Viking Orion – Indoor Spaces


A ship with many nooks

Lowest floor of the Atrium

Scaled towards 930 passengers, Viking Ocean ships are naturally more intimate than many cruise liners. The atrium, known mainly as The Living Room, for example is relatively small and understated – showcasing the earth tones and soft furnishings you’ll find throughout the ship. There’s a grand piano used for music every evening, and a coffee/cocktail bar open throughout most of the day and evening.

The Living Room bar

There are spaces to read, to socialize, or to attempt puzzles or electronic games. Many of the spaces have a deliberately “library” feel, with shelves full of books to peruse.
