We enjoyed vacationing in the South of France on our second Viking River Cruise, so much! We went in June and had great weather for walking around medieval villages, old time cities, and wine and lavender countrysides that are so rich in history and as if frozen in time. The tours (both included and optional) covered historical sites and moments presented by local tour guides that were both interesting and fun.
Viking staff really take care of their guests and add special touches that left us feeling appreciated as guests.
The concierge was very helpful. The Viking staff that handles the transfers were also very helpful, especially when our luggage didn’t arrive and we were trying to figure out what to do in an airport where the staff didn’t speak English.
The French balcony D cabins are small, but well-appointed rooms. The bed/bedding is very comfortable; the bathroom has a heated floor and a powerful shower with plenty of hot water. The room staff were always prompt and made the room look like it did upon arrival each day we were there.
