  3. Viking Orion
We chose this cruise because we wanted to visit the destinations of Venice, Croatia and Greece and explore the Adriatic region. Every detail of this trip exceeded our expectations. Our cabin , the penthouse veranda, was beautiful and spotlessly clean. Food onboard was excellent and plentiful and the wait staff is superb . We met so many wonderful young people from many nations working together to meet our every need. Shore excursions were well planned and the tour guides were so, so good and ready to answer any question and shared from their personal experiences in their homelands. The Orion was only 2 months old when we sailed so it was sparklingly beautiful in every way. I cannot say enough that would do justice to our wonderful experience celebrating 40 years of marriage with the Viking family. This was our very first cruise ever and we are ready to “set sail” as soon as we can!

Amazing!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4017
Beautiful, well appointed cabin with a spacious bathroom well stocked and refreshed twice daily. Our cabin stewards were terrific in keeping our mini fridge full of all things we requested and were super friendly and took the time to explain everything to us concerning the room, including the coffee maker, vanity, pressing of clothing and even shoe shine services.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • City Tour
    Not our favorite guide as she was very confusing with directions and language. We were taken to the old town and given a lot of time to wander on our own and we did become disoriented and had to ask a local for help which he kindly obliged. I think we would have enjoyed the Jeep Tour more.

  • Olympia Archeological Tour
    Excellent tour and super guide. We saw the ruins at Olympia and our guide was very knowledgeable.The stadium took my breath away to imagine the games being held there and the energy of the competition was still in the air. Our guide was very pro-Greek and very anti-Roman which was funny and gave different spin on things. The archeological museum is excellent and should not be missed.

  • Montenegro Highlights
    After a terrifying hairpin ride up the mountain, we had the most beautiful view of the port of Kotor and Old Town. We went to a small mountain village and had a local beverage and snack before descending the mountain. Iva, our guide, was the best! Very funny and offered a lot of insight into life in Montenegro. We also visited the palace of the last king of Montenegro and had a walking tour of the Old Town. Again, very small and easy walking. Lots and lots of cats everywhere that politely posed for pictures.

  • City Tour
    Our guide was excellent, had a lot of personal insight and really knew the history of Diocletian’s palace. Very interesting, but a lot of walking which we did not mind, but older couples were having some difficulty keeping up.

  • Trogir Walking Tour
    In spite of a brief downpour, we had a great experience in the old town. Merchants were friendly and helpful, but have your kunas ready as they were not as willing to take euros here. It is a small enclosed area and we were given ample time to explore on our own and not be concerned about getting lost.

  • Gondola Ride
    The ride itself was all we anticipated and we loved seeing the sights by gondola. We were with an older couple and the gentleman had much difficulty getting in and out of the gondola and was not assisted in any way by the gondolier. The gondolier was not personable at all and shouted vulgar comments to the other gondoliers near us and said nothing to us. In spite of him, we really enjoyed the ride and got to experience another side of Venice.
