Sail Date: Sep 2023

I wanted to share my impressions of our first River Cruise with Viking while it was still fresh in my brain.

We chose the Swiss Alps to Paris in September because the 12 day excursion seemed just the right length to decide whether this mode of travel would be right for us. Turns out, it was perfect and left us yearning for more.

From the moment we stepped off of the plane in Zurich, Switzerland, we were shepherded by the local guides to our bus with schedules and suggestions for our time in Zurich. The amount of free time to explore the city was perfect. The hotel was hip and clean and efficient and the complimentary breakfast was delicious! We loved cruising Lake Zurich and eating fondue at the local Swiss Kitchen restaurant. Following our two days in Zurich, we were bussed to Basel to begin our River cruise.

Cabin Review

We stayed in a French Balcony Stateroom. Small but efficient use of space. It was kept very neat & tidy.

We loved looking out our windows while going through the locks.
