As first time Viking Ocean cruisers we enjoyed the ship very much. We have sailed Oceania multiple times. Viking ships like Oceania are not overwhelming in size with great service. Food was good although we thought Oceania was somewhat better especially the specialty restaurants. There was good variety at all meals. The grill outdoors was a good option for a quick lunch. Crew was superb with good service throughout the ship. We were underwhelmed by shore excursions and in future will arrange independent excursions. The ship is well appointed with many areas for exploring and hiding out. Entertainment like Oceania was okay. The availability to access enrichment talks was appreciated and internet was very good throughout the ship. We arrived in Sydney the day before departure so explored the city independently. We stayed in Bali for 3 days after disembarkation which I would highly recommend. We could have skipped Lombok
