First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My husband and I celebrated our 40+1 wedding anniversary aboard the AmaLyra. What a wonderful experience!! From the moment we boarded, it was a first class event. The crew was amazing, friendly, charming and knowledgeable. Meals were delicious and presented beautifully, paired with ideal wines to match. The tours each day were an event to look forward to, and the guides took very good care ...

Just returned from our first River Cruise which was also our first trip to France. We sailed on Viking Radgrid which is brand new to the Viking fleet. The ship was to have launched in 2020 but was delayed due to Covid. We flew to Paris on 10/1/21 for a three day precruise stay. Our hotel was nicely located near the Arc de Triumph. We loved the three days which gave us time to tour the ...

A beautiful ship with a excellent staff. We were in a suite. Although by necessity small, the room is very well thought out. Large windows make up for the lack of a balcony. You can control just about everything (tv, lights, windows) from your bed. Very comfortable bed. Excellent shower. Service was top notch. Plenty of staff around and always willing to help. There were only 56 guests on our ...

Originally, we booked this second Viking cruise for my hubby's retirement cruise! But with the state of the world ... we were postponed & postponed ... but it all worked out perfectly anyways! The crew of the Idi was so perfectly welcoming and the boat was extremely safe & clean! We were all required a vaccination, masks were required & everyone was tested daily ... all of the tours were very ...

My husband and I gave our travel agent an impossible list of criteria for a special vacation to celebrate our 20th anniversary. (We are both in our 70s but very active and fit.) Chip suggested Uniworld’s SS Joie de Vivre… lots of activity and history for my husband, lots of glamour and luxury for me, excellent food and service for us both. I was delighted to go to Paris (my husband not so ...

Did not know what to expect with Viking. Very pleasantly suprised. Our inital docking in Paris had a great view of the Eifel Tower, and as it got dark out, it was quite a beautiful sight lit up. The food was very good, with a good variety for everyone (there was 7 of us). On buffet night, I would have made reservations at a good restaurant, as it was below par. The staff were extremely helpful and ...

Poor Dining

Review for Viking Herja to Europe - All

User Avatar
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Meals served late after 7:30 pm. and we were hungry before meals. No healthy food was available for snacks. Limited dinner menus with few vegetables. Even salads were just a few bites and a sprig of decoration. Husband said he had one decently prepared meal, that was just mediocre. Little to no entertainment. No fitness room or pool. Tiny cabin with uncomfortable bed. Guides sometimes great ...

Paris during the 2019 strike: complicated, beautiful and worth it

Review for Viking Rinda to Europe - All

We chose this itinerary mostly to see Paris, but the other ports were quite wonderful, too. This sailing left from Paris during the great Strike of December 2019, which added some unexpected drama to the tale and certainly caused inconvenience for everyone in France at that time. Despite it all, Paris was magnificent and Viking made the entire voyage as enjoyable and convenient as they could, ...

Our group of eight senior citizens arrived in Paris on the day before the cruise started. This gave us time to see a bit of the city, enjoy a relaxing dinner near our hotel, and get a little rest before we left on the cruise. We were picked up and taken to the ship, where we had lunch. Our cruise directors arranged for taxi service and we spent the afternoon at the Arc de Triomphe. When we ...

We had done the Danube on a previous trip. The decision to choose Paris and the heart of Normandy was my husband’s wish to visit the Normandy beaches. It was a good decision. There was lots of interesting tours, both included and optional. As expected, everything was perfect. Even though a first impression is the cabin is small, it works! The layout is efficient, it may take a bit of ...
