Sail Date: Jul 2019
Cabin:

From the beginning embarkation and personnel were great, this was our first Viking ocean cruise, we had two river cruises and another Portugal river cruise with Viking coming this summer 2020.

The ship Orion was spotless, the cabin steward was fantastic, always there and ready to serve our every request. The food was delicious and plentiful, the only concern I had was with the coffee service in the dining area, it was supposed to be fresh 24/7 but the first two mornings 5am they only had instant and expresso. I brought it to the attention of the supervisor and was remedied from then on and also received fresh coffee in our cabin the rest of the voyage.

The ports and excursions were spot on, Alaska is beautiful, a bit to many Glaziers and Totem poles but the wild life is plentiful.

Cabin Review

The cabin and steward were execellent.

Sitka

The culture is enlightening

When we boarded our ship all the personnel were wonderful, the overall service and accommodations were perfect. The only problem that arose was there was no fresh coffee in the dining room early AM[530] when I start my day. The dining room officer was immediately on it apologized and I received fresh coffee in my room promptly at 530 every morning thereafter, there was fresh coffee in the dining room at that time also. The variety of food was excellent and went with the theme of our voyage. I definitely recommend Viking.
