Viking Orion Cruise Review by Ricey
- Sail Date: September 2019
- Destination: Asia
We went to a few of the entertainment evenings and we enjoyed them very much.
Service everywhere was excellent.
We enjoyed the ports we visited with some better than others. There was not a lot to see In Ishigaki but we enjoyed Okinawa and had a great guide to show us the site of the Battle of Okinawa. Shanghai was amazing - we had such a good time there. We enjoyed Qingdao although it was very busy as it was the 70th Celebrations in China. Dalian was a lovely place and we had a great tour there. The standard of tourist guides in some ports was not very good. We had one day when we walked for a very long way before the guide realised we were walking tin the wrong direction.
Overall, this was a lovely cruise but we did have some issues with the time it took to get off the ship due to the Chinese immigration requirements, not Viking's fault though.

BeijingExcellent guide but it seemed like a very long way to go for a reasonably short time - we went to the Old Town in TianjinView All 91 Beijing Cruise Port Reviews

XiamenWe had a very inexperienced guide and the itinerary was not the best - too much free time in the very hot sun - some mix up with the busses which caused delaysView All 1 Xiamen Cruise Port Reviews
