We had expected better based on other travelers comments, cruise description and cost. To begin with the description of the cruise was misleading, it was described as spending two days in Bali, when in ...

Should Have Been Better

Viking rated #1! Not for this cruise. Short amount of time in Bangkok. Included tour was much too short. For a city like Bangkok, more time is needed. Next stops, Kuala Lampur and Singapore needed much more time. ...

Bangkok to Slums of Asia

This itinerary was very poorly designed. Long 2-3 hour bus rides on excursions, through Indonesia slums and hot old buses. Stayed two days in Jataka, nothing to see but cheap for Viking to dock, Singapore was ...

Very relaxing cruise on a spacious mid size modern ship

This cruise was a little different from all the other ones that I've been to. It is more relaxing, and more intellectual. The ship is newly commissioned, mid size but spacious for the number of guests. Except in ...
