Viking Heimdal Cruise Review by thatmakes2ofus

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom

We chose the French Provence cruise because we wanted to explore southern France and end it in Paris. Every port gave us an opportunity to see the cities and villages of France.

While giving a wonderful place to return to on board the ship. The rooms were very comfortable and the cuisine was delicious. Entertainment was entertaining. The pianist was very good. All of the staff was friendly and helpful with whatever was needed. We travel with our malienial daughter and she thoroughly enjoyed the river cruise up the Rhone and Saone. She really enjoyed the food and drinks provided by Viking. And the cuisine was geared to give everyone a taste of France. The smaller size ship gives a more intimate feeling and enables the guests to mist and mingle. She found the cruise very enriching and would definitely cruise with Viking in the further, saying it is not just a cruise for older people.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

I liked the cabin and thought the bathrooms were well thought out . Amenities were good. We love having a balcony.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The Popes palace was nice and walking the city tour was informative. The best kept secret is the gardens at the top of the mount.


We found the city was nice and coliseum which is now used for bullfighting was interesting

Beaujolais Vineyards

Nice seeing the countryside but would have been nice to stop more often to photograph the vineyards and countryside. The winery we visited was a good choice.
