Honesty upfront...I did not choose this cruise. My 82 year old Dad did but ill health prevented him from going so Viking kindly allowed my Husband and I to substitute.

At 55, the passenger demographic (more like 75-85) was too old for us and the activity level for the included excursions was too sedate BUT, for older and/or less mobile people, this cruise would be perfect.

The ship is beautiful. I only have one criticism and that is that the flagship planetarium was out of action. Disappointing.

Cabin Review

Covered above but the cabin was lovely. Wanted for nothing. The Orion is an all verandah ship too.
