My sister and her husband had been on a cruise in October 2014 and had such a good time they wanted me and my husband to join them on another one. The ship was only two years old and was spectacular. It was clean and modern with all the ... Read more

Never having been on a river cruise we took the recommendations of friends to cruise with Viking. I can't say enough about Viking. They are a professional operation yet kind and accommodating. They couldn't do enough for us. The food ... Read more

Very simply, a wonderful experience. From the first step onto the ship it was delightful. The crew was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable throughout the cruise. From the minute we boarded the Buri it was apparent that the ... Read more

I ended up on this my first river cruise by default. My cousin's friend was returning from New Zealand and it seemed too short a turn around to go on the cruise so she asked her to see if she could find someone to take her place. I was ... Read more

Though we have lived and traveled in Europe many times, we had not been to Southern France and wanted to explore that part of Europe. The trip up the Rhone from Avignon to Lyon was just the right choice. Lots of good stops, tours, and ... Read more

I chose the cruise for the price/location and because I wanted to cruise on Viking. It was every bit as wonderful as I anticipated. The food was top notch and the tour guides were very informative. The guests on the ship were delightful ... Read more

Viking has a fine reputation. I've cruised with Viking before. This itinerary (Avignon to Lyon) was appealing because I did not know this area of France. Furthermore, the special airfare was a great deal. From beginning to end, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the excellent reviews Viking gets. As good as the reviews were, we were still blown away by how good the trip was. We were picked up at the airport by a very friendly Viking rep and taken to the ship for a ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the location and time of year. It fit our plans. The cabin was quite satisfactory and not just because we spent very little time there. Items like heated floor and mirror, French milled soap, water every ... Read more

The pre-cruise Paris option worked out very well: met at CDG baggage exit by the Viking rep who took our bags to the waiting SUV; met at the Meridien by the Viking host with keys, ample information and valet to handle our baggage; the ... Read more

This was our second Viking River Cruise and we were excited at the beginning because our first cruise had been such a delight. We took the Portraits of Southern France cruise in late September/early October 2015. We were warmly welcomed ... Read more

My husband and I have been on many cruises, but this was our first river cruise. We were really looking forward to the experience of sitting on the top deck (or our own balcony which we paid extra for) and watching the French countryside ... Read more

The Good: The crew, the staff, the boat. We splurged on an Executive Suite and didn't regret it for a moment. Spacious and well laid out, the stateroom easily allowed this earlier-riser husband to avoid disturbing late-sleeper wife. The ... Read more
