  3. Viking Kadlin
We were interested in seeing Paris and the Normandy Beaches. Had never been to either of the locations before. We were somewhat disappointed in Paris but enjoyed the rest of the trip immencely.The food was not quite up to par with previous experiences but it was understandable being a new ship and crew. We found the French people to not be as warm and friendly as all the residents of other countries we have visited with Viking and other tour companies. This includes Australia,China,Russia and many others.The fact that we did not dock directly in Paris was quite disappointing and resulted in wasted time commuting between the ship and the city. Maybe if we had known this before booking the trip we would have gone with a different company. Viking has too much competition these days to make these mistakes. Perhaps the ship is too large for this tour. Never the less,we will travel with Viking again if the itinerary interests us.

Lavatory improvements much appreciate. Cabin location near stairs worked out very well with respect to dining room.
