National Geographic Orion Cruise Review by 44cruises
- Sail Date: August 2016
- Destination: Baltic Sea
Before we went, we saw a discussion on whether wine would be included with dinner. It is and they are good ones. All beverages, including alcohol, were included.
Many of the ports are small towns on islands and the whole trip is more casual than many others we have taken.
The real test of a cruise is how they respond when something does not go right. My husband had a health problem which developed at about the halfway point of the trip. The ship's fine doctor decided that he need to be sent to a hospital for evaluation. We were evacuated to a town in Denmark. The crew took care of setting up everything including an ambulance at the dock and a hotel for me. Two days later, it was determined that we could return to the ship. We were welcomed back warmly.
The cabins are smaller than on many ships but are quite comfortable.
There is no entertainment of the usual kind and no casino. There are lectures instead on a variety of topics.
