We chose Viking's The Heart of Normandy in the fall in order to see Paris without the heavy tourist population of warmer weather and also to travel in Normandy. First of all, the ship's crew and the cruise director were all ... Read more

We initially were going on the rhine getaway but due to surgery had to postpone. This was our second choice but so glad we chose it! All venues/tours were outstanding. That said, we didn't enjoy Versailles - it was just too incredibly ... Read more

The choice of optional and regular excurisions were not as great as other cruises we have been on. Otherwise, the ship was great, service was great and the food was good. It seemed to me that Viking wanted to put a river boat on the Rhone ... Read more
