We chose this itinerary as we wanted to preface it with 5 nights on our in Paris. We paid the surcharge to have Viking handle the air arrangements. Be sure you check everything! On the return, Viking air desk had us with a 6 hour layover after an 8 hour transatlantic flight! I checked and there was an earlier flight with only a 95 minute layover. I insisted they make the change and they did. And we easily made our connection.

We had a French balcony. The room, although small ( 150sq ft) was well designed. Housekeeping was 2x a day and was wonderful. The ship was not full. I believe there were about 90 guests. It felt like a private yacht. The food was excellent and varied enough. The chef gave a little presentation each evening about the menu. Crew was always around and helpful. The evening entertainment was a lovely pianist. There was one guest lecturer.

Ports: the walking tour on Lyon was excellent. Skip the Beaujolais winery. Basically a bus ride to cave. We enjoyed the all day tour to Ardeche. But It was to include a tour of the lavender farms - but no lavender! The lavender had been harvested the week before. So we toured barren fields and the obligatory souvenir shop.

Cabin Review

Small, but well laid out. We had enough storage. There are floor to ceiling Windows that open. We did not miss an actual balcony as the weather Althea pleasant wasn’t warm enough.
