This was one of the most amazing trips I have taken. The entire Viking experience was excellent. From the moment we were met at the airport by a Viking rep to the end of the trip when another rep took us into the airport to check in, the customer service in all areas was exemplary. The food aboard the ship was extremely tasty; the housekeeping service was unsurpassed, and the services of the concierge, the social director, the entire crew, and the captain himself were above and beyond what I had expected. The excursions were informative and educational without ever being boring. Exploration of Paris after the cruise was fun and worth the extra fees. Embarcation and disembarkation were very facilitating. I loved the small ship and camaraderie of the crew with the passengers. Our every need was attended to. The smallest details were unexpected: providing umbrellas when rain was forecast, serving hot chocolate when we returned from a shore excursion on a cold day, providing cold cider on a hot day, giving us ample free time. The trip was worth every penny. Read Less

Wanted to see Paris and some of the french countryside. But the main reason for choosing this cruise was to go to Normandy. The tour of Normandy was good but way too short. we were able to see the Hi lites, but not enough time to explore the museum and see the films. Also would liked to spend more time at the memorial and try to find the graves of people from our state and town. Would liked to have been docked in Paris so we could see more of the city in our free time. Could have used a couple of days in the city to see more of the sights. I know this was a 7 day cruise and we did enjoy the tours we took. The ship and staff were excellent. The food was Excellent and plenty of it!. Our cabin was very comfortable and always cleaned when we were away. Read Less

I traveled with my oldest son on The Kadlin to Paris & The heart of Normandy as a pre-celebration of my 55th birthday. Previous to booking, we had gone back and forth over taking the cruise or just traveling on our own as we usually do. Finally, we agreed it might be nice to just step aboard and let everything be taken care of for us. It was absolutely the best decision, the cruise was wonderful, from the moment we stepped on board. Starting with our room, which was perfect, we had a Veranda suite, this allowed us room to move about. The Chef on board was exceptional, every meal was a special treat. I loved the ports we stopped in, and having the headsets allowing us to follow at our on pace and still hear them as they told us about the area. Looking forward to many more trips with Viking.

I took my three daughters on the "new" Kadlin in March 2016 to Paris and Normandy. We had a marvelous time. The personnel of Viking were truly superior - everyone was pleasant and ready to assist in any way possible. I either lost or had stolen my credit card. When discovered, I reported it to the concierge who immediately took care of the problem without hesitation; I was very thankful AND impressed! The trip was magnificent! The food was tremendous, the service was outstanding and the excursions were both informative and a pleasurable experience. The nightly lounge meetings were so informative and so much fun! Everyone involved on our trip had a great time and my daughters and I cannot wait to go on our next trip in May 2017 on the RHINE GET AWAY. I definitely recommend VIKING RIVER CRUISES to all - They also have ocean cruises too that I bet are fantastic! Read Less

We arrived in Paris two days before departure and went to the Palace of Versailles. It was spectacular! On Friday we were picked up at our hotel and brought right to our cruise ship. It was the maiden voyage of the Kadlin. The crew were there to meet us, offering us warm, moist towels to clean our hands. Our luggage was brought right to our rooms. Our 21 year old daughter traveled with us. We were a little concerned that the cruise might be too old for her. Not to worry. She met several other twenty-somethings and had a blast. She actually turned 21 on the ship and they brought out a cake with sparklers and sang. The ship had everything we could want. The room was well appointed and comfortable. We had a French balcony which was really nice. Our daughter had a standard room and while she didn't have a great view, she spent most of her time in the lounge. The only downside was the weather. It was very cool and overcast. We didn't spend much time up on the top deck. We are definitely going again and placed a deposit down for our next cruise. Would highly recommend Viking River Cruises.
