My wife and I were outside of the Valdez Museum and caught both our ship Orion and the snow-capped mountain in the background.

My sister & husband cruise Viking all of the time, both river and oceanic. Other friends have used Viking and were impressed. We chose the Orion Cruise thru the Panama Canal because it was part of our bucket list. Our original cruise thru France was cancelled because of COVID. We will never cruise anyone but Viking. Getting to the Orion proved problematic BUT once on board We had no ...

This is only our 3rd cruise, the previous 2 were with Celebrity (Antarctica and St Petersburg) both of which were very enjoyable but I would certainly choose Viking over Celebrity in the future. Embarkation was very easy no big queues and our stateroom (5110) was ready soon after. We loved the position of this (aft) and it was great for the Panama Canal transit. Our room stewards were ...

We chose the Orion for the Panama Canal itinerary, especially since it sailed from Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles. We enjoyed the historical lectures and the multiple Planetarium events, as well as the Canal Locks informative step by step discussion. The ship was well-appointed with very comfortable seating throughout the ship. Two smallish pools, with one being an infinity pool with the other ...

Special Interest in Panama Canal AND great prior experiences on Viking ocean and river cruises! Particularly Happy with all the entertainment and learning experiences on board! Excellent dining and mostly free drinks were much appreciated! As always on Viking we’re able to meet many fellow travelers and make friends with them! We have already made arrangements to do an Antarctica trip with Viking ...

We chose this cruise because it encompassed both my husband's bucket list of the Komodo Dragons on Komodo Island and my bucket list of snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. All the other stops were the cherries on the sundae. Komodo Island was rough, dry and dusty. It was exactly what we were told to expect. We were able to observe five of the dragons at a watering hole. We, also, saw a couple ...

Chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Embarkation was kind of chaotic but the disembarkation was very smooth. Viking does not administratively handle single people well. I guest this is not their market. However, more and more people are widowed and traveling alone. Cabin and service was excellent; entertainment and activities were on the low side; dining was good as was expected; ...

Location---never been to Australia. Had a great experience before on a Viking cruise. Dining is awesome. Love the Italian option, but spread it around with main dining room and Chef's Table. Bars really fun. Cabin amazing, but common areas so appealing that we really did not need the size cabin we took. Entertainment was awesome on some nights and mediocre on others. The Viking singers were ...

We choose this cruise because of the pricing and the inclusion of the flight in the price. It was a trip of lifetime made within our reach. Also, Viking is a “no” children cruise line something we prefer. The ship is beautiful (cabin sufficient, clean and comfortable. Loved the sunrise in Sydney from our balcony), food very good (we loved Manfredi’s), shows “cruise ship” entertainment, crew ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 80s

The cruise hit the locations I wanted to visit. Super itinerary, excellent food and service. The alternative gourmet selections, especially the Chefs Table, were excellent. Shipboard internet access was reliable. Great lectures, especially historic perspectives, scientific topics and educational lectures. The crew was reliable and friendly, and most helpful in assisting with excursions, dining ...

Our expectations of Viking have gotten too high?

We have been in love with Viking since our first River Cruise! We've been on 3 Ocean Cruises since. However, our last experience aboard Orion was not up to our expectations: The accommodations at both our pre- and post-tours were beautiful! What we couldn't figure out was why there was such a problem going from the Hotel to the ship. It seemed to be too many people and not enough busses. Why ...
