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

I have been on two river cruises in Europe with two different companies and can't help but compare. While we enjoyed our cruise with Viking, I felt Uniworld was a better experience. First, as others have noted, docking in Le Pecq ... Read more

We were on the Cities of Light cruise, from Paris to Prague. Can't say enough about it! Perfect in every way. The food was spectacular, even with my gluten free diet. They went over and above making accommodations for me. And even when I ... Read more

We traveled on the final cruise of the year, we spent Christmas in Rouen as the Normandy Beaches excursion would have fallen on a Holiday. This is a very pleasant easy trip. Viking was on the ball, they rearranged the itinerary so that ... Read more

Viking offers the most in depth cruise I have ever been a part of. From the staff, the ship, the local tour guides and the delicious food I could not have asked for more. They really do treat you like royalty on these cruises and I would ... Read more

The boat, food and crew were excellent. The overall experience was very positive but thought some things needed to be said. First off, as in other reviews, leaving from Le Pecq and not Paris was a huge disappointment. The area in Le ... Read more

My wife and I sailed on the Rinda, "Paris and the Heart of Normandy" on November 9. While we had read some less-than-complimentary reviews about the ship not docking in Paris, we were met right outside the Customs area gate and ... Read more

We cannot praise Viking highly enough. We chose the package that included a three day stay in Paris before the cruise and that was a wise choice. The hotel was a 5 star establishment and was wonderful. The transfers from the airport to ... Read more

We took the Paris and the Heart of Normandy cruise on October 26. Our real disappointment was the location of the dock. It was several miles outside of Paris which made it hard to visit the City whenever we wanted. That being said, the ... Read more
