Viking Orion represents the first foray into Ocean Cruising, for Luxury River Cruise Line, Viking Cruises
. Offering the same high level of service, accommodation and destination immersion, these new Ocean Cruises are sure to be a big hit with both previous Viking passengers and those keen to try something new.
Viking Orion offers multiple restaurant locations and food choices, from casual cafés and pool grills to crafted wine-pairing menus and regional specialties. From the crown jewel main venue, The Restaurant, to the Tuscan cuisine of The Italian Grill, not to mention, the varied global and destination-based cuisine to sample at The World Café, featuring live cooking stations and al fresco dining.
The main theater features live performances that bring you closer to the culture of our destinations. They also pull back the curtains of the destinations with cinema in the two movie theaters, which show first-run films as well as destination-driven classics. Theaters are always buzzing with fresh insights from the enrichment talks featuring the history, art, culture and upcoming ports. To keep you in comfort, they have banished uncomfortable theater seating in favour of soft and spacious sofa seating
Swim surrounded by your destination in the glass-backed infinity pool cantilevered off the stern. Or experience the main pool, complete with a retractable roof, so you can always enjoy the perfect swim. Here, on star-filled nights, enjoy an outdoor movie as you sail under a canopy of stars. And when it is time to relax, try the ultimate Scandinavian tradition with the snow room and sauna; or a massage in the Spa.
Viking believe the best way to understand a country is through enrichment. Each cruise is thoughtfully curated with hand-picked itineraries so you can immerse yourself in history, music, art, cuisine—everything you need to know about your destination. And before you step foot on shore, you will glean insights from history experts and academic luminaries in our theater, chosen by the Viking Enrichment Board.
