We organised a private tour guide - he was great but spent most of the day battling heavy traffic on skinny streets. We have now been to Bali twice on one trip - first and last!!

Took a tour of the Falls and the Elephants. Also toured one of the Bali Luwak coffee places. Very good coffee. The most expensive coffee in the world. Lots of assorted Teas to taste and purchase as well as Chocolate.

we arranged for a private tour with Lovina Bali Tours, our driver Yogi Samykha picked us up at the port of Benoa after a tender boat ride, we went Ubud silver market, Tengenuen Waterfalls and had lunch at a restaurant in Vissasa Retreat in Ubud very peaceful place. The traffic was a nightmare as it was a celebration day for Balinese people we made it back to the wharf in time to catch one of the tender boats back to the ship thanks to Yogis great driving skills.

Took two excursions in Bali and enjoyed them both. One was a self-guided half day in Ubud, the other to a temple on the coast. Fantastic.

Port of disembarkation for me, and this was the most upsetting part of the cruise. It was raining steadily as we disembarked, and the Viking staff was not helpful at all. I had to insist on help down the wet, metal gangway and request and umbrella to shelter from the rain. The staff seemed more interested in getting us off the ship quickly rather than safely. The buses took us to a delightful resort, where the entire staff treated us royally. The accommodations and luncheon were great. I wished I had booked the resort to stay longer. Read Less

Here we did our own thing hiring a Taxi to Kuta for a day of bartering (shopping) massages and a drink near the Memorial.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Mandapa Ritz Carlton before the cruise and would highly recommend it as an exclusive, peaceful and truly special experience. We did not take any excursions with Seabourn but arranged on our own to take the John Hardy Ubud workshop tour which we found to be very interesting and informative. Read Less

we took a local taxi for 8 people and paid around £12.50 per person for the entire day. We visited the monkey forest, rice terraces and elephant sanctuary. A wonderful day at a fraction of the price that the ship would have charged.

This part of Indonesia is very poor and I did not see anything that remotely looks like a vacation spot of the world. I couldn't wait to get back on board as I did not feel safe with all the shacks and ill kept temples around. Never ... Read More

We stayed in Bali 9 days before the cruise and it is a fabulous island. The culture, art and people are great. Just keep in mind the season as in rainy season it can be challenging for touring and beach time.

Hired a taxi and driver for the two days we were in port and had a fantastic time. Booked it from home before we left and Gede at Bali Charm tours was an excellent guide.

This is an overblown tourist town. We didn't join the tour but went on our own. Same with all other Indonesian town, get your own driver with car, negotiate the price and go from the port. The port is a little away from the town. You need transport. If you are adventure enough, get on a motorbike to go around town. It is quite lovely around Denpasar. Ubud is nice. Read Less
