My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip along the Seine up to Normandy--at least until the Norovirus started hitting the passengers. I estimate that 10-25% of the passengers got sick at some point and their was NOTHING on board to ... Read more

The trip on the Seine was wonderful. The crew was very attentive and went above and beyond the call of duty when my husband became ill. Our cabin steward was outstanding. The food service was impressive and the selection of dishes left ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on the Seine. Although the Neptune is an older ship which has to show its age and without the "flash" of newer vessels -- we had traveled on a sister ship four years ago so we new what to expect. ... Read more

Vikings service is the very best we have ever experienced from a cruise company. The close up tours of the ports felt like we were part of the community. Every port was so unique. Visiting Monet's residence and the Water lily pond was ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers of 77 Ocean/4 River cruises. Our Suite turned out to be a small one room cabin with A/C that was hard to control. This ship was built in 2001 and will be retired next year. The door locks went out one day and ... Read more

Our cruise was wonderful and we will never take a cruise on a large cruise ship again. We like the smaller ship because we got to know the staff and the people who were taking the cruise. Our tours were very interesting, and enlightening ... Read more

We have cruised before on ocean liners, but never a river cruise. We are now spoiled. The ship is small and easy to navigate and we never felt like we were herded anywhere. This cruise delivered more than we expected and was an incredible ... Read more
