"We wanted to see France via the Rhone.We very much enjoyed how laid back everything was without setting up expectations--such as having to reserve places for meals--it allowed us to be flexible in terms of how much time we wanted to spend in the cities...."Read More

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Hermod

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

Six of us traveled together from three different states. The ship was very nice - clean, attractive. Food was very good as was food service. A Viking river cruise is like a resort on water so a bit boring for active adults. I would suggest an included excursion in both the morning and afternoon. The paid optional excursions are generally more interesting than the regular included ...

Terrible attention to safety

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Hermod

My sister and I chose this tour as we had heard so much advertising about Viking’s first class service. There were things they did exceptionally well, but others where they totally dropped the ball. The tours were excellent, we enjoyed most of the tour guides and liked that they were locals that knew and loved the area. The transports were well organized and clearly marked. The food was good and ...

Unusually disappointing

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We're (79 and 74 year olds) and have previously traveled on 6 ocean cruises, 3 of which were Viking Ocean cruises and found them perfect. We have also traveled on 4 river cruises on other carriers and found them excellent. This was our first Viking river cruise. We've been to several European countries but never France and thought a cruise of the south of France and extension to Paris would allow ...

Viking was recommended to us by friends who had used them several times. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and looking for something special. We let Viking handle our Air, which was a great choice. We flew First Class,, which was the right idea. All the transfers were seamless, and so nice to see a friendly greeting when we arrived in Paris. Hotel accommodations were ...

Beautiful country visits

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We chose this cruise for our 25th Anniversary trip. The ship is beautiful and perfect sizing to not be overwhelming. The staff was nice and the itinerary decent. Now that we’ve completed the trip, I would rather have had more time in smaller towns and less in Lyon. 2 days docked in this city was too much. For the timing of this cruise, there was a theatre festival in Avignon adding 30,000 people ...

We wanted to see France from the River view. We have been on River cruises with 2 other companies. On the Rhine,Main and Danube. We picked Viking because of others reviews and our research. The crew was very friendly, knowledgeable and had Great interaction with all the people. The Maitre-d was the key to a well oiled crew. Peter worked alongside his awesome servers and bartenders. They all ...

Southern France in July a bit hot

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

My wife and I had never been to Southern France What was unfortunate was the upper level was only open for maybe 2 of the 8 days. Even when we were ported early morning, the crew did not open upper level. The crew was magnificent, but the food was not as good as our previous cruises. The temps did not help, but we knew this going into our cruise, Temps were 90+ most days and heat index closer to ...

This was my first River Cruise and my first Viking Cruise, and the experience did not disappoint! We did experience a minor snag while sailing as our air conditioning went out on the ship but to no fault of the crew. I wholeheartedly blame Mother Nature as France and most of the world was experiencing an extreme heat wave. The ships A/C condenser just could not handle the weather. That being said, ...

A little disappointed

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Viking Hermod

hmolinelli
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The air conditioning on our boat gave out on day 3. We were told that we still had air in our rooms but I think it was spotty. The dining room and lounge were very hot. The temperatures in France ranged from high 90's to low 100's. I thought the walking tours were tough especially in the heat. A lot of uphill walks on cobblestones. I go to the gym on a regular basis and think I'm in ...

This is our first trip on Viking and since it was a flash sale, it was a real bargain. Viking has excellent service and makes transportation really easy when you book air through them. The included excursions had decent tour guides and we loved the steam train ride. The stops were interesting with lots to do. We had the basic room but the windows were big, compared to portholes on a Uniworld ...
