Viking Heimdal Cruise Review by Heidi and Randy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

We chose this cruise because of Viking's reputation and our desire to explore this part of France at the time offered. We were very impressed with the reliability of Viking's personnel. They met us at the Marseille airport as promised and took us promptly to the ship. We were immediately impressed by the quality of the ship.

We stayed in a French Balcony cabin and it was surprisingly roomy. Equally impressive was that every time we left the room, staff entered to clean the room or leave important material about the upcoming events. Staff were very attentive and responsive.

Dining service was always prompt, and the food is good. Staff were very attentive about beverage needs. We also enjoyed the happy hour that occurred before dinner, and the briefings by the chef about the upcoming dinner, and the announcements of the events that were available the next day.

We participated in after dinner entertainment most nights. The ports are located right in the heart of the interesting parts of the destinations, and we were free to explore them if we wanted. The shore excursions were expertly led with experienced local guides, who could not have been better. We especially appreciated the opportunities to participate in the more active shore excursions.

We have already made reservations on another Viking cruise for later this year.

French Balcony

It was surprisingly roomy and we enjoyed a big window and the opportunity to open it to the fresh air.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Avignon is a very beautiful town with many sites to see and wonderful Provencale food. We especially enjoyed the visit to the food market.


The Roman ruins were great to see. We at lunch at a restaurant that our guide recommended and it was wonderful.
