Beautiful ship, bad excursions

Viking Orion Cruise Review by janicet58

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: Asia

Signed up for the great itinerary. I did thorough research of each port prior to embarkation. The excursions were poorly organized. Far to many people on each excursion. Much lost time at each port. Limited information onboard about excursions. Excursion director was hard to understand.

Prior to this trip, I have now been on 4 ocean cruises and 3 river cruises. The Cruise director of this ship was the worst of the seven. Was silly and tried to be funny.

Embarkation and disembarkation was well organized. Room were exceptional as well as the service of steward. Beautiful ship with lots of options for onboard experiences.

Food was very good but not exceptional. Service in dining room was exceptional. Wine stewards were knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful.

If you are booking a trip to eat and drink, this is it. If you are booking a trip to see the ports visited, this is not for you.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Veranda 4066

Cabin was spacious and cabin service were great.

Would make one comment regarding cabin - you should provide good water. The water provided did not taste good. Had to request bottled water.
