Viking Heimdal Cruise Review by duke3200

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

We chose this cruise expecting an experience commensurate with TV and brochure hype.

Big mistake. Instead we experienced tandem docking with no river views. We expected leisurely dinners with regional French cuisine. Big mistake, the dining experience was a big disappointment and food quality was not so good. The food service at dinner was rushed and noisy.

My wife and I have been on more than 30 trips on many cruise lines and for the cost of this trip we expected much more.

The hotel service was very nice and the cabin adequate. The shore excursions terrific and guides were very knowledgeable.

Our post cruise hotel stay in Paris was excellent which included free tours. I purchased tickets on line for a private tour of the Louvre which was also a memorable experience.

The entertainment on board was non existent unless you are a drinker.

We did NOT have a romantic river view cruise through southern France.
