Tokyo to Vancouver via Russia and Alaska


We had originally booked a shorter cruise of the inside passage when we found this longer cruise for less money because it was a repositioning cruise. I was able to show my wife beautiful parts of Japan before ...

Vancouver to Tokyo

We are in our mid fifties, very active, and chose this 23 day cruise because of the itinerary. It is a repositioning cruise, with 9 sea days. I was a bit nervous that I'd be bored during the sea days. In fact, I ...

Top cruise line and ship

An outstanding cruise which combines a repositioning with multi country/culture adventure. Seeing Alaska, Russia and Japan all while gaining extra sleep every other day made this relaxing. This ship (like all the ...

Greatest Ship I've Sailed On

Chose this cruise because we wanted to visit Japan, Eastern Russia and the Behring Sea. The ship was second to none, and I've sailed on many ocean cruises: 4 times on Princess (reasonably good for the money, but ...

93 days at sea: Viking Orion’s Grand Pacific Explorer

If you want a ship with a casino, climbing wall, giant water slide, etc., ignore this review and Viking Oceans. If you seek a family cruise with you and your (non-adult) children, look elsewhere. If you like ...

Viking Orion. Japan-Vancouver

This was our third cruise with Viking ocean. We chose this trip for the itinerary. We had never been to Asia and liked the ports in both Asia and Alaska. Crossing the Int’l Dateline added to the attraction. We ...

I also found not all passengers were treated the same. I think if you socialized with the crew you were treated better. If you spent time later in the evening with then and participated in their games, they greeted ...

Voyage of Marco Polo

This was our first cruise with Viking but I am sure it won't be our last. Previous cruises have been on much larger ships so were looking forward to discovering the difference. From day one we were blown away by ...

Almost to perfection, I’m not sure I’ll ever cruise on any other line again!

I have sailed a lot, probably close to100 cruises. On Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, I have spent over 360 days. But I was so impressed with everything about this voyage, I’m not sure I ever will go back to any other ...

Not Viking's Sparkling Moment

We choose this cruise, due to the many interesting ports, we'd not visited. Viking Oceans is trying to do, too much, too fast, and losing sight of the small details, involved in "Luxury Cruising". We'd sailed on ...

Right size Right pace

Choose Viking cruise based on positive prior Viking tour experience and smaller ship size. Ship personnel, amenities and dining experience more than met our expectations. Land tours were interesting and at a ...
