Almost perfect

Auckland to Sydney. The only disappointment was the final day in Sydney being too short, and apparent confusion amongst Viking staff about water shuttles from wharf to attractions. Arrived Sydney at 1PM, and ...

WOW!

We have been on five cruises before - Celebrity, Princess, Cunard and Norwegian. None of them compare to Viking (although Cunard is close). This cruise was pretty much flawless in every way you can imagine. ...

It was wonderful! Just wanted more of the South Island of NZ!

We chose this cruise because we had long talked about going to Aus/NZ and with free airfare, it was time to go! A storm out of Antarctic kept us from stopping in the port of Dunedin, and fire danger cancelled out ...

Surprising Bali and Australia

We chose this cruise because of the December sailing dates and because we wanted to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef. It's our first Viking cruise, and we were not disappointed. From the pre-cruise stay in Nusa Dua ...

Wonders of Down Under

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 ...

Wonderful cruise, even better post cruise excursion

We have been on a Viking River cruise and really liked it. Have always had Australia/New Zealand on our list, so decided to try their ocean cruise. It was a great trip. It did not have the high budget shows, or ...

Amazing first trip on Viking!

We love to cruise on the small luxury ships - Silversea, Regent, Seabourn (no children!) and this was our first time on Viking primarily due to the time of year and the destination. We were truly impressed and we ...

We had taken a river cruise with Viking and were happy with the experience. We wanted to try an ocean liner with fewer passengers and Viking fit the bill with the Australia and New Zealand destinations. The ship ...

Our experience on the Orion lived up to Viking River Cruise Standards in every way. Onboard entertainment was surprisingly good for such a small ship [ 900+ passengers]. The Viking Band performed every night in the ...

We selected our destination first, then we chose Viking because of the limited number of passengers and Because there is no casino, no photographers trying to sell pictures, no pressure to buy other items, no ...

Small ships are THE way to go - if you can afford it

As we all know, luxury does not come cheap. After years of sailing predominantly on Holland America with some side forays into Princess and a few other lines, we decided to try Viking for our most recent cruise. ...

First time on Viking Ocean Cruise, surely not the last time on Viking

We have come to avoid big ships, 1400+. We abhor having to walk through casinos and don't like the idea of a floating shopping mall, so we decided after 12 cruises on Holland America to try Viking. We may never go ...
