  3. Viking Kadlin
For a very long time I have wanted to visit Monet's house and garden at Giverny and the visit was well worth the wait , even the the weather was unseasonably hot. Also had an unforgettable day at the Normandy beaches. The ceremonies there was so reverent and respectful to the heroes of that campaign who should never be forgotten. It was our first Viking cruise and it was nearly flawless from start to finish. It won't the last as Viking exceeded our expectations at every turn. The service level couldn't be better as the entire staff was accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. We are very seasoned (50 years) travelers and both the tours and the guides were the best we have ever experienced. Every day was interesting and unique from the others. My wife has a medical issue that necessitates a rigid diet at all times. The maitre'd and his staff went above to ensure her needs were met while providing excellent meals all of the time. The only negative was we had to catch an early (0700) flight From Paris to London for a connection to return to the states.

Almost flawless
