Aquavit Terrace with carols playing quietly in the background - gorgeous!

Lunch onboard, as we float by on the Seine.

Paris during the 2019 strike: complicated, beautiful and worth it

We chose this itinerary mostly to see Paris, but the other ports were quite wonderful, too. This sailing left from Paris during the great Strike of December 2019, which added some unexpected drama to the tale and certainly caused inconvenience for everyone in France at that time. Despite it all, Paris was magnificent and Viking made the entire voyage as enjoyable and convenient as they could, ...

We really wanted to visit Normandy Beach and cemetery because of the history. The scenery was a bonus! As always, Viking takes GREAT care of all of its passengers - fantastic food, great customer service, very reliable transportation, fully-stocked bar, shore excursions, transportation to & from the airport, etc. The crew - bar, dining, cruise director, ALL of them - did a great job! We ...

This was our first river cruise, first time with Viking, and first trip to Europe. Throughout the entire journey, the Viking staff was very attentive, well-trained and polite. They truly want their passengers to have a good experience. The room: We were in Veranda Cabin 339 toward the end of the ship, but still convenient to everything. The room was clean, and up-to-date, with everything ...

I choose this cruise because I wanted to go to Normandy to celebrate being this year marked 75 years since World War II. I had cruised prior with Viking on the Danube and I knew the type of cruise experience they provide. This cruise was no exception. Viking provided excellence in customer service which began with the airport transfer to the hotel, the transfer to our longboat, and the transfer ...

We planned this cruise as a commemoration of my late father-in-law's D-day service. My husband had spoken of taking such a trip for several years and we finally decided to just do it. So happy we did. As someone who finds war disturbing on every level, I must admit the Normandy Beaches outing was surprisingly moving. The sincere appreciation demonstrated by the French people is touching, as ...

We had received brochures from Viking for several years, but until we both retired we didn’t take them “seriously”. Once we made the decision to book a cruise we researched the options, spoke with friends who had taken Viking trips and chose the Rinda Cruise along the Seine. The trip was beyond our expectations...the food, the accommodations, the attention to detail. We felt so comfortable on the ...

We wanted to experience Paris and all of the history in the area. We thought a river cruise was the best way to accomplish this. We were not disappointed! Museums, castles, palaces were fabulous. Normandy was emotional. Wish you held the Paris at night tour earlier in the week because people are preparing to leave early the next morning. Each stop had a great tour and lots of information about the ...

Viking gave impeccable service as usual, the ship was clean, cabin comfortable and warm,and the staff friendly and efficient.Excellent cuisine, with staff very accommodating with my food intolerances. Our shore excursions were well planned, although we would have liked a a little more free/explore time in some of the quaint towns. We did the extension tour to the Loire valley, our guide was ...

We are experienced ocean cruisers, but this was our first river cruise. We were originally scheduled on the Danube on Avalon. Due to low water levels, Avalon offered a refund which we accepted and chose this Seine trip on Viking instead. We were very pleasantly surprised by Viking, having heard some negatives, but we were so impressed we have booked our Danube trip on Viking for next year and hope ...
