54 ASEAN CRUISE DIRECTORY 2018/2019 ASIAN FLEET PREMIUM Viking Ocean Cruises Viking has six small, luxury ocean-going cruise ships catering for 930 guests each. This allows Viking to go where larger ships cannot reach and guests are able to get to know the destination and cultures more intimately and at a more relaxed pace. There are no casinos, no kids, no umbrellas in drinks, no art auctions and no inside cabins onboard Viking cruise ships. Instead, Viking ocean cruise ships often spend two nights at destinations to allow guests time to immerse themselves in the local culture. It is what the line calls the “Viking Difference” which sets it apart from other cruise ships. The line’s newest ship, Viking Orion will cruise to Southeast Asia and China in August, before arriving in Sydney in November. Viking is an inclusive cruise with free WiFi, complimentary wine and beer at lunch and dinner, ground transfers and one shore excursion at every port of call. / DINING Main venue The Restaurant has open seating and al fresco options for good weather; The Chef ’s Table has an inventive set menu with wine pairing; and Manfredi’s does Italian fare with a good atmosphere. For a small extra fee, a meal at The Kitchen Table includes an in-port, chef-guided market visit and a hands-on cooking experience. Afternoon tea is served daily. / FACT FILE Vessels: 6 Passengers: 930 Destinations: Scandinavia, Baltic, Mediterranean, Americas, Caribbean, Asia, Australia and Africa. / CONTACT Viking Ocean Cruises P: 138 747 W: vikingcruises.com.au/ oceans / ACCOMMODATION Staterooms range from 25 to 31 square metres, all with balconies, large bathrooms with heated floors, anti-fog mirrors, Freyja toiletries, plush robes and slippers, and complimentary movies on demand. / FACILITIES Shuffleboard, golf putting, yoga, theatre for evening shows, bars, lounges, fitness stations with a view.
