Leaving Paris on the Seine.
I took this on my older iPhone at Monet's garden in Giverny.  Grounds are beautiful.
Sometimes your boat is tied alongside another boat at certain ports... if you have a balcony, you might meet new friends!

My friend loves Viking so we had to give it a try. Now i know why she likes it so much. Ours was a small intimate ship. No small tables at dinner so you are forced to meet new people and make new friends. We would sit at a table with our new friends and a bottle of wine and talk for hours. I loved sitting on the top deck and watching the river landscape go by. The excursions were very ...

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see where D-Day took place... and we had not been to Versailles or Paris together. We enjoyed every port and particularly enjoyed Monet's house and gardens in Vernon/Giverny. The cruise staff was great... Chef was great... great menus/food. Our room was very well designed and appointed. Simple and clean. All of our luggage fit under the bed so once we ...

We both had dads, uncles, and several relatives who served in WW II, some part of the D-day landing. Our primary purpose for choosing this Viking voyage was to see the beaches of Normandy, we weren't disappointed. Our tour took us to visit a very well presented museum depicting war memorabilia, historical events, and displays of items from that most important day in ours and European countries ...

Our travel agent (AAA) was very positive on Viking. We were met at the airport both arriving and leaving. A class operation! The tours were well planed and provided historical insight and were organized for anyone (both healthy and those needing assistance) Mia, our Program Director , was wonderful. She was friendly and helpful every moment of our stay. The waiters were very attentive and made ...

Everyone has a "bucket list"; for some that list is very refined, but for us that list was simply "see Paris and the Beaches of D-Day". Viking has made that simple ambition very easy with the "Paris and the Heart of Normandy" cruise. The fact that you also see and learn way more than you expected is the "kernel" that makes Viking so special. It really doesn't matter whether your accommodation is a ...

My brother did this cruise several years ago. We had never been to Paris before and have always wanted to go to Normandy. Mia was our cruise director She was terrific! Great sense of humor. I enjoyed all the entertainment she arranged for us. The chef is such a nice fellow and we never had a disappointing meal. We met some wonderful people and ate with various groups at different ...

This was our first Viking cruise after hearing positive reviews from friends and neighbors. Due to COVID this cruise had been booked for 3 years and we were uneasy about traveling now. But the cruise and the extra days in Paris were fantastic. Only two items were issues. One, our airline travel was on time and accommodations were as expected, However, upon arrival at our hotel on the morning ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first time ever on a cruise and for us the experience was exemplary. Our trip began with us being greeted and escorted to our transportation by Viking Staff. Out luggage was whisked away not to be seen again until we entered our stateroom. We were very please with our accommodations on ship. The room was comfortable and all the necessary toiletries were in place. I sleep with a CPAP ...

Never again. My husband and I are seasoned cruisers who have done about 40 different ocean cruises. This river cruise left us totally underwhelmed. The ship was clean and the crew was somewhat friendly, but there were so many things lacking. First, we had one of only nine suites on the ship. We paid considerably more than the smaller cabins however, upon boarding the ship we discovered, that we ...

We were very interested in seeing Normandy and we heard from relatives what a great job Viking did on cruises. We made the right decision! The attention to detail, ease of transport from one location to the next, and quality of the boat were impressive. The staff was friendly, attentive, and competent. The policy regarding masks on board was spot on, and we were very comfortable every step ...
