Great Time in France

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: France
Embarkation: Other

Our Viking River Cruise from Avignon to Chalon-sur-Saone was nothing less than super. This was the best of the three Viking Cruises we have taken which is saying much because the other two were also excellent. The Buri has the nicest and hardest working staff and crew we have ever seen. They kept our cabin and the boat spotless. They were always friendly and went above and beyond in caring for the passengers.

Like the other two cruises the shore excursions were outstanding and met our needs. Viking offers a leisurely paced group in each town. This is very important to us because my wife has a leg condition which slows her walking pace. We were able to keep up with the group without being rushed.

The food and service were also outstanding. The wait staff were friendly and clearly answered our questions about the menus. They were very timely in filling our drink glasses. We did not go thirsty. The head chef Larss was outgoing and friendly. He should have his own show More on the "Food Network."

My only constructive comment is changing the docking port in Chalon-sur-Saone. It is at a run-down industrial area on the edge of town and can be difficult to find if you are starting the cruise there.

My wife and I can not be more pleased with " The Portraits of Southern France" river cruise. Less

Cabin review: Viking Buri 307

Cabin was kept spotless. It is just big enough for two which is expected for river cruise boats.
