Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Large Window

This trip was for me a check on a long held item on my bucket list. I have been to France, Paris and the area just north of the Pirineos, before. But, as a former history teacher, there was a great desire to sail north on the Seine and visit Normandy and especially the area of the D Day invasion.

From the first minute at Charles De Gaulle, the Viking staff was wonderful in gathering us as a group and getting us on our way to the ship. The ship was delightful, the cabin was well looked after and the service was superb. The staff did so many little extras that it was wonderful, from the warm beverage when we returned from a tour to the towel bunny and Easter eggs in the cabin on Easter Sunday.

The cruise on the Seine and the stops that we made were all interesting and historically speaking very meaningful. To visit the Normandy beaches on Easter Sunday was so moving and Viking providing the flowers for us to place at the graves and the ceremony at the American cemetery was very emotional. Viking even provided an alternate tour for those passengers from the Commonwealth countries. I wish I could have taken that one also.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Large Window

Cabin A

While this was one of the older ships, we felt that it was well maintained and superiorly cleaned. We had all the amenities needed to enjoy our trip and were very comfortable. We loved the long ship from our first trip, but knew in advance that this was an older one and we wanted the add on to Oxford and that was our trade off so we felt that the cabin was more than adequate and were quite happy with the space, the bath, etc.
