Viking Orion Cruise Review by NorthCarolinaPam

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: undefined

Have done Viking Ocean before and realized that this was the first year that they were doing the Alaska route. We were so impressed with our previous experience, we wanted to try them again. The Viking Orion is a beautiful ship and the staff keep it looking brand new every day. We particularly enjoyed the various dining options - the World Cafe, The Restaurant and the pool side cafe. Each has its own ambience and type of service, but each is equal in quality and service. We also enjoyed a session in the planetarium which is new for Viking Ocean. Something different that we enjoyed. Spent several sessions in the Spa and had wonderful treatments. Felt like new people when we left. We spaced them between the more demanding excursion days so that we would be relaxed after those days. Treatments were professional and awesome. Thought the overall experience was wonderful! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Cabin Review

Cabin Veranda 3082

Same layout as the higher end verandas such as the Deluxe but all in all, we did not miss any amenities that we were expecting.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Wonderful experience. Saw three humpback whales breach at the same time!

Wildlife Tour

Went bear watching but didn't see any. The salmon were not running so the bears were sleeping!

River Rafting/Eagle Preserve

Saw bald eagles everywhere! Flying, in their nests, fishing and meandering along the river bank.

Wildlife Tour

Raptor center was impressive and the bear sanctuary was excellent as well. Will be opening a new visitors center soon - if not already opened.

Misty Fjords Wilderness Cruise

Wonderful scenery except the time it took to reach the Misty Fjords. Probably should have done the FLightseeing excursion in stead.
