Fantastic French Experience

Viking Rinda Cruise Review by Melody Mugs

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

We had wanted to visit France years ago, but didn’t speak French and felt it was asking a lot to expect the French to know English. We retired a few years ago, and decided to visit the country anyway. We thought it best to go with a proven leader in the travel industry, and my sister had recommended Viking as she had enjoyed a Viking Cruise from Holland to Hungary.

We made our reservations and then learned that my sister and 3 of her friends from Minnesota were on the same cruise (14 days in France). We had a fabulous time! Sometimes we were on the same excursions; other days, we had different experiences, but had the opportunity to share what we had experienced over a delicious dinner. We so enjoyed the leadership on the ship, as well as the staff who waited on us at dinner. We enjoyed the happy hours prior to dinner, when we learned about the next day’s activities. The evening entertainment was fun, and we enjoyed the special cooking demonstration, the French lesson, etc. As my husband needed to be in contact with research colleagues in the U.S., we were happy with the internet connection onboard.

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 210

Our room, which was two away from the lobby, was well-designed, if a wee-bit tight by the desk. We had a full window, and had the weather been warmer, we might have been able to open the window. The closet space was ample for the two of us. The bathroom was efficiently designed, and worked well for us.
