This was a beautiful trip up the Rhone river from Avignon to Lyon, France.

First, the flight from the USA to France. If possible upgrade your seats and connections. We upgraded our seats to United’s economy plus, which was fairly comfortable. Wish we had upgraded our connections for a more direct flight both ways. Learned in Brussels that the common practice in Europe seemed to be to post the next connection about twenty minutes prior to the plane door closing.

Once in Marseille we were met at baggage claim by Viking staff, and shepherded to the bus for the forty minute ride to the riverboat. Unless you’re a very experienced European traveler, use the Viking transfer service at both ends of your cruise.

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Cabin D

Our cabin was a nice balcony room. Just a short walk to the restaurant and lounge.

For an ocean cruiser this is the weirdest thing. When we were moored we were literally ten feet from the town riverside walks. This took some getting used to.
