We chose the Paris-Normandy Viking River Cruise aboard the Viking Spirit or our 50th anniversary celebration. Everything about this cruise was top of the line. Paris and the other towns visited were wonderful, historic locales. The tour guides were excellent, and their audio devices worked well. The Viking Spirit staff is made up of dedicated professionals, each of whom strove diligently to make the cruise the best experience possible. Any request was promptly and graciously handled. From the wonderful Joana at the Reception Desk, to the Program Director Filiz, the wait staff in the restaurant, the cleaning crew, the attendants in the lounge, all strived to achieve excellence. And, my goodness, the food! C'est magnifique! One very special aspect was open seating in the dining area. Meet, greet, sit and eat! We met such wonderful new friends each meal. The geography covered, history learned, friends made and food consumed made this the experience of a lifetime.
