This was our third time to travel with Viking Cruises. In spring of 2017 we traveled the Danube river from Bucharest to Budapest. This was such a fun and exciting trip beginning in Bangkok with a two day pre-cruise stay. We enjoyed the city market and the temples including our favorite, the Golden Reclining Buddha. The cruise journey found us visiting Jakarta, Singapore, several stopes in Malaysia and Indonesia. Bali and Komodo Island were exciting and then we were off to Darwin Australia. The first part of our curse we experienced very warm temperatures with high humidity which allowed us to spend most afternoons in the beautiful on board pools. From Darwin we experienced may beautiful cities as we cruised down the eastern coast of Australia with Cairns, Hamilton Island Brisbane and Sydney some of our favorite locations. The service was excellent throughout the ship. Our suite was top of the line with the wrap around balcony for outstanding views. The food was excellent in all of the locations, although Manfredi’s has always been our dining experience. The journey was not complete as we left Sydney on our way to Auckland New Zealand with these last fifteen days were the cherry on top of the wonderful trip. Beautiful landscapes, cities and people.

Bangkok to Auckland in 45 days.
