No problems, but would have liked to had the ability to take a taxi into Paris the first day I was there. As a woman travelling alone, I am not comfortable with public transportation.

This was a really bad stop. We docked an hour late. Paris and Normandy excursions were pricey and far away so we thought we would just explore the port but it was a terrible port. Turned out to be cold, windy and rainy and all there was to do is shopping and nothing to see. Very industrial. Read Less

There is a small shopping centre with a H&M and 10-15 other stores if you want to pick up sandals or a bikini last minute, but other than that its not a port I will be visiting again! Read Less

It was a Sunday, most places closed. Place seemed dull and boring, maybe we should head to the beach rather than city centre next time. There is a shuttle bus to the centre of town and shopping area from the dock costs $4 for unlimited ... Read More

Hotel was way out of the way. Only tour offered was a bus tour I should have skipped as I have been to Paris many times and could have found something better to do with my time, especially since there were no meals included.

Le Havre is the port, so we just explored here rather than do a day trip to Paris. The excursion seemed to entail hours on coaches, so we gave that a miss. Le Havre is small and quiet, but quite nice. A very industrial port, then a pleasant riverside walk to a nice square and a small shopping centre. Not somewhere to spend a day, but nice to explore/grab some food. Read Less

Loved Paris! but trans portion through ship did not give us a lot of time to spend there. We left about 2 hours after shipped cleared and got back about 2 hours before we had to. we were suppose to have 4 hour but was cut down to 3 1/2 due to stop on the way there, which could have been avoided. I would not recommend going into Paris on a day stop, stay near port and enjoy the day. Read Less

The vessel docked in Le Harve on Bastille Day. The thought of a 9-hour excursion into Paris, which was closed down in many areas due to National Celebrations, was too much for us! That said the cost of the excursions were very high - especially when one did not include lunch. I suspect we could get the train from London to paris cheaper. Therefore we stayed on the boat which was pretty empty. Had the run of the place and really enjoyed a relaxing day before departing for home. Read Less

Le Havre is pretty enough but it being Bastille Day family only ventured to the beach and wandered its avenues. Most shops and bars etc were closed so the town was fairly quiet. I remained on the ship to enjoy and relax.

If this is your first trip to Paris, book time in Paris before or after your cruise or you will be rushed to really see and enjoy it. Book it on your own for a better value (but you lose the transfers by Viking).

We went through the port town of Honfleur then on to Deauville & Pays D'Auge. It gave us another look at the French countryside and then the playground of the rich. Lots of expensive shops and a casino.

We could see the top of the Eiffel Tower from our hotel room, and we could walk there easily. We spent a day at Disneyland Paris. They have some attractions that we haven't seen at other Disney parks.
