We chose this cruise because it was 30 days across southern Australia, across the Indian Ocean, and parts of South Africa. We had never been on a Viking Ocean Cruise before, only Rivers across Europe and China on Viking. We were surprised at how quickly we acclimated to being on the ship for 30 days but the time went quickly.
Viking is a first rate operation with passenger comfort a top priority. The ship is beautifully designed with Viking era art throughout.
Free WiFi and huge movie list for sea day entertainment.
Staff learned our names and treated us like royalty.
Wide range of on board entertainment such as lectures from archeologists, astronomers, historians, indigenous people performed their native dances and music, and a troupe of dancers and musicians traveled with us to entertain as well.
A free spa with relaxation tables, hot tubs, cold plunge tubs, a frozen grotto filled with snow and a steam room. Massage therapists, beauty salon, and gym rounded out the experience.
Laundry facilities on each deck.
Small stores with lots of fun articles to buy for souvenirs at decent prices for a cruise ship.
It was a small ship but did not feel crowded. Lots of public areas to use with cozy furniture for lounging. Multiple bars and snack stations for around the clock refreshment.
Can’t wait to go again!!!
The rooms are all verandas with space for chairs and table. Plenty of space to store items in room and toilet. Huge toilet and shower with heated floors and fog proof mirrors. Excellent soaps and large fluffy towels.
