Staff was great. Services are excellent. Foods are excellent. Entertainment and ports excursions are adequate. We love the pre-extension in Nice with excellent excursions. The Viking staff there also were very helpful. Our flight came late and Viking host was there to greet us and helped to process the hotel room and the following day excursions. The whole trip would be great if our cabin were not equipped with sewage smell. But, we were outside most of the time so it was not that bad and we were tired when we got back to the room and fell asleep fast. However, when we were up, needed to get out of the cabin fast to avoid the sewage smell. Dining, food were excellent. Entertainment activities, port excursions were excellent Cabin and dining service staff, crew were very accommodating. Sewage smell was the whole time we were there. They came by and fixed twice by spraying the odor eliminator. I heard that they offered upper floor an apology and a bottle of wine. They did not say anything to us on the lower floor. People in our next door cabin confirmed to us. We complained twice before someone came and took a look. Read Less

We had a cancelled flight to contend with. Although booked through Viking Air (and they did know about the cancellation) they offered no help. We were on our own. We arrived on the cruiser at 2pm - not a good start. They don't tell you that other cruises moor alongside. It happened three times in our trip - not good. They don't tell you that you cruise more at night than during he day. If you go on the off-cruiser tours you will hardly see anything of the countryside. I have been in correspondence with Viking about aspects of our break. My first letter was answered within 14 days; my second letter remains unanswered after three weeks. On the positive side, the food and drink is good; the line staff are excellent (but we had reservations about more senior staff). Our fellow passengers were generally very good company and the off-cruiser cruiser trips were very good value. ... it could have been so much better Read Less

We have been on Viking cruises previous to this one......sailed from Amsterdam to Budapest 2 years ago and enjoyed that trip very much. We felt the quality of the food, service, and just the overall condition of the boats was better on our 1st trip We booked two trips...northern and southern France....and found the boats were in need of some attention. Our cabin had an odor of sewage that was really never resolved and also was in need of some updating. For the most part, the ports and shore excursions were wonderful. We did have a problem with the bus in Normandy that caused us to miss part of our tour. Nothing was done to make up for this, nor was an an apology offered. Also, we found any meal that was provided off the boat was just not good. I would compare it to cafeteria food. Embarkation and disembarkation for all trips were very well organized. We would consider booking another Viking cruise if it was on a newer boat. Read Less
