This was our third Viking River Cruise. We went on this cruise as we wished to visit Paris and the Normandy Beaches. When we booked this cruise over a year before we sailed we believed the ship would be moored close to the centre of ... Read more

We wanted to tour Paris first and then tour southern France. My sister and her husband were also interested in the itinerary, so it gave us a chance to visit with them and tour at the same time. We loved our three days in Paris and would ... Read more

I always wanted to see the vineyards and the lavender fields. This leisure travel was perfect. The quaint towns we visited and all the wonderful architecture were grand. The ship, the staff, the service, the food, the excursions all ... Read more

We went on the Portraits of Southern France cruise on October 11, 2015. It was our 3rd Viking Cruise, and we have one more booked and others in planning. In short, we love Viking. In fact, our trip to China with them (May 2015) was the ... Read more

Our September 20, 2015 cruise was plagued with problems. We were notified 3 days before our cruise was to begin that the Saone was experiencing high water levels, and the Hermod would not be able to reach our embarkation port, ... Read more

The itinerary was very good and the stop at Normandy was really special. The crew was wonderful. The food was ok. The wine was served amply. The cabin was ok but the carpeting there and throughout the ship was in poor condition and ... Read more

Excellent trip from start to finish. We had cruised from Amsterdam to Budapest with Uniworld in 2012 and while the Rhone is not as scenic as the Rhine or the Danube, the towns and villages we visited were very interesting. We were met at ... Read more

The Hermod is only a year old and is in beautiful condition and very well maintained by the staff. It is simply gorgeous. The public areas are very well appointed. The dining room suffers from a low, hard ceiling and is very noisy. It ... Read more

I had my doubts about river cruising. The Viking cruise was first class all the way. The ship was modern, clean and spacious. Although our standard room was small, we spent very little time in it so it didn't make a difference. Opt for a ... Read more

When I saw some of the scathing comments about customers’ experiences on the Hermod and we were about to set off to cruise on her, I was extremely concerned. However a very prompt reply to my email to the hotel manager on board ... Read more

Based on a wonderful Rhine cruise on Viking last year, we booked the Portraits of Southern France river cruise for this year. What a mistake. We arrived in France at the tail end of the European heat wave. The temperature was in the upper ... Read more

The Hermod had an accident last Saturday night so we never got to board on Sunday. They put us in a business class hotel in Avignon for 3 days and now in Lyon for the remainder. It has turned into a bus trip of very inferior quality with ... Read more

There is a saying that you You don’t really know your insurance company until you need them. In our case we didn’t know our cruise company, Viking, until we needed them to stand behind their product. Without going ... Read more

With careful consideration, we decided to take a Viking River Cruise to the south of France. The goal was to not have to take buses, not to have to pack and unpack and enjoy "cruising" on a river. We left Sunday for an 8 day ... Read more
