Alaska & the Inside Passage with Land Excursion

Review for Viking Orion to Alaska

Excellent trip, accommodations were great and the dining was exceptional. The Chef's Table and Manfredi's dinners were excellent; the dinners at the Restaurant were very good. Having real good weather during the cruise was a bonus - we were very fortunate to take in all of the great views. The excursions were a mixed bag, in the sense that some expectations were not met. For example, we were ...

We were on this same ship pre-Covid to Australia and New Zeeland, and it is everything wonderful that we remembered! Lectures from University professors on Geology (fascinating in Alaska), History, & Astronomy helped us to understand the mountains, trials and tribulations of the early Gold Rush people, native Alaskan peoples and cultures and modern day roles these key cities in Alaska play. The ...

We chose our cruise late, we literally got the very last room available, 4000. It was gorgeous and roomy! The stewards, dinner servers, and whole crew team were extremely pleasant and friendly! Since we signed up late, we were unable to obtain any paid excursions and expected to be disappointed on the “included” excursions. Boy we’re we wrong! We were welcomed on shore by lovely students who ...

First Time Cruisers With Viking Will Be Returning!

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We chose this cruise because the ship was smaller than others and not as many people as other cruise lines. We hadn’t been on a proper cruise and don’t like the thought of those mega ships which look like floating cities. Additionally, we had heard that Viking provides good service, but actually we found the service to be GREAT! They had knowledgeable speakers explaining about the sea life or ...

Always wanted to see Alaska, and felt very comfortable with Viking's Covid protocols. I've done several longboat river cruises but was curious about the difference in quality with the (small) ships. I was even more impressed with the sense of intimacy and personal attention experienced on the ship! Having worked as an entertainer on large ships in the Caribbean in the 1980's, I was thoroughly ...

After 5 Viking river cruises, we were ready to try an ocean cruise. Alaska has always been on our bucket list, as was the Rocky Mountaineer. We decided to combine the two, with a post trip in Denali National Park. It just ticked so many boxes. We had spectacular weather and that made everything even better. We got to see the Glacier Bay glacier, which was pretty unique. Every shore excursion ...

Our 50th anniversary and great reviews. We have taken over 25 cruises and Viking was highly reviewed. The ship was very nice and very accessible. The service at dining was below expectations. We were able to eat at Manfredis one night before my wife contracted Covid. She returned her steak twice trying to attain medium rare with no success. We were confined to our room for 8 days even though I ...

Everything about this cruise was first class. Our suite, an Explorer (number 5000) amazing. Restaurants all amazing. Staff amazing. Talks fantastic, silver drinks package superb. Sometimes we felt like the only people on the boat and the staff treated as such. The ship is just the right size. 900 guests, and despite Covid causing some issues with staffing levels, we were superbly looked ...

We were originally scheduled for the Danube Waltz cruise, but the pandemic and other factors led us to change to an Alaska cruise. This was our first Viking cruise and we found it to be beyond our expectations. Staff, crew, accommodations were superb. We felt pampered and made friends with other passengers as well as our room steward and wait staff. Shore excursions were handled efficiently ...
