Viking Ocean’s Orion ship and her sisters are new generation cruise liners implementing some of the industry’s top maritime technologies. Among those are the energy-saving hybrid engines (diesel generators and gas turbines), optimized hulls and bulbous bows for max fuel efficiency. All Viking Cruises ocean ships as design also feature the common for the line’s longships solar panels (installed on the Magradome pool cover) additionally minimizing the vessel’s exhaust pollution.
Like the sisterships, Viking Orion offers an intimate boutique hotel-like feel with its signature decor (Scandinavian-themed), luxury fabrics, spacious lounges with classy leather furniture, gourmet cuisine, unique art collection. Like all Viking Ocean ships, Orion offers longer cruise itineraries (with few sea days), plenty of daily scheduled organized onboard activities, several overnight ports' stays, selection of premium tours (offered complimentary in each port of call). Unlike most new cruise ships, all Viking Ocean liners lack casino (gambling lounge and bar).
Viking Orion is the world's 2nd ship (after Cunard's RMS Queen Mary 2) with onboard planetarium. Named "Explorers' Dome", this theatre-like venue is circular, with capacity 26 seats and located forward on Deck 8, facing Explorers Lounge. It uses the latest video projecting technology to show constellations and other space-related 3D videos on its domed roof.
