This was our first cruise and we wanted a relatively short and close to home one in case we didn't like it. How foolish we were! It was remarkable. Not only were the other passengers most interesting, but the crew were a delight and ... Read more

The primary reason we took the cruise was to visit Normandy. We did the pre stay in Paris. The hotel was in an ideal location next to the Eiffel Tower. It was also close to a metro stop that allowed easy access to all of Paris. Also ... Read more

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

This was a trip to remember. It was part of my bucket list to visit the d-day beaches of Normandy. That alone was enough to rate a 5 star rating. The ship was immaculate and the crew and officers did everything to make the trip ... Read more
