We have done four riverboat cruises with Viking and I liked the look of the Orion, fancied a Mediterranean cruise, so decided to try it.

The first day, we flew from our nearest airport, Leeds/Bradford, but had to change at Schiphol. After a long day, we arrived at the Orion after 6pm, the first of the “8 day cruise”. The boat was absolutely lovely and I have nothing but praise for the staff, our vegetarian food, our accommodation on board.

The entertainment, in a splendid theatre, was a disappointment. Very nice though all the staff were, we were not expecting them to be the usual stage acts. The last night, they brought in a flamenco group and that was the best, though only lasted about an hour. As the boat is smaller than most cruises offer (which was great) there was less to keep us entertained on an evening, so I think a little more could be offered, though perhaps Viking see themselves as a little too upmarket.

Cabin Review

The “stateroom” was well-equipped, spacious and brand new.

The furniture and fitting were of a very high quality and the bed very comfortable.

All rooms have private balconies.
