Loved the ship and the quality of service!

We selected this ship and its itinerary as we wanted to visit this part of the world and this cruise fit our schedule. I particularly wanted to see Barcelona and return to Monte Carlo. This brand new ship, the Viking Orion, was beautiful. I loved the design and openness of the ship and the various touches of technology. Food was first rate, and all of the staff were incredibly friendly and ...

Orion was immaculate, a new ship and the crew was together just two months prior to our sailing; so in essence, everyone was "new" onboard. In true Viking fashion, everything went very smoothly (for us). We essentially sailed what's now called Mediterranean Odyssey (Barcelona to Venice). Our cruise was somehow overbooked, so the ship seemed more crowded than usual, full capacity I'm sure. ...

I choose this ocean liner as I have heard all good things, when booking I had excellent service. And through out the whole process it was incredible. We will never use any other ocean liner than the Viking we loved it far above our expectations!! The staff was helpful every time, food incredible and the staff their we’re superior. The food everywhere on the boat was increadible, fresh and ...

Viking spoiled us for other cruises

First, we, like many others on the ship, did not realize that the itinerary could be extended to 14 days and we disembarked at Civitavecchia. The embarkation in Barcelona was somehow affected by the local taxi strike, causing us to sit on a bus (thankfully, air-conditioned) in the port for an hour rather than a lounge at the World Trade Center. Because the Viking Gaudi tour was already sold out, ...

Viking is First Class!

Viking was our first and only choice for an ocean cruise. The Viking Orion is a smaller ship with only 930 passengers (a huge selling point for us). We did a 15 Day Grand European river cruise two years prior so we knew what level of service to expect. They did not disappoint! First class again in every way! We were welcomed at the Barcelona World Trade Centre by the Viking staff with ...

Viking Orion Iconic Mediterranean Cruise

This was an excellent cruise line. One of the outstanding features is that it is really an adults only cruise. I have nothing against children but it's not relaxing when you have to listen to whiny children on a cruise you've worked so hard to be able to pay for. Time and place, etc. It was educational as well. Shore excursions offerings were spectacular and educational. The guides ...

I have been on many many cruises in my life, but this Viking cruise was the absolute best. I have to say it’s spoiled me for amy other cruise line. The ship was gorgeous, but in a very classy way. No “Vegas type “ atmosphere. Just clean well thought out architecture. The service on Viking is outstanding. Cruise staff remembered my name every time and also remembered my drink order. The buffet ...

Excellent service on a previous river cruise allowed us to look forward to this ocean cruise with much happy anticipation. Our pre-cruise stay in Madrid was wonderful. Our hotel was near the public transportation line and we had no trouble traveling throughout the beautiful city. We spent two days at the Prado and surrounding area, and never tired of walking around the town. The bullet train ...

Better than I expected for my first cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my very first cruise experience. And While I thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the food, the service, the amenities, the decor, I had a difficult time understanding why the entertainment was so lacking. Starting with the complimentary tours-some of the guides were quite lackluster and not attentive to the group in terms of their need to maybe slow down or knowing whether or not everyone ...

We chose Viking for our first cruise ever due to hearing very good things about the service, ship, food and excursions. We were not disappointed! Our friends who cruise tell us that we will NOT enjoy cruising with any other cruise line. We found the food very good, enjoyed room service breakfast to allow us a little extra time to get ready for our excursions. We enjoyed that the ship did not feel ...
