My sister-in-law and I took this trip in September. Viking representative was looking for us when we arrived in Paris, and after that they took wonderful care of us. The ship does show wear but I understand it is being retired. The staff could not have been nicer. Our room was always spotless. Dinner was served at 7 but that was okay for us. I am not a wine snob but the included wine with ...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip along the Seine up to Normandy--at least until the Norovirus started hitting the passengers. I estimate that 10-25% of the passengers got sick at some point and their was NOTHING on board to alleviate any symptoms. It was like we're all on our own. Infection rate could have been higher or lower because virtually nothing was said by the staff publicly and I ...

The cruise itself was excellent as is the expectation for Viking. The food was superb and gourmet and the service was top notch as well....however, the ship was tired and it was obvious it was the last season before it was to be retired. A lock was not functioning so we were bussed and embarked at Vernon...none of this was Viking's fault...we assumed we would be returning to Paris the ...

The trip on the Seine was wonderful. The crew was very attentive and went above and beyond the call of duty when my husband became ill. Our cabin steward was outstanding. The food service was impressive and the selection of dishes left few wanting. We enjoyed the small villages that we stopped at. I do believe that Giverny and Monet's garden was one of our favorites, although our visit to ...

This was my first time to Paris and taking a River Cruise. It was fantastic! Everyone on the ship was so nice and helpful. Lionel the Program Director was so informative and helpful and he worked so hard to make the cruise a great experience. It was obvious that he loved working for the Viking Cruise and went out of his way to make the cruise enjoyable. Lionel was so knowlegable about the ...

It was our second cruise with Viking and we decided on France's Finest. Almost everything was wonderful : the cruise director Nico was exceptional, the crew was friendly and we had top notch service, the food and dining room service were very good and the excursions were well planned. The weather could have been better and the ship was on the old side, I was disappointed with our cabin. I had ...

Age 60s

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on the Seine. Although the Neptune is an older ship which has to show its age and without the "flash" of newer vessels -- we had traveled on a sister ship four years ago so we new what to expect. However, in some ways, I liked the smaller size of the Neptune. The public areas easily accommodated the passengers without crowding. There were more smaller, round ...

Vikings service is the very best we have ever experienced from a cruise company. The close up tours of the ports felt like we were part of the community. Every port was so unique. Visiting Monet's residence and the Water lily pond was such a treat. Of course Normandy was very moving seeing how history was made and honoring all the people who gave their all for our freedom. ...

Enjoyed Paris/Normandy very, very much. Every moment of the cruise was superb. Each day was perfect. Every one of the "crew" - personable, knowledgeable, patient, extremely helpful. Tour buses, guides - the best. Every day was exciting, educational, enjoyable. The waiters at each meal were very friendly, pleasant - anxious to serve with a smile. Went out of their way to serve anything we ...

This was our first river cruise and it was extremely enjoyable. We took the pre-cruise stay in Paris and this enabled us to see all of the extra sights we were interested in visiting. The overall experience was great, we would have liked to have had more detailed information about the various excursions in Paris before we left, we saw some of the sight on our own and then duplicated them on the ...
