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

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

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

My husband and I are in our early 50s and have been on about 20 ocean cruises. This was our first river cruise and we chose Viking based on it's reputation and the research we had done. We started with a pre-cruise tour in Paris. ... Read more

Boy did we have a great time! The food was unbelievable. The chef made a real effort to ensure we were experiencing the fruits, cheeses and wines of the season and area we were travelling through. No request was too small and nothing was ... Read more

Very disappointed in this cruise. Had done Viking before and was very satisfied. Cannot recommend them in the future. The food was not good. The Program Director was awful. We arrived late because of a flight cancellation (they booked ... Read more

Boat and crew were fabulous but the river was not. We were not allowed to go on top of the boat during cruising due to low bridges. We have been on three other river cruises and that is one of our favorite parts. I would recommend Viking ... Read more

This was our second river cruise, and about our 30th cruise overall. The longship is new, well thought out overall, and the food excellent. The experience was much better than I expected and for our cabin (lowest price), pricing was much ... Read more

I was extremely disappointed with the Viking River Cruise from which I just returned. The river was too high so we couldn't leave the port. The way the situation was handled left much room for improvement. It was obvious that the ... Read more
