Changed itinerary but had a great time

Review for Viking Orion to Transpacific

This cruise was initially headed to Alaska and Japan (cancelled Russia), however the itinerary changed and we went to Alaska and then to Hawaii. We had 12 days total at sea, and the staff made it fun. Always something to do. Loads of goodies to eat provided by the most top notch staff we've had. Had some very rough seas, but that was actually pretty interesting. Saw cool sea creatures. ...

This is our 27th cruise, but the first on Viking. We have been on Holland / Celebrity / Princes. Wanted to try Viking Ocean as we see all the over the top elegant commercials. We were very disappointed. As first timers on Viking we realized very fast this appears to be a European model in booking class and dollars spent priority option cruise line. The more you spend and the times you have ...

The ship is very nice. Viking does a good job with the entertainment and education opportunities. Rooms are very nice. Common gathering areas are excellent. The food is good ... and sometimes great. All Viking staff are friendly and professional. Most of the excursions are excellent. Alaska is amazing. Would highly recommend kayaking around a glacier, see the Iditarod dogs, fishing for ...

First time on a Viking cruise and will not be the last. Great ship, personnel and a wounderful time in Alaska. Loved the room, bed was comfortable and cozy. Bathroom was large, well appointed and the floor was heated, that you got to control. Great feature for a chilly location. Loved the choices for excursions at each port. The included ones were enjoyable and the choices of the others ...

The only way to conveniently see the coastal parts of Alaska is by sea and we knew Viking would choose the best places to visit. The ports of call were well chosen. Viking provided at each port a plethora of opportunities for tours to fit everyones requirements from walking tours to helicopter rides. On two occasions they even deviated from the planned route to show us something of special ...

Chose this cruise based on a desire to explore Alaska, the itinerary, the pre and post trips available and reputation of Viking and experience on a previous Viking cruise. Ship was very comfortable and the service was excellent. Shore excursions were very interesting. However, when excursions had to be cancelled (through no fault of Viking), we let we were slow to be notified of an alternative. ...

We did this cruise to celebrate our anniversary. Viking was great in helping us celebrate with a lovely bottle of champagne and a cake at dinner in Manfredi restaurant. We greatly appreciate both gestures. We were somewhat disappointed in the included shore excursions but this was probably due to the itinerary and weather. Enjoyed the food in most venues. The food in the pool area left ...

We chose this trip to enjoy the beauty of AK, from the water. The facilities, per usual, were very very nice. Staff was professional and courteous. The onboard scholars, Drs. Smith and Eyers were spectacular, Very, very knowledgeable and engaging. There was a gentleman, M. Hick, who spoke of AK Native heritage, etc. He was very disappointing in that he read from the slides and ...

We had done an inside passage cruise a number of years ago on a different cruise line and wanted to experience it the way Viking would do it. We were not disappointed with the cruise (except that it rained a bit more than we would have liked)! The cabin was comfortable, with a very nice balcony. The food was plentiful, well prepared, and suitable for a variety of tastes. As always, the service ...

Alaska - Started rough but smoothed out

I am a Viking Oceans person. I love the serene nature of the ships and the maturity of the passengers. The ship is spotlessly clean and their employees are indefatigably cheerful. I won't go on another cruise line. This cruise started out rough when we heard (ahead of time) that we couldn't board until 5:30 due to port issues in Vancouver. Viking took care of us but it did mean that over ...
