Viking Orion Cruises

4.5
(from 4 verified customers)

Viking’s all-inclusive cruises mean guests are freed from concern about additional costs. The ship – while not the destination – provides a super level of luxury; and on shore the focus is on the food, culture and customs of ports.

The ship docks close to port towns and cities, and with a maximum of 930 guests lost time waiting for shore excursions is minimal. The Norwegian heritage of the ship is evident with the light wood grains throughout that show their natural beauty. Colourful textiles such as rugs and tapestries recall the patterns of early Norwegian artists and craftsmen. Subtle accents of leather handrails and touches of slate and teak express warmth and character. Read more

There are displays of Viking heritage and artworks. Public areas are spacious, relaxing, and child-free. And for quietude your stateroom is sound-proofed. Everything in the ship's presentation has been well thought through and executed
