Magnificent ship, way below par food

Viking Orion Cruise Review by Mikebenesch

  • Destination: the Mediterranean

The ship was magnificent. The majority of the crew and staff were excellent. A few surly or inattentive waiters. Orion July 8 Rome to Barcelona

The big problem was the food at dinner. Our experience, as well as those dining around us. A few times the food was so salty it was inedible . Fish was frequently dry and overdone. When mentioned to wait staff, they said they were aware of the problems because so many guests had sent the food back .

Cabin attendants were great, accommodations good. Very elegant experience. All ruined by the poor quality of food in the dining rooms. Consistently poor across the three main seated venues. Particularly jarring in that the wait staff acknowledged the problem, and just shrugged it off.

Six of us cancelled our next viking oven cruise because of this experience. For the money, we can do better elsewhere.
