I enjoyed the cruise very much. Even with the rioting in Paris, Viking kept everyone safe and comprimised with excursions to everyone’s satisfaction. Staff was wonderful,as was all the excursions they offered. The ceremony at Normandy Beach was very moving. I don’t have any negative comments to give about this cruise. The ports and all the sights were very enjoyable. The ship was very clean and laid out very well. The food served was excellent. The embarkation and disembarkation all was very smooth, and handled very well by the ship staff. I have sailed Viking before and have two additional cruises booked right now. I would very highly recommend Viking to anyone and everyone. I recommend both the river cruises as well as the ocean cruises. The service and ports of call are all well thought out and are offered at no cost in most instances, also the free WiFi and the beverages offered for no additional cost at meal times is a great plus.

I absolutely would recommend Viking to anyone. This cruise was spectacular. We had the large cabin, not sure i would go that big again, you really don't spend that much time in your room so you really don't need it. Gia our cruise director was fantastic. The only problem that we had was we were supposed to get early access to our cabin but we were one of the last people to get their cabins. Also when we got to the airport we didn't have a viking rep to help us through the airport and our driver dropped us at the wrong place. The food was excellent the excursions were great. We did miss one of our ports because of the yellow jacket protests. We will most certainly do a viking again. Another thing that was really cool about this cruise was there was a bunch of different age groups. Read Less

Wanted a 15 day transatlantic with northern European emphasis. Never sailed Princess and probably wont be back. 2 1/2 hours to board in Southampton in a club class mini suite. Apparently mobility issues gets u on first but that was half the ship apparently. Ship was big and maximized cabin space at the expense of ship features. No where inside to escape the throngs...the Piazza reminds me of Vegas and is loud and always packed as there is nowhere else to hangout or lounge that doesnt involve eating or drinking. Overpriced tacky shops, library was a joke, cannot walk the perimeter of the ship on any lower deck, running track is on deck 18 and closed frequently due to wind and is also in the exhaust of the stacks. Elevators are slow and packed to the point we dreaded going to lower decks. Dining was hit or miss, steak house was great...most everything else average or below. Room service was always prompt but menu poor. Buffet mostly average to poor fatty high carb choices...meats dried out and self serve tongs are a health hazard. Never go to buffet at peak eating times...people are rude pushy and oblivious, no where to sit. Cabin L107 had the forward wrap around balcony and was wonderful...cabin service excellent. Disembarkation delayed and misplaced one bag...just hire a car to the airport as the bus transfer was painfully slow and people standing about blocking the unloading of bags. Overall we enjoyed the stops and room and had a good time once we learned how to avoid the throngs, bad entertainment and geriatric oriented events. Gym on this ship was remarkably good. Wont do another Princess cruise...so many better offerings. Read Less

It was advertised as a cruise to remember and it was,the service was impeccable the crew were most helpful,Val was great always there to help and advise.the wines were great as was the great coffee.shamethe captains speech on the last night was so abrupt cheers and that was it.hardly worth waiting for.it was the only time I saw him speak,The only problem we found, was the food was not very satisfactory not hot enough, often over cooked,plus the portion size was minuscule,we have had many trips including the orient express,silver seas,but none served up such small portions,haveing said all this we enjoyed the the ambience and the fellow passengers, th cabins were ok ,the bed most comfortable,tv selection was good,and the ships information. Was very good,embarkation was faultless,as was disembartion,cabin crew were very good,seen but not heard,the waiting staff and bar staff were all most helpful and polite, nothing was to much trouble the were a good team. a/c was perfect,and where the ship docked was always a place close enough to walk to town,which we did at every opportunity.

This is our 4th River Cruise and have enjoyed everyone. No pressure and staff are great looking after your needs. The meals on board are always great and there is a wonderful variety of foods for all taste. Our Butler always made special attention to our requirements and on this cruise like the past we arranged for afternoon tea with friends in our room most days so we could enjoy a relaxing afternoon. Normally we would have 2 other couples with us make 6 which is the right size. Port and Shore excursions met our needs as per the documentation. The tour guides are especially good and imparted their knowledge of the varies tourist sites. Ship - Scenic Diamond is always spotless and the staff look after all on board. The Cruise Directors are interesting people who manage the impossible and seem to exceed your expectations - wonderful managers of the customers, guides and buses etc. We feel very confident in Scenic to deliver and they do. We have already booked 2 river cruises for 2017 and the new Discovery for 2019. Read Less

Lovely experience through out our stay...the food on board was excellent and varied...the service on board, (room service, in the restaurant or in the lounge was number one, always very polite, friendly and devoted. The choice of the various shore excursions was also very interesting and always instructive historicly speaking. The only improvement that I would suggest is regarding the television stations that were made available; they were only in English and as french speaking passengers (even if we do speak english very well) and since we were in France we would have appreciate to have at least one french speaking network. We have also enjoy very much the evening entertainment on the ship. Even if we had reserve a standard room cabin we think that the size was reasonable and the two bed were quite confertable. The instructions given for every disembarkation weer always quite clear (time for visiting and to return on time to the ship, etc) Read Less
