China has one of the world's great culinary traditions. Passengers will experience the joys of Chinese cuisine, expertly prepared with the highest quality fresh ingredients. Victoria's award-winning dining experience is reflective of China's evolving culinary landscape, with a fusion of western dishes.

Meals are served in a single-seating Dynasty Dining Room. Sumptuous western and Chinese buffets are offered at breakfast, lunch and dinner. An elegant Captain’s Farewell Banquet is served on the final night of the cruise.

In addition to the main Dynasty Dining Room, we have a separate dining room which offers buffet breakfast and lunch, and an a la carte menu at dinner. This separate dining room is available without additional charge to passengers pre-booking upgraded Executive Superior Cabins and Suites, or for a supplementary charge for passengers in Superior Cabins on other decks.

If you have special dietary requirements, please advise us of your needs at time of booking. Meal times will be posted in a daily events schedule distributed to each cabin. The legal drinking age on board Victoria Cruises vessels is 18 years old.

 Emmy Award-Winning Celebrity Chef Walter Staib

Victoria’s food already earns high marks from passengers, but we are always endeavoring to upgrade our dining. To introduce new dining concepts and menus, including additional western dishes and a la carte dining, Victoria hired award winning celebrity chef and hospitality consultant Walter Staib. With five decades of experience, Chef Staib is a leader in the field, and has advised many large hotel chains and created nearly five hundred restaurants globally. He authored the books Black Forest Cuisine and City Tavern - Recipes from the Birthplace of American Cuisine, which include recipes he introduced aboard Victoria’s ships. Chef Staib’s nationally-televised PBS cooking program, A Taste of History, has been honored with three Emmy Awards.
