Are free drinks available onboard Viking Ocean cruises?

Viking Ocean Cruises serves complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; and a complimentary glass of sparkling wine is offered on embarkation day. In addition, passengers booked in Penthouse Veranda and higher-category cabins receive a complimentary welcome bottle of Champagne and also have access to their in-room mini-bar, which is stocked and replenished -- for free, once daily -- with alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.
