First Class experience from the time we arrived in Paris until departure. The Viking staff was excellent, the food was excellent, the excursions were excellent. You had the feeling that they were happy you were with them and tried their best to meet your every need. One of the service highlights was the transfer to the airport from the ship to depart for home. There was a Viking representative on the coach as well as one waiting at the airport to personally take to our departure gate. This was an unexpected service but one that was greatly appreciated by all. This was the first trip on Viking for my wife and I and it will not be the last. We met and talked with several fellow travelers who had been on multiple Viking experiences and all spoke of how wonderful and memorable the trips had been. This was our 45 anniversary trip and we will never forget it!
