Paris Cruise Without Paris; Disappointing Sixth (and Last) Trip with Vantage
"Five previous wonderful trips with Vantage. This was very disappointing. First, after a very long wait at the airport to be taken to the ship, we had a terrible two hour bus trip to Vernon. Told that "stuff happens"..."Read More

Chose cruise to visit places we had not been before. For most part enjoyed our trip but: Buffet - hot food was cold - cold food was warm - salad bar was good. Dining room meals good Shops - lots of booze, candy, jewelry, clothes, souvenirs, etc. - first night someone asked for halls candy for sore throat - not available - week later heard same question and same response. Entertainment ...

Previous cruises with Viking We had to transfer ship to ship due to low water levels (not Vikings fault). The food was not very good and the food choices were limited. The guide on a particular excursion walked very fast and did not pay attention to the elderly people who had a very difficult time keeping up. Several of us approached him about slowing down and he continued at his pace TOO ...

First of all let me start by saying I don’t usually bother giving any reviews as I believe nothing can be absolutely perfect in life and I like being tolerant and giving the benefit of the doubt. However I do feel that our experience on the A-Rosa Viva does warrant a review, especially as an ‘educational’ exercise to non- German speaking travellers like us. Will seek to make the review as ...

We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary, especially Normandy and Paris. We frequently cruise on Celebrity, Princess and Carnival but wanted to try a river cruise. It will be our last river cruise. For one thing, our room was incredibly small, with no room to pass between the bed and the dresser area. And we are not large people. We discovered that French Veranda means no veranda. ...

I have been on many ocean cruises and I enjoyed the Amawaterways Christmas Market cruise so I expected about the same from the Viking Buri Rhone river cruise. I give the Buri's staff 5 STARS as well as all Viking tour guides, escorts etc. I paid for the transport from the airport to the hotel [I stayed a few days in Paris before the cruise] and it was money well spent! It was very easy to find the ...

We had done many European river cruises with other lines, never Scenic, and thought going to Normandy would be a great experience. I am sorry to say this line was the worst we have ever travelled with. The food was just awful! Boring, very small portions and badly cooked, almost always not served hot. The meats in the evening meals was SO overcooked as to make it almost impossible to swallow. The ...

Ports and shore excursions were the reason we chose this river cruise after attending a presentation by a Scenic. They advertise themselves as a luxury cruise line with a price tag to go with it. Breakfast buffet we understand but every day for lunch as well made it feel like a cafeteria line up for poor quality food. Our butler which came with the cruise whether you want it or not was very ...

First Viking literature said they use a pre-cruise hotel a five minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. Our hotel was on the very edge of Paris in a residential area. They sent us information about a tour they would give us of 12 of the top sites of Paris stopping to see four of them. They offered us a leader lead tour by subway to one site not in the top 20. The first day on the boat they said ...

Review for L'Austral to Arctic

The expeditions on this cruise were amazing. The scenery, the wildlife and the excursions onshore in the remote arctic were the stuff of dreams and I would do it all again. But I would do it on a different ship and with a different cruise line. This was expensive (very expensive) and was billed as '5 star luxury' but it was really at the class of the Queen Victoria (Cunard) - ie a good ...
