Viking Delling draws its name from Norse mythology; the god Delling is the "father of the day." The minute you walk onboard, you're bathed in daylight, thanks to the two-story glassed reception area. Light is ...

This was our first experience of any cruise and it will not be our last. There was attention to detail in all aspects of our week in Provence. The staff and the programme director Patricia were all so helpful and always charming. A good ... Read more

In my mind the south of France sounded like a good choice for our first river cruise. Both embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly; and during the course of the cruise we appreciated easy and continual accessibility to the staff. ... Read more

We chose Lyon and Provence for food and wine experiences and were not disappointed. The food and wine on the Delling were both quite nice, and we dined at a brasserie in Lyon run by Paul Bocuse, a three-star Michelin chef. I have to ... Read more

I chose Viking with a destination in Avignon, as well as a 3 day pre-trip to Paris. I have significant health issues and I wanted a cruise line with a good reputation that would take care of everything, and so I would not have to be ... Read more

We chose a Viking River Tour because ocean cruises have too many people. They feel like being in a crowded mall. This was our first trip to Europe. Viking was amazing. The ship was small and intimate. The crew was attentive. The ... Read more

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
