Excellent trip - well worth it

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

Steve Allen
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service on board was uniformly excellent and the entertainment was superb. We had a spacious suite and a very attentive cabin staff. The meals in the specialty restaurants were excellent and inspiring and we were able to invite our friends to share the table with us on many occasions. The shore excursions were a mixed bag. Some had excellent tour guides who ...

More New Zealand than Australia

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

RobertOh
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We've always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand and this cruise offered stops in cities in Australia (3 days) and several locations in New Zealand (the remaining days, not including 4 sailing days). We'd had great experiences with prior Viking river cruises, but this was our first ocean cruise. The overall quality of the cruise experience was excellent. The cruise was well organized. ...

A Beautiful Voyage

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The Viking Orion ship is beautiful and peaceful and provided a luxurious background for our visits to ports in Australia and New Zealand. We added the 3-day Sydney extention and arrived on New Year's Eve. Without prior planning, it's not possible to secure a spot to view the fireworks over the bridge and opera house. But we were delighted that we could see the fireworks in the sky from our hotel ...

Fantastic Voyage with an even better crew!

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

2-5 Cruises • Age 20s

It’s hard to pick the best part of our experience. The scenery was amazing and the port stops were a mix of off the beaten track and must sees. However, that’s not the reason you book with Viking. The reason you book with them is because everyone working on the crew has worked with Viking for years. This is so uncommon for cruise ships. Usually people burn out after months. The cleanliness and ...

Lovely ship and a good overview of New Zealand's East Coast

Honesty upfront...I did not choose this cruise. My 82 year old Dad did but ill health prevented him from going so Viking kindly allowed my Husband and I to substitute. At 55, the passenger demographic (more like 75-85) was too old for us and the activity level for the included excursions was too sedate BUT, for older and/or less mobile people, this cruise would be perfect. The ship is ...

VERY casual cruise with multiple options for Activity on shore and/or simple relaxation

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

HUGE Fan of Ocean cruising - however the older I get, the smaller the ship! I do not want to travel with children , (will take grandkids on Disney and love kids there), appreciate a contemporary ship with quiet elegence,, do NOT like snobbery, expect decent food, expect excellent service, friendly staff and my choice for paying extra for a beverage package. I also want an excursion at every port, ...

Best vacation ever!

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

John 8861
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

It was easily the best vacation we have ever had. The staff and crew all treated us like royalty. The entertainment was second to none and the enhancement lectures were very educational. The daily excursions were nicely supported by onboard resident historians that enhanced each port of call. The entertainment was nothing short of spectacular. From the 4 singers to the 4 members of the band ...

Disappointed, Won't Sail Again

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

lemonbalm
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I choose this cruise because of a good offer provided for it two years earlier and due to the good reviews Viking had been receiving. In addition to the the cruise, I signed up for the pre- and post-cruise packages. It turned out the excursion included in the pre-cruise package was a duplicate of one I already signed up for after boarding the ship, so I paid out of pocket for my own ...

Great voyage in a great ship

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This is our first time in a Viking Ocean Cruise and the experience was amazing. First, the number of passenger is not too big (less than 1000) which makes the trip more enjoyable. No lines in the buffet, no crowd in the major areas.The meal is outstanding in quality and variety. The staff is very nice and professional. The shows in the theater are excellent. There are shore excursions included in ...

Superb Cruise

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Viking Orion

Ashlin Tom and Jan
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

My husband and I planned this once-in-a-lifetime trip. We were not disappointed! Great service by staff and wonderful ports of call. Viking does an excellent job of attending to each person’s needs. Whereas on huge cruise ships where one can feel lost in the crowd, on a smaller ship such as Viking, they give personalized service. Excellent choices for food and beverage. Rooms and public areas are ...
