Chose this cruise because of the itinerary, previous experience with Viking, and friends who wanted to go. We (the 4 of us) could not have been more pleased with Viking. Appreciated their meeting us at the airport, and transportation to the ship, then the welcome as we boarded. All elements of the cruise were exemplary: the food (quality, selection, quantity), service (ALL Viking staff were terrific, in every way), facilities (cabin, lounge, dining room all wonderful), excursions (well-planned, excellent guides, etc.). Viking’s departure assistance at CDG was greatly appreciated. Special kudos for the extensive and thorough planning for all the passengers’ departures - Viking could have easily provided ‘mass transit’ but, instead, arranged timely and personalized departures - far more complicated (and expensive) than necessary. Suggestions: Would appreciate a fitness area, with a treadmill or elliptical machine for onboard exercise (track on sun deck only usable for walking, not jogging). Would have liked to have more time at the American Cemetery visitor’s center when we visited Normandy (enjoyed the wreath-laying ceremony, though). Missed seeing Point-du-hoc, which wasn’t on the schedule (footnote: guide told us there had been some recent ground damage on the site). All in all, an outstanding trip - we are very grateful to Viking for their expertise and professionalism. THANK YOU!

Veranda Stateroom

Small, of course, but very comfortable - had everything we needed. Excellent shower, which was appreciated.
