holiday menu was planned by Sweden’s Junior Culinary Team.

“This year, in particular, we have really tried to focus on lighter and fresher Nordic flavours. Our holiday menu includes all the familiar favourites, of course, from pickled herring to casseroles and ham, but we have also added vegetarian and vegan options that are well-suited to the holiday spread,” says Janne Lindholm, Restaurant Manager for Viking Line.

The new Viking Line holiday buffet will offer all the traditional dishes along with, for example, vegan pickled “herring”, roasted celeriac, mushroom and root vegetable gratin, long pepper and orange boiled carrot and vegan desserts. The holiday menu was created jointly by the Swedish Culinary Team together with Viking Line’s own top chefs.

Our delicious Christmas buffet is available aboard Viking Line cruise ships from 16 November (20 November on M/S Cinderella) until 26 December.
