The crew on this ship seemed to go out of their way to make the cruise as enjoyable as possible for all the passengers. There were quite a few unexpected occurrences they had to deal with ( like a train strike the day the pre-cruise people were supposed to come from Paris to Lyon to board the ship). They just hired a bus to bring them and then greeted them with campaign and an apology. Another unexpected issue was a bent prop from debris in the river on the next to last day. They again hired buses to take everyone to the next appointed stop. The food was excellent, the Cruise Directors was outstanding, and the crew and wait staff were all very capable and personable. The excursion choices were all very educational and entertaining. Each of the local guides that Viking hired were very knowledgeable and gave those of us in their group good advice, information and directions to places (call that shopping) we asked to go after the tour. We had quite a few days of rain so the "exercise top deck" was not available very much. Read Less

We selected this cruise solely because of the dates and location. And we would could not have selected a more perfect experience. The crew was magnificent; attentive, friendly, cheerful, kind, and seemed to enjoy their work experience as much as we enjoyed our vacation. Our cabin, a veranda state room, was compact but comfortable and beautifully appointed. The food was lovely, with choices to satisfy any taste or dietary needs. The excursions were just right - knowledgeable guides, educational (without being pedantic), and well geared toward the demographic of the passengers most of who were 60-70+. Not too strenuous, but not boring. The tours ranged from three or four busloads of participants for the included tours, and some optional excursions with as few as 6-8 people. These were very special - particularly our canoeing on the Rhone and trip to the Camargue. There were so many excursions to chose from, that we missed some of the sites we wanted to include. One of the highlights was the Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge built in the first century AD. The Camargue was fantastic - the wild coast, a lovely bird sanctuary packed with flamingos, the indigenous horses and bulls, and charming villages. Read Less

We did a pre cruise to Paris and had a MARVELOUS time. Super tour of Paris too. We then headed to Lyon by train....no concerns!!! They bused us to the ship and we got on board with a lovely lunch. Only problem, the temps in Europe were outrageous! 100 degrees plus most of the trip! We drank LOADS of water needless to say!!! Our cabin was small but we were very comfortable. We had a standard cabin which was perfect. All our stops and land excursions were amazing. We purchased a couple of ones and they too went beyond our expectations !!!! The river itinerary was excellent!!! The food was beyond outstanding!!!! Always something for everyone. The wines were excellent too (we did not have a beverage package). The entertainment was good, especially the locals coming on board for the evening!!! We were lucky one of our travel companions is a performer and the pianist allowed her to sing!!!! We made many friends onboard too. This is our second river boat cruise and it was just as wonderful as the first one!!!! We'll be back! :) Also need to mention, we used Viking air and it was perfect. Thanks, Viking, for a wonderful celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary!!!! Read Less
