Excellent First Viking Ocean Cruise in the Far East
"The overall experience with Viking Ocean Cruise was excellent. Having been on other ocean cruise lines, we appreciated the laid back but elegant atmosphere of Viking Orion. The service was also very good - everyone..."Read More

We loved the Viking River Cruises so wanted to try the ocean cruise and also wanted to see China. For the most part we were very pleased. The cabin and service were excellent. The food was good but not excellent. Their waffles were inedible. We tried the chef's table two times - both times the food was too spicy. Since there was a limited menu choice, we opted to skip eating there. ...

Japan has always been on my bucket list. And Viking provided a very comfortable way to do that. The cabins are spacious and provide you with everything you’ll need. There is a comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and a desk which encases a makeup area and mirror. All the amenities you’ll need from fresh water daily, a telephone, flat screen television and a very nice sitting area. In addition ...

Visit family in Japan and tour Japan at same time! This was a way to see the majority of the major sites in Japan in a 2 week period. The cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima were historical was very moving to experience. Tokyo was very interesting and the Imperial palace was excellent to see. The ship was emasculate and the service was exceptional! The food was very good and the diversity of eating ...

We thought it would be a great trip. This was our 3rd Viking cruise. The first two were very good. This cruise was extremely disappointing. The service was very poor in dining. Sometimes there were no dishes and you had to wait and the cafe wasn't even busy. Dirty dishes piled on the table not removed, lack of beverages served. Some of the employees were miserable; on the other hand some ...

First of all, this idiot company planned an itinerary which would have brought us to a Korean port on a national Korean Holliday, something that should have been known well in advance. Then after paying for the voyage and the refund deadline passing, they tell the paid up passengers that the only Korean port is cancelled because it falls on a Korean National Holliday. How was this not known in ...

We had sailed on Orion once before and knew it to be a lovely ship with excellent facilities, good food and thoughtful, attentive service. Seeing Japan was new to us and Orion offered a number of interesting stops. As always with Viking, the ship was immaculate, the facilities well designed and visually appealing and the staff extremely friendly, gracious and accommodating. The gym/workout area ...

This was our 14th cruise with Viking (9 river, 5 ocean). So, obviously, we have been very happy with them. We have come to expect beautiful ships and helpful polite staff and this trip certainly lived up to our expectations in those areas. Our cabin stewards and the waiters were hard working and cheerful. I love the sleek style of the ships. Our tour, "Far East Explorations" was actually 2 ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to Japan. We would have appreciated more lectures and information in depth about the places we visited. The excursions were satisfactory, but they were very crowded with 30 plus people on the bus and some of the guides were difficult to understand. Some of the excursions were quite expensive and the included excursions tended to be good except that ...

We had one of the best cabin attendants ever on Viking cruises. Lectures were not as good as previous cruises. Limited activities during sea days. Ongoing ship information by the captain very good considering typhoon in area. Embark and disembark very organized and quick. Music by individual piano, violin, and guitar very enjoyable late day and evening. Selected night entertainers very good. ...

This cruise, "Far Eastern Horizens", was chosen as a logical extension of "North Pacific Passage", from Vancouver to Tokyo, where Viking kindly upgraded us to a forward Explorer Suite. Because we booked (a fully paid for Explorer Suite this time) some time after booking "North Pacific Passage", it was necessary to move to that Suite, being 3095, sitting aft starboard for this second ...
