Primarily to go to Normandy. I love history and besides Normandy it was going to see various cathedrals, crypts, area where Joan of Arc was burned to death that held my attention. Also, seeing Monet's garden was spectacular. Richard the Lion Hearted's 'unauthorized castle' was a great experience and our guide gave a great lecture of the history and how England lost it.
Actually, all our guides were great and very patient w/my continuous questions.
On board life and service was always GOOD to EXCELLENT. I had thought of hiding under a bed in order to stay, but by now Viking would have drained my credit card and I would be chained to the oars.
Viking may be the best Cruise lines at this time due to great staff, and attention to comfort plus included tours but I fear w/success will come complacency and indifference and I have noticed on some cruises a little flagging of morale. Keep the troops motivated.
Good Job, so far, Viking. See you in November 2017 for Israel & March 2018 for Egypt.
