Sail Date: Nov 2021
Through the Panama Canal locks on the Viking Orion

This was one of our first cruises during the time of Covid. The safety protocols aboard the Orion were extraordinary—PCR tests every morning, crew constantly cleaning and sanitizing. We felt very safe.

This is a relatively new itinerary for Viking and we liked that it sailed from one U.S. port and ended in another.

The Orion was so comfortable and the service and food were great. It was so nice to be met by Viking representatives when we got off the plane in Fort Lauderdale. Viking makes cruising so easy. This was definitely a warm weather cruise. It was so nice when deck crew brought cold towels, and ice water or drinks to refresh ourselves while we lay by the pool. They take care of so many things. There were plenty of live music options aboard. We especially enjoyed the delightful cello/violin duo that played regularly in the evenings and during high tea. We’d sail on the Orion, or any of her sister ships anytime. We’re sold on Viking.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was great. The bed, pillows, and linens were all so comfortable. Everything worked (very effective and flexible climate control) and our cabin steward was quick and efficient. There was plenty of storage available as well.
