Viking Orion Cruise Review by cayman5433

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: Asia

This itinerary was very poorly designed. Long 2-3 hour bus rides on excursions, through Indonesia slums and hot old buses. Stayed two days in Jataka, nothing to see but cheap for Viking to dock, Singapore was beautiful, we stayed 7 hours. The entire trip was promoted as as ending in Bali. We arrived at 6:00 pm, had to tender in, they overloaded tenders with to many people at 95 degree for a 30 minute ride each way, should of been docked. Trip ended next day at 8:00 am, so basically no Bali.

Had an 2 room suite, large, nice bathroom, good king mattress, the living room was very poorly furnished on a new 2018 boat. Furniture was extremely modern made for 100 lb midgets, couch was 6" off floor and small, poorly designed, great 60" TV with movies and we sat on floor and no one cared. Suites get no special amenities like on Celebrity or Royal with special show seating reservations or dinner reservations. Food was good, not excellent, service varied a lot from fast and efficient to slow.

Had on board ship credits from previous river cruise, would not honor on account only could use for feature cruises. Not ran nearly as well as River Cruises.

Deferentially, not a luxury cruise, just a mini Carnival boat without a casino.

Cabin Review

Suites are large, nice mini bar and free laundry. Furniture in living room terrible, brought deck lounges inside to sit on. Interior furniture build for midgets.
