Viking Heimdal Cruise Review by rcochran

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Explorer Suite

This was our fourth Viking river cruise, this one traveling the Rhône River from Avignon to Lyon. Each river cruise has been very different due to the location, theme, and staff. All have been excellent. The Heimdal is a typical Viking longboat: spacious, inviting, spotlessly clean, and well run. Food on this cruise was outstanding.we had the pleasure of being upgraded to one of the two explorer suites on board, and we could not have been happier. Our cruise director was Lorin, whom we met on our first cruise in Bourdeau, and he is outstanding. Local guides were excellent. We particularly enjoyed the optional excursions to Chateauneuf de Pape, including a visit to Chateau Beaucastel, and the full-day excursion to the Ardeche region. Avignon is a great small town for walking...shopping is great. Arles was quite interesting, and we enjoyed lunch on our own at L’Entrevue, recommended by Viking. We highly recommend that restaurant. Loved Lyon, great city, like Paris, but clean.

Cabin Review

Explorer Suite

Huge with large living room, separate bedroom, and very spacious bathroom, including very big shower. Lots of amenities, including in-room coffee maker, fridge re-stocked daily, free laundry, and Silver Spirits liquor package. Could not have asked for better.
