The crew, the people, the cruise, the personal touches, the focus on service and beautiful Paris. If you don't try Viking, you will never know true dedication and service. My wife and i have been on 30+ cruises, all different cruise lines, from 5 star, white glove service to the discounted, middle of the road cruise ships. Overall, Viking hits all the right notes and blows away many of the much higher priced cruise lines. From the reservation service to airline help and directly to the crew on the ship, everyone is caring and helpful.

The cruise is high energy, interesting and non-stop, if you want that experience. OR--lay back and enjoy. 5 star food, great wines and plenty to eat all day long. Each port was more intersting then the last. Normandy was heart wrenching, Paris was enchanting. Monets' gardens were breathtaking.We got handshakes and hugs as we left the ship on our last day-much like family leaving for a while. The crew actually escorted us directly to the check-in desk at the airport. Bring a larger pair of pants-you will need them. LASTLY-GO-TRY-DO AND ENJOY

Cabin Review

Standard Stateroom

Cabin E

a bit small, but we booked last minute, got a 2 for 1 fare with free airfare. If you are going to stay in your cabin for anything but sleep, why go on vacation. Everything was fine. I am a bigger guy, and the cabin was not really cramped. Great amenities, wonderful soaps and various cremes, etc..

Port Reviews

Paris

you really need 7 days, not 7 hours to see the Louvre but a great synopsis and very educational tour

Paris

plenty of great French wine, great tastings and a happy, semi-drunk finish to our excellent adventure
