Our trip started with the 3 day Viking pre-excursion tour of Tuscany, Florence, and Siena. The 800 year old villa where we stayed was extraordinary! The food and tours were fantastic and embarkation was seamless. The Orion is a beautiful ship with so much to offer. We attended 2 different planetarium shows, live music shows in in the theater, a movie under the stars, and enjoyed tea time on several occasions. Staff kept our room emaculately clean and well supplied. We really enjoyed the balcony. The food was outstanding with excellent variety and good service. Loved the espresso/latte machines. The excursions were the highlight of the trip. We were glad we booked our choices early. The ports and historic sites were once-in-a-lifetime destinations. The tour guides were knowledgeable, the transportation (both by land and sea) was safe and comfortable. Disembarkation was well-organized and easy. We plan to schedule another Viking cruise soon.
Emaculately clean. Housekeeping was professional. Towels and toiletries were kept well supplied.
