  3. Viking Orion
We loved our Viking river cruises. On this ship, the corridors were kept so cold so that, returning from outside temps of 85 to 95 degrees, we felt chilled. the food was good but people did send food back. The last two nights, the ocean was rocky and we heard a tapping all night and the crew told us it was the way the ship was constructed! The arrangements for getting us back from Komodo Island were poorly done and two people fainted waiting in the hot sun for another tender. The staff was good otherwise, particularly the housekeeping crew. viking does have a large medical center with good equipment. they have an EKG machine and EMT equipment. The doctors and nurses were interested in your problems. the cabin was clean and checked twice a day. Enrichment lectures and the planetarium were very interesting. The beds were just okay as we are used to Oceania's wonderful mattresses. The noise all night long would keep me away from this ship.

Too cold and too noisy
