Wonderful cruise & awesome experience
"Guest Services really worked with us for our disembarkation as we had a long time between leaving the ship and our plane travel time, offering us a place to store our luggage or to stay at a lounge.We dropped off our luggage and then went on a tour of Bali on our own in the afternoon as the ship was not leaving port until 11pm...."Read More

Great Ship; disappointing itinerary.

The Orion is a wonderful ship, and well-crewed. For the ship and crew I would give 4.5+ stars. I could not recommend this itinerary however, my 3rd experience with Viking. Ports of Call were mostly ugly industrial shipping harbors, and even the paid shore excursions seemed to offer little for the effort and discomfort involved being ashore. Those shore trips seemed as carefully managed as was ...

This was the best cruise of our life. Viking really does everything right: All-inclusive pricing, almost no extras (some excursions are extra), absolutely delicious food every meal, almost no sense of crowding, fantastic destinations. We enjoyed every single day. Got to see some bucket-list sites, notably Borobudur, the largest Buddhist monument on Earth. Staff were exceedingly helpful and ...

We chose this cruise because we have wanted to see Australia and New Zealand and this cruise had a lot of stops in both countries. Another plus was having the opportunity to unpack once and having a home base to keep coming back to vs a land tour where you live out of your suitcase moving every day or two. Those were the top 2 important criteria. Embarkation was very easy, especially since ...

I love traveling. This particular Viking Ocean Cruise was my first. When I travel, top priority is food, then comfort, then quality of excursions, amenities and lastly all that was promised to me was fulfilled. I chose Viking because it had the best reputation for food quality and because there would be no kids on the ship. No loud screaming babies as I chose this to get a break from whiny ...

First let me start by saying I have cruised hundreds of days with a number of cruise lines, including Celebrity, Royal Carribean, Princess, Norwegian and hold status on many of these lines. I am an avid traveler both by land and sea and have had nothing but positive experiences. Last fall my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, we had so wanted to do a Riverboat cruise We left ...

The worst food experience and shore excursions on a cruise

After sailing on Viking Orion during Oct 2022 and providing feedback, along with many other Australian passengers, one would consider that it would be acted upon. However, much to my disappointment this has not been the case. Australians love their coffee but on Viking Orion it is awful. From day one the coffee beans appear to be old without any taste. Even a double or triple shot fails to ...

3 ocean and five river Viking crises. Choise this tour as it had a discounted fare and started in Bali where our son and grandchildren live. Disjointed ports, Java consisted of bus tour to store fronts and ended at a commercial mall. Thailand island was beautiful. Four days in Viet Nam was too much, must have fit a Viking requirement. Singapore was beautiful. 6 hour rickshaw tour in Saigon ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

After we canceled a prior cruise due to Covid, we had a large credit with Viking. To our surprise, the credit must be used on only one single cruise - not applied to multiple cruises. Since the Viking Komodo Australia cruise included the Great Barrier Reef, we chose this cruise despite the half way around the world journey. We booked a PV (premium veranda) cabin that included a daily stocked ...

My husband and I were onboard Viking Orion last November, starting from Bali (Indonesia), ending in Sydney (Australia). Going to Australia was never on our agenda because it was just too far from our home in New York. But Viking had a Flash Sale that included free airfare and free beverage package -- it was too good a deal to pass! We knew this kind of sale usually means limited stateroom ...

First time out of the USA since Covid and we picked to go to Bali and Australia--Big Mistake. We paid Viking extra to book our airline tickets (business class) and were only given 40 minutes to change planes at DFW from the domestic terminal to the international travel. Anyone who travels through DFW knows it's one of the most congested airports in the US. We arrived at Qatar airlines 15 ...
