While the superb advertising initially attracted us to a Viking River Cruise, the relaxation we experienced was out of this world. The level of experience and service of all aboard had all guests smiling and talking by the end; it seemed no one wanted to go home!
From my first contact with Francisco to book our Viking River Cruise to our final farewell with Erna (our cruise director) in Paris - we felt welcomed and valued. While some may think Viking cruises are a bit pricey - they don't see all the coordination and organization that goes on behind scenes.
We didn't expect to be met at Heathrow and facilitated through that atrocious airport. We were given a bright orange pass which expedited our getting to the front of the "passenger movement" lines. Without this kid glove assistance we would surely have missed our connecting flight to Basel.
