Viking Orion Cruise Review by Lorrklev

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

We had been wanting to go to Alaska but we’re not sure Ocean cruising was for us. After our wonderful experience with a Viking River Cruise, we decided to try Viking Ocean. We were delighted with every aspect of the Orion, including and especially the service. Our cabin steward was efficient, friendly, professional and clearly followed through ASAP with every request.

The food was very good to fantastic; we enjoyed The Restaurant and also the casual World Cafe; my husband especially loved the sushi bar and the crab legs buffet.

We thoroughly enjoyed The Chefs Table twice andvwished we had had another night to enjoy Manfredi’s again.

Pea Soup is a special favorite for my husband and having a late snack after a chilly walk was a real treat.

Alaska and the scenery both from the ship and during excursions is a not- to-be- missed experience. We enjoyed whale watching, a Cultural Experience, Glacier viewing and visiting- every day was a wonderful adventure.

The Nordic Spa was another fantastic experience! So invigorating and also relaxing! We had massages on our anniversary and we each thought they were among our best ever.

We will certainly take another Viking Ocean Cruise. A wonderful experience!

Cabin Review

We absolutely loved our cabin! Standing outside bundled up with the sea wind whipping by watching the incredible scenery was fantastic! We enjoyed our sitting area, large bed and well thought out storage in the room and bathroom. One suggestion; some hooks on the side of the closet for hanging damp raincoats, bathing suits or hand laundry ( the clothesline in the shower is a good idea but things don’t dry so well with the shower door closed.
