It was our 44th Wedding Anniversary on the 18th December so my husband and I thought that the River Seine itinerary would be perfect for such a romantic occasion. As we had travelled with Viking on previous occasions, we knew that we would not be disappointed in any way. This turned out to be an accurate assumption. On arrival we were given an immediate stateroom upgrade, which was a lovely surprise. We also knew some of the staff from an earlier river cruise, so it was great to get reacquainted and hear of career successes and promotions. As expected the whole vacation went along beautifully, we were lucky to have some super weather for the month of December and our trips out to the Normandy Beaches and on another occasion to learn about Van Gogh's last days in Chalon sur Ouse was very moving. Making friends with like minded people is always easy on Viking cruises so we soon were able to find good company each evening. Our meals were scrumptious as usual with chef's suggestions always a hit so too the choices for accompanying wines. Finally, the staff, they have to be congratulated on their care and attention to every detail. They also were great fun and their attention to each individual holiymaker was something to behold. In short their contributions to our holiday made it very special. As for our anniversary evening on board, a cake was presented to our table with lots of singing and good cheer. It was really heartwarming. Thank you to Carlos and his team on Viking Rinda.

Cabin Review

French Balcony Superior
Cabin C 301
Very compact yet so well designed. Comfy bed with good linens. Great shower room, how on earth does everything fit so well!! Plenty of storage. Good size TV with a great selection of items to view.
Valetting was very good and efficient yet unobtrusive.
Very happy with it all.
