The entire staff was very friendly, helpful, remembered our names, the food was beyond expectation, the complimentary beverages were a pleasant surprise. The ports were interesting, clean, people were helpful. Monet's gardens were very lovely, quite crowded, but it flowed well. Normandy and the American cemetery was quite moving, emotional and the museum was excellent. Nice big windows in our stateroom allowed us to sight see without going on deck. Great lectures on upcoming ports, points of interest and history. We loved the entertainment. Our 1st time with Viking and we'll be back!
