I chose this trip for three reasons. First, I wanted to see Paris. Second, I wanted to see the Normandy Beaches of D-Day fame. And third, I wanted to take a river cruise after taking many ocean cruises. I was not disappointed. I took the 3 day pre-cruise extension in Paris that was wonderful. We had a great hotel off the Champs Elyse's and a great Viking host to help us with an included tour. The crew on the ship was wonderful and took care of everything. The food was exquisite. I went with my best friends from church. He served in the navy and our standing on Omaha beach and touring the cemetery was inspiring. I also toured the Versailles Palace, Napoleon's Palace, Rommel's headquarters during the D-Day invasion and painter Monet's home and pond which was so amazing to see in person.. This is a dream trip of a life time.
Just FYI, but children are not permitted on Viking cruises. This was my first river cruise.
