This is our 4th Viking River Cruise and was just what we wanted. It was very laid back and relaxing. Bordeaux is a beautiful city and the cruise gave us just enough interest to want to go back to the city for a longer visit. Viking has ... Read more

I have been on two river cruises in Europe with two different companies and can't help but compare. While we enjoyed our cruise with Viking, I felt Uniworld was a better experience. First, as others have noted, docking in Le Pecq ... Read more

Picked this cruise because it was on our bucket list to go to the Normandy D-Day beaches. The cruise director, Ken Dermer, was excellent and made us feel right at home. The crew was great. Service was terrific and the stewards were ... Read more

Viking offers the most in depth cruise I have ever been a part of. From the staff, the ship, the local tour guides and the delicious food I could not have asked for more. They really do treat you like royalty on these cruises and I would ... Read more

The boat, food and crew were excellent. The overall experience was very positive but thought some things needed to be said. First off, as in other reviews, leaving from Le Pecq and not Paris was a huge disappointment. The area in Le ... Read more

We had a marvelous time. The ship, our cabin, the staff, the meals and alcohol...all of these exceeded our expectations. The town stops and the tours were all excellent. The service was extraordinary; we have never experienced such good ... Read more

My wife and I sailed on the Rinda, "Paris and the Heart of Normandy" on November 9. While we had read some less-than-complimentary reviews about the ship not docking in Paris, we were met right outside the Customs area gate and ... Read more

We cannot praise Viking highly enough. We chose the package that included a three day stay in Paris before the cruise and that was a wise choice. The hotel was a 5 star establishment and was wonderful. The transfers from the airport to ... Read more

I just have to say it - we had an amazing time on the Rinda. All the staff worked hard to please the passengers. The food was excellent, the rooms were fine. Service over all was a 4 or 5. However, as wonderful as the experience on ... Read more

We took the Paris and the Heart of Normandy cruise on October 26. Our real disappointment was the location of the dock. It was several miles outside of Paris which made it hard to visit the City whenever we wanted. That being said, the ... Read more

My father had landed on Omaha Beach during the summer of 1944. I wanted to see where he had been and try to imagine what it must have been like. The Museum at Arromanches was excellent. I have worked in museums all my life and I was ... Read more

Following our first river cruise with Viking from Paris to Normandy in spring 2015 we decided to some day take another. The availability, timing and opportunity to join previous Viking cruise friends made an easy decision of cruising again ... Read more

1. Summary: After reading & watching the Viking advertisements and paying top dollar, we were disappointed; we paid for gold, but the Vikings delivered only bronze. We did see a lot of Paris and we did see a lot of other parts of ... Read more

We returned from our Paris- Normandy cruise on May 25th. We were on the Rinda. It is one of their newer ships- so we were obviously looking forward to that. Unfortunately, the fact that it was newer- and longer than their other ships- ... Read more
