This was a great opportunity to see Paris and Normandy in one trip. The crew was exceptional; they were all attentive to every need. From the staff who maintained the cleanliness of the cabins to the wait staff they were on their mark every day. It was also great to see the Captain frequently walking the ship and connecting with passengers. The highlight of our cruise was our Cruise Director, Mia. She definitely made the trip a positive and entertaining one. The excursions were well planned and the guides were all exceptional and informative. The food was French (obviously) and you had to enjoy French food to appreciate. The pre-trip was an opportunity to view additional sights in Paris. The hotel where we stayed (Hotel Scribe) was convenient to so many sights in Paris. Our hotel Viking representative, Florence, made all our reservations and gave suggestions for additional opportunities and sights. Florence made sure that our visit met all our requirements. This was the vacation of a lifetime.

Cabin Review

The cabin was clean and gave enough space. The balcony was a plus for a river trip.

Port Reviews


Awesome! It rained during our visit (how appropriate). The mood was somber and the sight was one we will never forget.


This was truly a city to remember. There was so much to do and the Parisians couldn't have been nicer. We could have spent weeks here and not see everything. For dining you have to visit Cafe de la Paix near the Opera House. The Hotel Scribe was convenient to so many sights in Paris and was exceptional.
