Fabulous Trip

Review for Viking Orion to Mediterranean

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

Rome was number one on my bucket list, and that wasn’t the only place in Italy I wanted to see. Many of my friends had been on various Viking Cruises including the first round the World on the Viking Sun. Heard nothing but excellent on all their trips. Everything went so smoothly for a first timer. Was concerned about airlines but things went ok going to Italy. Stuck in Venice airport ...

Although we had been to the start and stop sites before several times, the intermediate stops in the Adriatic were new to us and quite interesting. The Orion is a lovely ship...just a few weeks old at our sailing so everything was impeccable. The service was probably the best ever experienced on a cruise, which was surprising given the newness of the vessel and crew. We found the casual dining ...

A friend told me about Viking so I decided to try. It was our first visit to Europe so we thought this was a great way to sample countries. It was amazing! We added excursions at most of the ports and were not disappointed. The guides were professional. We felt safe at all times. On the ship, the staff always remembered us and greeted us with smiles, jokes, and friendly conversation. Our ...

We’ve always wanted to go on a cruise to Italy and this was the best one we could find for the dates we wanted. The cruise was excellent and the service was exceptional. The ship and cabins were exceptionally clean but this is a new ship for Viking. Our only complaint about the cruise is that some of the included excursions were bus tours of the cities which gave us few opportunities for ...

We lived Viking River Cruises so we thought we would try an ocean cruise. Traveling around the boot of Italy sounded like a great first Ocean Cruise. We heard Viking’s Ocean Cruises were No. 1 so we decided t go with it. Great decision!!! People were so nice, food was delicious, tours beautiful and the whole trip a wonderful experience. We highly recommend it to everyone we talk ...

We chose Viking because we have been on other cruise lines and didn’t like how crowded they were. The cruise itself was spectacular. The staff was attentive and friendly. The ship was clean and comfortable; not overcrowded. The food in the main restaurant was superb. By far the best restaurant on the ship is the main restaurant. We ate at the speciality restaurants as well but preferred the main ...

Viking knows it’s business and excels at it. The new ships are elegant and (as usual) meals, service and entertainment were all excellent. Our embarkation in Rome was noteworthy as we were greeted at the airport and driven to the ship in a singular car (not a bus). The restaurants were very nice, the food quality excellent and the staff friendly and respectful. We particularly liked ...

We had done two Viking River Cruises and wanted to experience a sea cruise. We were happy with our choice and the whole experience was wonderful including the food, the crew and the wonderful ship. We were impressed with the furnishings and the books were much appreciated as well as the extras such as blankets and cushions. We felt that we were very safe and cared for and that is important as ...

We began our trip with the extension in Tuscany, which was well worth both the time and money. Our Viking guide made it a very interesting and seamless time. The ship was very new, and the only problem was that the coffeemaker in our cabin was not working. No problem, as we loved having an American in the Living Room! The main dining room was excellent both for breakfast and for dinner. There ...

We traveled with our good friends from Wyoming and decided to try an ocean cruise following a great river cruise we had to France about 2 years prior to this trip. We were overall very happy with the entire cruise with very few exceptions. The ship was new so everything was wonderful from the cabins to the fitness area. We especially enjoyed the explorers lounge and the restaurants available ...
