Great to start in Anchorage     0 , QLD, Australia, Aug 2023
Thanks Jemma for everything to organise another great holiday for us. We really appreciated starting in Anchorage, and the 2 day pre-cruise extension was absolutely a great start. Marriott was well located and we loved the included orientation tour and then spending time exploring on our own. The transfer to the ship at Seward was very valuable as it's ...read more an awkward transfer if done independently. The cruise was good - but food was very American oriented - so lots of fried, fatty foods with not a lot of fresh - still - plenty to eat. Viking comfort and amenities were tops - as usual.

Stops we particularly liked were Icy Strait Point, Sitka and Ketchikan. Haines was a disappointing stop as there's really nothing to do there and the "famed" Raptor Centre turned out to be a few sad bald eagles in very small cages and lots of stuffed wildlife specimens. Skagway would have been preferable. Wildlife sightings didn't happen - but the weather was perfect - so you can't have everything! Hubbard Glacier was also good - although a long day in fog to get to actually see the mammoth glacier! Finishing in Vancouver was great as it meant just one flight home - instead of the 2 to get to Anchorage and the reasonably long transit between which made for a very long start to the trip. Thanks Jemma - talk soon again...about our next travels!!
Fantastic experience     5 , Vic, Australia, Apr 2023
The Viking "Far Eastern Horizons" cruise was fantastic. The shore excursions were led by very experienced Japanese guides. The excursions gave us a snapshot look at some great Japanese cities- Nagasaki, Hiroshima, Osaka, Tokyo etc. and Taipei in Taiwan. The on board lectures given by historians on the history, culture and food of Japan were a wonderful ...read more adjunct for understanding our experience. The accommodation, food and entertainment on the ship were first class. Would thoroughly recommend this Viking experience. Attached a view of Mt. Fuji photographed from the dining room at breakfast!
First time Viking cruise     2 , VIC, Australia, Apr 2023
Georgie from Global Journey efficiently made the whole booking for such a long trip easy answering all our questions and making late changes stress free.
Viking Orion was a magnificent ship having everything included (except spa) made for a relaxing cruise. Crew were fantastic and food exceptional. Japan was wonderful with plenty of time to take ...read more in the culture and beauty. Scenery and wildlife in Alaska was spectacular although we were disappointed that 3 excursions were cancelled and some ports visits were short. The shuttle buses provided by Viking made it an ease to go downtown and we always got a warm welcome back! Crossing from Japan to Alaska, 7 days at sea was a bit long for us. Extension of Vancouver we would have been better to have done on our own. We made incredible friendships we would definitely cruise with Viking again and book with Georgie at Global Journeys. Big thanks ­čî║
Japan, Taipei and Hong Kong     16 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2019
The quality of the Viking Ori├│n was stunning. The food was excellent with good variety and choice. The crew were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The shore excursions were generally informative and interesting. Time on the ship went quickly due to the wide choice of entertainment, talks and topical information provided.
Five Star in every respect.   16 , VIC, Australia, Jul 2019
This cruise was wonderful. The scenery was spectacular. An included optional excursion was available at every port and the arrangements for these ran like clockwork. Additionally there were a number of optional trips for which there was a charge. The times for these could be booked online pre cruise and so your personal itinerary was created. The cruise ...read more catered for approximately 900 passengers and because the ship was extremely well designed with a variety of spaces you never ever felt "crowded".

We really enjoyed the high quality of the food and we especially liked being able to book into the fine dining "Chef's Table" or the Italian "Manfredi's restaurant" if we pleased (available to all at no extra charge). A real highlight for me was participating in a French cooking lesson with 11 others. It was run by one of the chefs on the cruise. We also appreciated the talks given by the resident historians and specialists on board.

We certainly would book another cruise with Viking - in fact we have already done so! Jemma at Global Journeys was excellent. She responded to any enquiries relating to the trip very promptly and ensured all paperwork was in place in a timely manner. Thank you Jemma.
Viking Orion Cruise,   34 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2018
Almost new ship, with very good Penthouse suite, plenty of storage, great bathroom. Destinations were the attraction to book, and very good also, but August September 2018 very hot, especially in Egypt and Jordan, the worry of heat leading to our non-appearance for the Petra excursion. August & September proved to be a bad time for such a cruise and ...read more its excursions. Excellent on-board lectures/lecturers. Food OK, but a little below our expectations. Evening entertainment limited. All staff terrific.
