Wonderful cruise & awesome experience
"Guest Services really worked with us for our disembarkation as we had a long time between leaving the ship and our plane travel time, offering us a place to store our luggage or to stay at a lounge.We dropped off our luggage and then went on a tour of Bali on our own in the afternoon as the ship was not leaving port until 11pm...."Read More

We chose this cruise because we have wanted to see Australia and New Zealand and this cruise had a lot of stops in both countries. Another plus was having the opportunity to unpack once and having a home base to keep coming back to vs a land tour where you live out of your suitcase moving every day or two. Those were the top 2 important criteria. Embarkation was very easy, especially since ...

My husband and I were onboard Viking Orion last November, starting from Bali (Indonesia), ending in Sydney (Australia). Going to Australia was never on our agenda because it was just too far from our home in New York. But Viking had a Flash Sale that included free airfare and free beverage package -- it was too good a deal to pass! We knew this kind of sale usually means limited stateroom ...

First time out of the USA since Covid and we picked to go to Bali and Australia--Big Mistake. We paid Viking extra to book our airline tickets (business class) and were only given 40 minutes to change planes at DFW from the domestic terminal to the international travel. Anyone who travels through DFW knows it's one of the most congested airports in the US. We arrived at Qatar airlines 15 ...

Nothing Like Prior Viking Cruises

After we canceled a prior cruise due to Covid, we had a large credit with Viking. To our surprise, the credit must be used on only one single cruise - not applied to multiple cruises. Since the Viking Komodo Australia cruise included the Great Barrier Reef, we chose this cruise despite the half way around the world journey. We booked a PV (premium veranda) cabin that included a daily stocked ...

The cruise hit the locations I wanted to visit. Super itinerary, excellent food and service. The alternative gourmet selections, especially the Chefs Table, were excellent. Shipboard internet access was reliable. Great lectures, especially historic perspectives, scientific topics and educational lectures. The crew was reliable and friendly, and most helpful in assisting with excursions, dining ...

Location---never been to Australia. Had a great experience before on a Viking cruise. Dining is awesome. Love the Italian option, but spread it around with main dining room and Chef's Table. Bars really fun. Cabin amazing, but common areas so appealing that we really did not need the size cabin we took. Entertainment was awesome on some nights and mediocre on others. The Viking singers were ...

We chose this cruise because it encompassed both my husband's bucket list of the Komodo Dragons on Komodo Island and my bucket list of snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. All the other stops were the cherries on the sundae. Komodo Island was rough, dry and dusty. It was exactly what we were told to expect. We were able to observe five of the dragons at a watering hole. We, also, saw a couple ...

Chose this cruise because of the itinerary. Embarkation was kind of chaotic but the disembarkation was very smooth. Viking does not administratively handle single people well. I guest this is not their market. However, more and more people are widowed and traveling alone. Cabin and service was excellent; entertainment and activities were on the low side; dining was good as was expected; ...

We chose this cruise because of the December sailing dates and because we wanted to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef. It's our first Viking cruise, and we were not disappointed. From the pre-cruise stay in Nusa Dua at a lovely hotel, with a great tour to three temple sites, to the interesting shore excursions, we were very pleased with the cruise. Our cabin was spacious and we had a great ...
