You can’t go wrong with Viking!

This was our second River Cruise with Viking, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. As you may know, River ships are much smaller than ocean going vessels, and so they might not have as many amenities as some people might ...

Not as "wowed" as on our first Viking River Cruise

We chose this cruise mostly for the itinerary, and because we had such a great time on Viking's "Grand European". This was the first leg of "France's Finest" for us. While the trip was enjoyable, I wasn't ...

Paris to Normandy near perfection - cannot wait to travel with Avalon again

This was our first-ever river cruise. MUCH prefer the small ship experience to the big cruise ships. The Avalon Paris-Normandy trip itinerary was appealing, especially since my husband is a WWII buff. I really loved ...
