This was the worst trip I have ever taken. First they advertise 4 0r 5 star hotels. The one in Nice had no air conditioning in the hotel and the resturant was so hot that you were afraid to eat the food. The rooms were very hot and they ... Read more

Based on a number of reviews on this site, I decided to book this river cruise from Avignon north to Chalon sur Saone in Summer rather than Spring. There is less chance of the river level being too high for the ship to go under low ... Read more

Weather. Our cruise happened to coincide with a severe heat wave in France. High temperatures each day were 90-100+ degrees for the entire cruise. This would have been tolerable if the ship’s air conditioning hadn't started ... Read more

Our tour director referred to our trip as the cruise from hell, so i am not exaggerating. The customer service aspects of how Viking dealt with a catastrophic A/C failure on its ship during a heatwave was telling. First deny the problem, ... Read more

I must begin this review by noting that: (1) this was our second Viking River Cruise, (2) we are vegetarian, and (3) I am a bit of a wine snob (a self-proclaimed oenophile is the nicer way to put it). This background is essential for our ... Read more

We sailed from Avignon upriver on the Rhone on the Viking Delling. The weather turned out warmer and sunnier than we had anticipated. We didn't do any extra days before or after the cruise, but had we known what this part of France was ... Read more
