  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

This was our second Viking River Cruise. We loved this one as much as the first!! Viking takes such good care of you from the moment they pick you up at the airport until you return to the airport. Monet's Gardens in Giverney was my favorite on this cruise. The day in Normandy was so moving!!

The Viking staff is second to none. They do everything in their power to ensure you have a fabulous vacation.

The food is wonderful. The wine selections with dinner every night were perfect. The fact that Viking includes the cost of soft drinks, wine and beer at lunch and dinner is a major plus.

We had one minor disappointment on this cruise. We expected to be docked near the Eiffel Tower in Paris. However, the Rinda is relatively new and Viking has not yet received the necessary permits to dock in the city yet. We were docked about 45 minutes outside the city. Viking did everything they could to ensure we still saw Paris. I would suggest anyone looking at this itinerary take one of the Viking ships that is permitted to dock in Paris if wandering around Paris is very important to you.

Overall this was a fabulous trip!!

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Our cabin was fine. It had everything we needed, including a mini refrigerator, U.S. Plugs and a great bathroom. The room was serviced twice a day. The stewards did a fabulous job every day.
