My husband and I booked our once in a lifetime cruise which ended up an extremely disappointing and expensive bus trip. The rivers were high on the Rhone and we couldn't sail underneath the bridges. The previous two trips had been cancelled but ours went ahead. We were docked in Macon for five nights and went out daily on coach trips which got longer and longer. We couldn't get back for lunch so were given 20 euros each which was not equivalent to an on board lunch. We missed out on promised entertainment at night. We were taken off the ship and bussed to two different hotels (more packing and unpacking). These hotels were not equivalent to the 5 star ship (food was poor and the rooms inadequate). Passengers were sick with coughs and colds and because we were confined to long trips germs were quickly spread. The ship itself was terrific and the staff excellent. We enjoyed ship board life and were very disappointed we did not get the opportunity to fully appreciate the facilities offered. Some passengers only looked at a dock for 5 days! We ended up sailing for only about 2-3 hours in total. Scenic Tours have only offered $1000 off another trip!! This does not compensate in any way for loss of enjoyment and we are disgusted at the lack of communication. Other companies such as Viking and Avalon have offered their customers 50% refund and in some cases 50% of another trip. Read Less

We took the Eurostar to Paris, where we were transported to our awaiting boat, we were very impressed with our cabin, small but very clean and plenty of storage space. We arrived at 2.40 pm, there was a buffet lunch for us to have a snack. The food on this boat was first rate, the menu was quite varied, and for anyone who wanted something plain there was chicken and steak always available ( steaks were large and well cooked) complimentary wine served with dinner. Tea/coffee and cookies available all day. Complimentary water in your cabin, and bottles to take on shore excursions. The day we went to the Normandy Beaches was an early start, 8am and a 2-3 hour bus ride, in Arromanches we were booked into a lovely restaurant for lunch, wine included. This holiday was more or less all inclusive, a drinks package 150 euros each could be purchased, unless you are an all day drinker or perhaps like a few shorts, it would be a waste of money, we found the wine served with dinner plenty for us.The majority of our fellow passengers were American, they were all lovely and friendly and good amusing company at dinner. There are no tables for two and no seating plan, so you can sit with different people every night if you so wish.It was quite a busy holiday with a few trips with early starts organised, ofcourse if you wanted to stay on board and relax you could do so. Sitting on deck while cruising down the Seine is a splendid way to see the countryside.Our only gripe was cabin 215, there was a water pump beside it, this would run for a few mins, cut out and start up again, most nights it was switched off at midnight and start back up at 6am, earplugs are a must, but didn't drowned it out completely.The on board entertainment was a pianist/singer, pleasant to listen to, on our last night in Paris we were entertained by some local opera singers.On the whole it was an excellent holiday, and we will certainly think about taking another Viking River Cruise.
