Viking Orion Cruise Review by FlaGirl13

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: Alaska

My second trip to Alaska, husband’s first, our first Viking cruise. Sailed out of Vancouver but had no time to explore the city. Seamless embarkation process. Staff was amazing all over the ship, room stewards perfect, dining attendants very attentive, even the chefs in the buffet would fix something extra on the spot. Cabin was very comfortable, bathroom great. So many gathering places and quiet areas to hang out. Only went to one evening show but we highly recommend the Explorer Dome, sign up for all 3 shows as soon as you board. The ports were all interesting, mostly did the included but did book two private ones. They had interesting speakers who presented talks on the history and people we were visiting. The debarkation process was much appreciated. We were put on a bus in Seward and driven to Anchorage where we had access to a meeting room at a Hilton until it was time for them to take us to the airport. We got some good discounts when we booked another cruise while on board, now just have to wait till 2021 to do the British Isles. Can’t wait to be back on a Viking ship!

Cabin Review

Cabin D6 3069

Comfortable cabin, enough storage area for us. Good size bathroom with a spacious shower and heated floors. Included toiletries were very nice. Cabin stewards were both excellent and were always attentive. Plenty of sockets and charging outlets. Free WiFi is good but only one device at a time.

Whale Watching

It was a jet boat that spent more time chasing around than staying put when we came across a whale.
