Booked this 3 generation cruise before Viking River raised age to 18. Our 14 & 16 yr old granddaughters loved it as did our daughter and her husband (1st time cruisers). We are river cruise veterans who were blessed by having our best Cruise Director Brenton and a super (English!!!) chef Martin Carter. Everyone loved their rooms, French Balcony & Veranda. The dinners were excellent with many ...

Our cruise was wonderful! From the moment we stepped on board we were treated like royalty by the staff. We especially enjoyed Patricia, our cruise director. Her attention to us and our needs was top notch, and Viking if lucky to have her on staff. The service was excellent and we even made some friends with staff and guests! I loved the dining options...al fresco, nothing but great views, small ...

This trip was by far the best vacation my husband and I have ever taken. We added on the 3 day Paris excursion prior to departure and it made the trip even more amazing. The walking food tour is highly recommended. The rooms were more than adequately sized, the food was spectacular, and the staff onboard were all so attentive (and had a great sense of humor to boot). We did an excursion at ...

River Cruising is very different than Ocean Cruising. We have friends that say you will love one and not care for the other. This was our second Viking River and we loved it. So much so that we're looking at the Ocean Cruise itineraries. But about this cruise..... We are very interested in Impressionism - so the chance to visit Paris and the museums along with a visit at Claude's ...

This was our first river cruise and we wanted to see France, so the Paris to Normandy cruise was an attractive option. The shore excursions and the guides were wonderful. We did the optional Highlights of Paris shore excursion that included the Louvre - a good first-time experience. The watercolor painting class offered in Giverny was a great experience and started our hobby of painting. The ...

This was our third Viking River Cruise (previously did 7 day Rhine and 7 day Danube, both of which I cannot recommend highly enough). Viking does an outstanding job, somethings I wish I had taken into consideration before leaving (which are completely out of Viking's control). 1. Our cruise began on the Thursday before Easter, this led to crowds and closures at various points of our trip. 2. ...

My husband and I have taken two Holland American ocean cruises in the past, but this was our first Viking cruise. Even though we enjoyed our HA cruises and would sail with them again, we will always look at Viking first to see if they have an itinerary to meets our desires first. All the positives you have heard are true: the service was excellent and exceeded expectations, everything was very ...

We had always wanted to see France and had been receiving information on Viking tours for years without paying much attention. However almost a year before sailing, as we entered our 45th year of marriage, we started talking about what we should do for our 50th. About that time we received another brochure and realized that with advanced booking, we could see Paris and much more at a pretty ...

We wanted to try a river cruise AND enjoy a little time in Paris prior to sailing. The fact that itinerary included the opportunity to go to the beaches of Normandy was also a big decision point for us. During the tenure of this cruise we were able to walk in the footsteps of Joan of Arc, Richard the Lionhearted, Claude Monet and the greatest hero’s of WWII. To experience all that in one trip was ...

My husband and I had enjoyed one previous Viking river cruise (Danube Waltz), and we planned and booked this trip nearly 21 months in advance. I have a particular interest in World War II history and have visited Pearl Harbor several times, so I was very much looking forward to spending time at the Normandy D-Day invasion sites and the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-mer. Our good friends and ...
