Wanted a quiet relaxing experience, but not boring. the ship, crew, food, programs made it entertaining and stimulating while the scenery relaxed you and the sites immersed you and taught you history. Overall a well rounded experience. Everything went smoothly and appreciated the staff caring for one guest at a time, even in the group excursions. The facilities were comfortable and cruising was gentle. only problem was when another ship would park next to ours and we would lose the view and some privacy. The food was very good, good variety and reflected the region and country. The entertainment completed well the day experience. The included shore excursions were very didactic and made interesting by the tour guides. They were appropriate and we did not go on any optional tours. We had not been to that area of France previously and were pleased with the choice as well as with the time of year. The Spanish performers were great. Read Less

We extended the cruise by staying 3 days in Paris before boarding our ship in Lyon. We had a wonderful time revisiting sites and dining at wonderful restaurants. Viking arranged for a high speed train to take us to Lyon where boarding the ship was a breeze. The staff was very accommodating and the food was excellently prepared and delicious. We sailed that night and each day was at a different city/ town along the river. The guides were very knowledgeable and it was so easy to follow along with the head sets provided each person. The ship had entertainment at night that enhanced the experience. One night we took a tour of a town we were stopped at and went to the top of a hill to see the view by night. It was magical. Overall it was a wonderful and charming excursion that we would recommend to other cruisers. Read Less

A friend who had traveled with Viking was going and recommended it. I was very impressed with both my onboard experience as well as the planned excursions. Onboard life was very nice. The room was comfortable, the food excellent, and staff commendable. I really enjoyed the excursions and appreciated the knowledgeable tour guides in each port. They all provided excellent historical and local information for each place visited. I also appreciated the relaxed ambiance of onboard life. Having traveled on a larger cruise line, I especially enjoyed the smaller more intimate setting of the Viking river cruise. Excursions I especially enjoyed were to Perouges, a middle town, a trip to a winery near Lyon, and Avignon. I was not disappointed with any of the excursions, and I appreciated that each day passengers had trips that were included in the cruise. Both embarkation and disembarkation were well managed. I was somewhat unhappy with a disembarkation time early in the morning, night really. However, the staff made the process as painless as possible and even had someone at the airport to assist us. All in all, I was definitely impressed enough with my trip that I look forward to future Viking cruises. Read Less
