    CC Member ronbe65 has written a wonderful overview (link below). I hope this is of assistance. From the Cabin Guide in the Viking blog. https://viking-cruises-cabin-guide.blogspot.com/

    You might need to cover all bases. It is 80F in Sydney today, 82F in Brisbane and 90F in Cairns ... but only 68F in Hobart and Dunedin. I probably should have asked .. are you travelling thru to Bali ? If not my advice about Cairns / Brisbane temp's is probably not really relevant

    Well done. Orion will be back in Sydney on March 9 / 10 and Sun on March 15 / 16 if you want some more webcam entertainment. There is so much more to Australia than just Sydney Harbour of course, but the harbour is a very special place. Enjoy. LM

    Thanks RtS. We lived in Sydney in the past (more than 20 years ago now) but we do go back regularly. The harbour area is wonderful. I'm glad you were able to stay up to see the Orion go under the harbour bridge and I hope you get to visit one day. Regards, LM

    Correction .. Orion has departed. My apologies. I think I lost the link and didn't realise.

    Yes, we were on board when Orion arrived from Auckland in mid January. It was a beautiful day on a beautiful harbour. The Orion is presently at White Bay which is just a short distance from the harbour bridge. Sunset is 80 minutes away so we might get some twinkling lights on the bridge and in the city as the ship departs (assuming she departs in the next hour). Cheers, LM

    Fantastic .. well done !! The webcam on the ship seems to be out of order, but this is a fine substitute.

    Viking Homelands - Recommended Excursions?

    We did HL in July 2017 and the ship berthed at Stadsgarden - a nice walking distance to the Old Town. Of course probably best to check the port schedule to confirm ... http://crew-center.com/stockholm-sweden-cruise-ship-schedule-2019 Enjoy

    Welcome to Australia. Unfortunately many places in north Queensland and northern Australia have had record rainfalls in recent days / weeks - in some areas the rainfall levels are the highest on record. It is the wet season, but it has been extremely wet. You may find the trip to the GBR today to be a little rough. The Daintree River has been in flood for a couple of weeks on and off and roads in the area have been cut so you may have been lucky to see the Daintree area at all. Hopefully the weather improves for you. https://www.cairnspost.com.au/news/cairns/cyclone-potential-for-easing-monsoon-as-cape-communities-wait-for-supplies-to-come-in/news-story/25734b4f67baa1e443076e177dd672b2

    Viking Orion in Tauranga 26 Jan

    I'm a bit late coming to the party .. I just found this Forum / this Post (I usually lurk in the Viking Ocean Forum). We were on-board Orion for the return journey Auckland - Sydney which departed Auckland on 30 December. Of the 900 or so passengers for our cruise there were 35 Australians, a similar number of Kiwis, about 150 from UK / Europe and the remainder (the great majority) from the US. That was our second cruise with Viking. We did Bergen - Stockholm via St Petersburg in July 2017 - which was fantastic - and we are going Bergen - Reykjavic in May this year and Venice - Athens in June. We are new to cruising but love what we have experienced with Viking so far and would not consider any other cruise line. Cheers, LM
