A river cruise was on the top of mt "Bucket list" and my husband agreed to come along, he had never been to France. We contacted Viking and made all the arrangements and from that first call I knew we were in good hands. They took care of everything flights, trip insurance and assorted calls during the year from novice travelers. We arrived in Marsielle to be greeted by two representatives of Viking, the ships representative and our driver. From that moment on we were on vacation!

The drive to Avignon was terrific, our cabbie was a native and took the scenic route to the ship pointing out all the sights of interest to us. What a way to start our vacation. Upon arriving at our ship we weren't allowed to do any thing but relax. The staff was outstanding, always nearby but never intrusive. No question was a bother. The ship, the food and the wine! What can I say perfect. We did have one glitch too much water in the river so we stayed in Lyon for two days rather than one. The cruise director worked her magic and was able to plan a trip for our unexpected day in Lyon. It was a fabulous vacation and we are looking forward to once again sailing with Viking.

Cabin Review

Great room, compact and very efficient. Sailing up the river sitting on our deck watching the French countryside- what could be better.
