Venice and the Adriatic

Viking Orion Cruise Review by drmomoftwins

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean

It was our 25th Anniversary and we wanted something special. We had heard great reviews about Viking Cruises and they lived up to all of it. We stayed 4 days in Venice to visit relatives prior to the cruise. Embarkation and Disembarkation were VERY smooth. We did not wait like we have in the past on other cruise lines.

Ports and shore excursions were very good! We really enjoyed the fact we had extra time to do shopping or sightseeing on our own in most of the ports.

Our cabin was perfect! We loved the space and king size bed! The Orion was new in 2018 and you could tell! Clean and comfortable! It was very cozy to lie on the deck or in the Explorer's Lounges with cozy blankets and amazing views.

The staff really paid personal attention to us! Entertainment was good- band and Pablo but ended early.

The Viking Spa and Bathing experience was also amazing! However we really did not discover it until last couple days.

The welcome aboard with champagne and cool cloths was very refreshing especially since the temperatures were in the 90's!
