The Orion is a beautiful ship with anything on board any traveler could ask for. The food is excellent, the staff is always helpful and attentive. Our cabin stewards were there at every turn as was dining room staff. A delightful cruise on a lovely ship.

This ship was beautifully designed with so many lounges and areas to relax in. Viking is a big cruise line that knows how to deal with people to make the experience very enjoyable. Multiple restaurants with excellent food and a very friendly staff.

Viking Orion

There isn't much to do on the ship. Usually one show a night, some nights we don't have anything but movie on the big screen. There is a good selection of movies, TV shows in the stateroom. The ship is new, nice and clean. Staff are very friendly. there is not a good variety of food at the Buffet and high tea. The food in all areas did not meet my expectation. However, the specialty restaurants are very good. The spa is amazing.... with therapy pool, sauna, steam room, ice room. The operation system in the dining room is not organized. Sometimes different staff would come by and ask the same questions within 5 minutes, and sometimes we felt they were too busy to acknowledging our presence. I feel the included excursions are not meaningful and the optional excursions are overpriced. Overall based on my experience on Viking Orion, Viking Ocean is over rated.
