  1. Is it possible to view the Rugby World Cup games will on cruise on Viking Orion In Asia next month. My husband has just realized we will be away during the World Cup games.
  2. I am in 3038 on the Viking Orion next month. Good to hear no noise from elevators. Only problem we have at the moment is Hong Kong. Cruise starts in Hong Kong.

    Hong Kong

    Mine starts in Hong Kong next month (20th September). I hope any change of departure point is given well in advance , to enable airline changes, but hopefully this will not be necessary. I do not have Viking Air. -
  4. I will be disappointed if I do not get a lobster dinner . Sailing on the Orion in September (Asia). Has anyone had lobster on the Orion when in Asia ?
  5. My cruise starts on 20th September in Hong Kong. Would be a major to change starting point. No other options .
  6. Thanks. Have found it. Only 18 signed. Only a few from the roll call. Have sent them a message to remember to sign up.
  7. I have signed up for my cruise 20th September . How do I find out how many have signed up. By going back in to M & M it only gives me the option of signing up again.
  8. The "California" is available on our sailing in September. (Also the two above mentioned menus). Anyone had the California. Chef's Table #10: California Cuisine First Course Crab Cake avocado, orange, fennel, shallot, dill & blood orange Amuse Bouche Sweet Potato Chip apple, rosemary, crème fraîch Granité Moscow Mule vodka, ginger beer & lime juice Main Course Seared Halibut California olive, herb vinaigrette, crumbled roasted cauliflower, buttered panko Dessert Ojai Mandarin Parfait candied ginger
  9. Is the MDR open for Breakfast each day, and open for lunch on sea days.
  10. If having a late lunch in the Pool Grill after an excursion, what time do the included drinks stop. The Pool Grill is open to 5.00pm but what time is the cut-off for included soft drinks or beer.
  11. Where to begin? Tokyo to Vancouver - Link to preview
  12. Can you give us a general overview of this cruise. I am going on the Orion In September. I have just read a review of the cruise before you (Japan to Vancouver) and it wasn't very flattering. The reviewer had done 4 previous tours with Viking and the Orion was not up to the standard of the other ocean cruises Bad service in the World Cafe (not getting served beverages until meal was just about finished, both at breakfast and lunch). Manfredi's - overcooked food, barely edible Did you do any of the included tours?
  13. I am in New Zealand and have never been offered a discount from a travel agent. Maybe the volume of sales is to low for discounts. It would be nice to have some onboard credit.
  14. Apart from the dress code, what is special about formal night in the restaurant. Is the food better.
  15. Thanks. On reading about the included tour, it seemed a waste of time. A sight seeing bus tour would have been preferable.
