The cabin was lovely, the service superb, the excursions excellent. As a healthcare provider, I found the daily testing to be spot on. However, on the last day, before disembarking from Lyon, a group of passengers turned up Covid +. One was in my party. With zero discussion, we all were transported off to various cities and into hotels at our expense (but not selected by us) for isolation. Some ...

Having sailed previously on a Viking River cruise from Bordeaux and one of their Mediterranean ocean cruises, we were delighted to find nearly "back to back" sailings on the Duoro and Rhone. This review relates to the Rhone cruise on board the Heimdal. As always, the food was a delicious blend of local specialties, Scandinavian delicacies, and rock solid American/European fare--well prepared and ...

Preface and background: This was our 2nd river cruise and our first one on Viking. We sailed with Viking Ocean in 2019, so we knew what to expect with the feel and look of the ship. We had been in France for 5 weeks traveling independently when we boarded the Heimdal. This fact alone might explain many of my impressions of the Rhône cruise experience. The Viking Heimdal was clean, sleek, and ...

This was my first river cruise but not my last! Viking is a first class operation and the HEIMDAL is the best! The crew is more than helpful not to mention funny, the food excellent and plenty, excursions were fabulous and the excursion guides were incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and humorous. The Captain was always smiling and made himself available everyday to greet the guests. How he ...

The date and ports of call were our primary motivation for selecting this cruise. Our suite was beyond belief! It was a surprise, as we were upgraded to the explorer suite. Beautiful and comfortable, and the room staff were very accommodating, often checking with us to ensure we had everything we needed. Another highlight was the delicious food at every meal! We especially enjoyed the ...

My husband and I chose this cruise because we could pair it with the cruise that followed that departed Paris on the Seine. We wanted to see the southeast area of France and had never taken a river cruise before. The rooms were very comfortable, the ship well laid out with plenty of seating options during the day. Dining was exceptional - staff fun and very well trained and interested, wonderful ...

This was our second Viking river cruise....plan to go on another in the next year or two. Overall we enjoyed the many ports and efficiently organized and informative shore excursions. Tour guides were all very knowledgeable. Winery tours were excellent. Country side beautiful. Meals were on board very good and varied. Always fresh and many options to choose from, but if you have an ample ...
