We cruised from Hong Kong to Bangkok. The ship (Viking Orion) is fabulous, the ports are quite a mix, and the passengers are generally not very nice people. We enjoyed the ship, especially the Explorer's Dome and the gym/spa. The food and entertainment/ cultural series were mostly excellent. We especially enjoyed the Chef's Table, Manfredi's is also excellent. In this region of the ...

We chose Viking Ocean Cruise for this trip because we previously cruised with them and trusted we would receive the same amazing cruise experience. Below is a summary of our overall experience: Ship and cabin: 5 stars! Beautiful ship and cabin. Our only complaint was having to endure the smoke at the Word Cafe Restaurant on our entire 2- weeks trip due to broken ventilation fans. ...

I went on this trip to get a sense of SE Asia first hand. We have been on many Viking ocean and River cruises, so the ship, cuisine, level of service and accommodation and amenities were as usual -excellent. Our required VISA expenses $350 per person for short stops in Vietnam and Cambodia were a unpleasant experience. We had to send in our passports to a third party and pray they came back ...

Highly Recommend Anwar Wat in Siam Reap! This part of the trip was a four day post cruise land tour. Accommodations, excursions and guide were all excellent and highly recommend. Ship is beautiful and food was delicious at every one of the dining venues. The spa was clean and the snow grotto was a very “cool” experience! Entertainment shows in the main theater was what you’d expect on a ...

We had taken several trips to Europe and felt that we wanted to experience the Asian culture for a change. The cruise allowed us that experience. The ship provided us with very comfortable living quarters while learning on the several shore excursions we took. We began in Hong Kong with a brief tour of our own and then took a provided tour which was an excellent overview of the city. The ...

Overall this was a great cruise. We learned a lot about Asian culture in all of the ports. We were shocked at the pollution and wondered why Viking did not provide masks for those who wanted them as we went ashore. For the most part the excursions, both included and those we paid for were enjoyable. We do think Viking could do a better job with the excursion descriptions. For instance, we thought ...

We went on this cruise because of the itinerary. Had not been to Hong Kong or Japan. We booked this cruise onboard our last ocean cruise over a year ago. We picked the stateroom we wanted (midships). Little did we know that choosing a lower level cabin we would not have all the rights of people who booked higher levels. For example when it came my turn to book the bullet train it was sold ...

Far Eastern Horizons: Great ship, crew, and food, but relatively poor excursions

We were traveling with some friends, and were interested in the locations visited. The ship and crew were fantastic. We enjoyed the food, which we felt was diverse and of high quality. However, we were not happy with the excursions. In general, they were superficial, lacking detail in the locations visited. The local guides often had difficulties speaking the English language. These comments ...

We decided to do another Viking Cruise to celebrate my husband's retirement. He chose a cruise from Hong Kong to Tokyo with a 2 day extension in Hong Kong before our cruise began. Viking offered 2 Hong Kong included tours, one from the hotel and one from the ship. Both were very informative. We were also given information and opportunities to explore on our own, where to eat, the evening laser ...

Itinerary was perfect for us with concentration on Japanese ports. We wanted to sail with Viking since we only have booked with Oceania. Service is outstanding with Viking. As for restaurants, the Chef’s Table specialty is fantastic. Wine pairings are very well done. Manfredi’s is way off track attempting to represent Italian cuisine. The food is just not good regardless of whatever ...
