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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The cruise was very good and Australia/New Zealand were just awesome.

The ship was elegant as was the cabin. I enjoyed the choice of dining options and the housekeeping staff just awesome. Perhaps the only thing I feel could be improved upon were some of the free excursions. We felt ...

Not A Favorite

Combining factors reduced this cruise/tour to nearly unpleasant experience. The two factors were our lack of due diligence studying the time of year for down-under travel and Vikings failure to provide their ...
