We have always had Australia and New Zealand on our wish list but the large cruise ships kept us away. We saw the size of the Viking ocean liners and it fit us to a t. Embarkation and debarkation was a breeze.
We also liked the "No Kids", No Casinos", and" no umbrella drinks" policy.
We are loyal Viking river boat travelers and the Viking spirit is on the ocean liners as well.
Very well designed cabin with a spacious bathroom. The closet was large enough for the two of us and there was a dresser with drawers for us also. It was very quiet and private and the veranda was an excellent place to relax while under way.
It was amazing to see the damage of the earthquakes and the rebuilding efforts.
Very informative and learned alot about windy Wellipngton
Great examples of art deco and even found a wonderful ice cream shop to enjoy while people watching.
We learned so much about the Maori people and their striving to retain their culture and language.
What a lively city with so many boats filling their harbor. Great fish and chips!
