Viking Rinda Cruise Review by cgunning

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony Superior

We planned this cruise as a commemoration of my late father-in-law's D-day service. My husband had spoken of taking such a trip for several years and we finally decided to just do it. So happy we did. As someone who finds war disturbing on every level, I must admit the Normandy Beaches outing was surprisingly moving. The sincere appreciation demonstrated by the French people is touching, as was the reaction of many of our fellow travelers. With Viking taking care of all the logistics, we were able to relax and appreciate the experience. The dining was exceptional, with outstanding menu selections tailored to the regions we were traveling through, as well as attentive staff to keep us fed and entertained all at the same time. All in all, the Viking experience has spoiled us, and we're looking forward to determining where we should go next. The warmth of the staff and fellow travelers made all our original reservations melt away and we would highly encourage anyone who is "one the fence" to just jump in and try it. We are so happy we did.

Cabin Review

French Balcony Superior
Cabin C 328

A bit tight as was expected for a ship. However, we spent very little time in the room, so it wasn't a big distraction. Enjoyed the sliding door that allowed up to open the cabin to the river and enjoy the French countryside as we floated up/down the Seine.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Monet at Giverny Gardens

We had lovely weather and enjoyed the opportunity to get out and walk around in the fresh air and sunshine. Beautiful grounds.

The guided walking tours were very informative. Suggest that the location of working restrooms be more thoroughly evaluated/coordinated as a herd of older folks can create quite a line. Found the locals to be welcoming and eager to share their village with us as we ventured out on our own after the walking tour concluded.

Cathedral of Rouen

The majesty of the cathedrals throughout the trip was overwhelming.
