Viking Orion Cruise Review by rswood00

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

The cruise ship was up to Viking normal high standards.

The cabin was well prepared and continually tidied and readied..the cabin service usually forgot we didn`t wanted our beds turned back etc but minor point.

We were very fortunate with some excellent weather throughout the voyage.

The atmosphere on board was very relaxed throughout.

The food was excellent and we much prefer the more relaxed format in the self service area as standards are not compromised at all.

Mrs Wood`s hair appointment was average.

Some of the included excursions were disappointing and the game needs to be upped here as we felt this was part of pushing you to pay for the far better extras ones.One of them just dropped us off in town to do our own thing.Juneau excursion was unnecessarily rushed and we had little time to enjoy the glacier facilities etc.Our extra whale watching

at Icy strait Point was very good indeed.

The lectures and talks were generally very good and the delivery was interesting and relaxed with most but not all of them.Kathy Slamp we found the best of them.
