Viking Ocean Asia Cruise Reviews

Explorer Lounge: The last night, saying goodbye to a few of the crew that were just delightful (I wish I had a photo with some of the others; they were all great).
The Viking Jupiter at port in Greece.
Infinity pool at the back of ship, while docked in Istanbul.
State room in twin bed configuration for my mother and I.

This is only our 3rd cruise, the previous 2 were with Celebrity (Antarctica and St Petersburg) both of which were very enjoyable but I would certainly choose Viking over Celebrity in the future. Embarkation was very easy no big queues and our stateroom (5110) was ready soon after. We loved the position of this (aft) and it was great for the Panama Canal transit. Our room stewards were ...

My sister & husband cruise Viking all of the time, both river and oceanic. Other friends have used Viking and were impressed. We chose the Orion Cruise thru the Panama Canal because it was part of our bucket list. Our original cruise thru France was cancelled because of COVID. We will never cruise anyone but Viking. Getting to the Orion proved problematic BUT once on board We had no ...

Special Interest in Panama Canal AND great prior experiences on Viking ocean and river cruises! Particularly Happy with all the entertainment and learning experiences on board! Excellent dining and mostly free drinks were much appreciated! As always on Viking we’re able to meet many fellow travelers and make friends with them! We have already made arrangements to do an Antarctica trip with Viking ...

We chose the Orion for the Panama Canal itinerary, especially since it sailed from Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles. We enjoyed the historical lectures and the multiple Planetarium events, as well as the Canal Locks informative step by step discussion. The ship was well-appointed with very comfortable seating throughout the ship. Two smallish pools, with one being an infinity pool with the other ...

Should Have Been Better

Viking rated #1! Not for this cruise. Short amount of time in Bangkok. Included tour was much too short. For a city like Bangkok, more time is needed. Next stops, Kuala Lampur and Singapore needed much more time. Tours were ok, but guides needed a better command of the English language. The time spent in Indonesia could have been put to better use by extending Bangkok and Singapore. Jakarta ...

Disappointed and Feeling Deceived

We took the 12 night trip from Bangkok to Bali. The disembarkation port is more than 2 1/2 hours away from the city of Bangkok by taxi. This made making a visit to Bangkok after boarding the ship an expensive and challenging proposition. There was no indication of the distance from the port by Viking prior to our actual trip. Our next disappointment was with the beverage package.. My wife and ...

We were on the 12 day BKK > Bali leg. a) The Ship We should say up front we were wowed by the ship : immaculate and beautiful, and kept pristine by a dedicated staff. Although at 930 guests is one of the larger ships we have been on , it never felt crowded . There are loads of nooks and crannies to curl up with a book in peace and quiet.The child-free policy is another huge bonus. The ...

Choose cruise to the itinerary.... Bangkok to Bali segment... Selected a mix of ship and private Tours... Ship tours... Someone needs to insure that tour guides speak undertstandable English. Ship is awesome--but should be --it's only two years old. Staff --99% great... a couple of bad apples need a brushup on interpersonal skills... humans will be humans.. "In a minute"(with an ...

Great way for a first time visit to parts of Southeast Asia. The cruise was perfect in most all aspects : a great and smooth embarkation and disembarkation processes, baggage handling and airport transportation; excellent staterooms design and amenities that beats most luxury hotel rooms; simplicity, quality and beauty of ship furniture and amenities everywhere; superb quality of food and service ...

Bangkok to Slums of Asia

This itinerary was very poorly designed. Long 2-3 hour bus rides on excursions, through Indonesia slums and hot old buses. Stayed two days in Jataka, nothing to see but cheap for Viking to dock, Singapore was beautiful, we stayed 7 hours. The entire trip was promoted as as ending in Bali. We arrived at 6:00 pm, had to tender in, they overloaded tenders with to many people at 95 degree for a ...
