Viking Buri, 2018 Avignon to Lyon We wanted a short river cruise in France (8 days). This was a perfect start to our vacation. It provided us a time to enjoy southern France while being able to unwind from our at home activities. After the cruise we were refreshed and ready for our time in Paris. The staff on the ship was extremely attentive. We enjoyed the personal service. Our cabin steward knew exactly what our preferences were and prepared our cabin accordingly. The towns, shore excursions and meeting great people created a special experience. The shore excursions, included and optional, provided us the opportunity to learn and enjoy the towns we visited. The guides on both types of excursions were exceptional in their knowledge of the areas we toured. Viking is excellent at meeting passengers at the airports and transporting them to their hotel/ship. Also, when we flew to Paris from Lyon the Viking representative stayed with us through the whole check-in process at the Lyon airport. Those "touches" help made our start and finish to the trip was "icing on the cake."

Relaxing experience. The ship and shore excursions were perfect.

Cabin Review

French Balcony Superior
Cabin C 226
Cabin was fine. We chose French Balcony on this trip. We have decided we will only stay in a Veranda category for any future trips.
