We went on this as we had a real interest in going to Normandy, This was our first Viking River cruise (I had been on a Viking Ocean but the other 3 in our group had not). The included excursions were amazing. We only did one optional one, the trip to Versailles, and it was good also, although not quite as well organized as the free ones, surprisingly enough. On the Normandy battlefield excursion, our 4 were the only ones on the ship to do the Commonwealth battlefields. We did this as we had a trip to the American ones on our own after the cruise. I am so glad we did this as we also got to see the Bayeux tapestry and the amazing Pegasus bridge (highlighted in the film The Longest Day). Out Viking supplied guide was very good and when it came time for us to sing a national anthem from one of the Commonwealth countries, since as Americans, we didn’t know any, our guide sang Le Marseille for us. This was at the cemetery and really was moving.

We loved everything about the cruise and will def go on another Viking river cruise. And Mia- our cruise director- was unbelievably helpful and entertaining.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

We had originally paid for the cheapest cabin. When we got on and learned the ship had extra cabins, we asked if we could pay to upgrade and moved to a balcony cabin. The weather wasn’t warm enough to use the balcony but it was still nice to have.

Port Reviews

Rouen

Rouen is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. We took the included walking tour and then walked around more on our own. It is just delightful
