Ship Facts: Viking Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Spirit Deck Plans
Paris for Christmas!
This was a marvelous introduction to river cruising. Prior to this trip, we had taken several land/bus cruises and one experience was better than the other. Italy, Ireland, England and Sicily. But returning from Sicily in May, 2011, what comes in an email but a terrific offer for a Christmas tour - on a river? We could not resist.

The accommodation, the food, the entertainment, the hospitality, the crew and the ports we visited could not have been better. We lucked out with the weather as Winter is always iffy but it only rained one day and not for very long.

Oh the sites we saw! Normandy, several medieval villages alongside the Seine and Versailles! How does one explain Versailles to anyone who has not seen it? Breathtaking.

And Normandy were all those brave soldiers landed and many died to liberate France. What a moving location to visit.

And Paris! What a city. Even after the marvels of Rome, London, Dublin and Capri, nothing prepares you for Paris. A romantic wonder by day or night. From the Eiffel Tower to the heights of Monmarte, Paris has to be seen to be believed and appreciated.

Viking Tours has won our hearts and we are planning on returning again next year to one of those fabulous river cruises they offer.
