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

We thought we would write you and about our trip on the Viking Orion to Alaska (Booking 6319076). Our trip was everything we could hope for on the ship. Our room was wonderful with a of view of each port. The services of your staff were beyond anything we could wish for. Plus, the food was a 4 star plus. We even made friends along the way, which we hope will continue in the coming years. This ...

The ship and cabin were just as beautiful as marketed. Everything was clean and wonderfully maintained. The entertainment was very good. The facilities such as the spa and ice grotto are not to be missed. The housekeeping staff couldn’t have been more wonderful and attentive. In fact, all the staff were very friendly and professional. But…the staff, especially in the main buffet, ...

Always on our wish list to see Alaska, and we were drawn to the small ships Viking offered. The Orion did not disappoint. Beautiful ship, nice and new. Big enough to have plenty to do and places to go but small enough to enjoy without getting lost or having too many people on board. Dining was very good, whether it was One World Cafe or the main dining room. Manfredi's was tasty, could have ...

My husband and I have been to Alaska 5 times on different cruise lines. It is hard to give a bad review when the Alaska experience is so great, grand, and scenic. This boat had problems from the get go. Embarkation was delayed and we were told 3:30 so that was fine. We took late checkout at the hotel. When we got to Canada Place it was busy and unorganized. . The hospitality room at the ...

WORST CRUISE EVER - AND MOST EXPENSIVE

I chose Viking because it was the favorite cruise line of the well-traveled (40 cruises) couple I traveled with to Alaska. By day five, the couple said the Viking Orien Alaska trip was their worst cruise in 25 years. Chaotic and stressful does not begin to describe my experience. The night before my first excursion - the Deadliest Catch - I received a letter that Deadliest Catch was ...

Alaska - Started rough but smoothed out

I am a Viking Oceans person. I love the serene nature of the ships and the maturity of the passengers. The ship is spotlessly clean and their employees are indefatigably cheerful. I won't go on another cruise line. This cruise started out rough when we heard (ahead of time) that we couldn't board until 5:30 due to port issues in Vancouver. Viking took care of us but it did mean that over ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to do Alaska and liked what we were hearing about Viking. Focus is on the destination and not a resort experience which is fine with us. Adults only, superb dining, junior suite was plenty large and very comfortable, service was always impeccable. While not having the big theatrical production on board, the entertainment was top notch and a great way to ...

Excellent trip, accommodations were great and the dining was exceptional. The Chef's Table and Manfredi's dinners were excellent; the dinners at the Restaurant were very good. Having real good weather during the cruise was a bonus - we were very fortunate to take in all of the great views. The excursions were a mixed bag, in the sense that some expectations were not met. For example, we were ...

Overall the cruise was very nice. As usual, nice rooms with a great balcony, great daily room service, food was excellent, crew was very friendly and accommodating, and the Port Talks were very informative. Viking always goes "the extra mile" to make sure every detail is covered and that we were always kept informed. The daily news put in our rooms each evening for the following daily activities ...
