Location---never been to Australia. Had a great experience before on a Viking cruise.

Dining is awesome. Love the Italian option, but spread it around with main dining room and Chef's Table. Bars really fun. Cabin amazing, but common areas so appealing that we really did not need the size cabin we took. Entertainment was awesome on some nights and mediocre on others. The Viking singers were awesome with song and dance. But they only did a few shows. The comedian/magician was also great. I'd love for there to be great entertainment every night, not just about half the nights. But the half that were great were really great.

Could use an extra day in Cairns. Generally, the excursions were at least good and sometimes amazing. Always well organized and on time.

Bali seemed exotic, but was not as cool as I imagined.

Komodo Island

Super hot, but amazing to see the Dragons.

Thursday Island

We hiked the island, but it was not that amazing.
