Went on the cruise to learn more about Provence. On the shore excursions enjoyed some of the small villages and talks about pdroducing essential oil of lavender and producing of wine in Burgundy. We were fortunate with the weather since it was originally hot and then a cold front for the rest of the trip. Learn a great deal about the history of the region, including influence of Greeks, Romans ...

Age 70s

I have traveled other European rivers with Viking, but had never been on the Elbe so was eager to return to Prague and head north to Berlin on the Elbe. The boat was great, the good was excellent (and plentiful), the tour director was amazing, and the weather mostly cooperated. The stop in Litomerice was a disappointment and I would have liked to have had more time in Meissen, but other than ...

We chose this cruise specifically for the itinerary and it was the third time we have taken this particular cruise.The crew is always helpful and the staff go out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time. We took a couple of complimentary tours and chose additional tours which went to places we had not seen before. We enjoyed all of them. The food was wonderful and we always enjoy ...

My wife and I had done Viking's "Romantic Danube River Cruise" from Budapest to Nuremberg in November, 2011, and the "Rhine River Getaway Cruise" from Basel to Amsterdam in November 2012. We thoroughly enjoyed both cruises- the sights, the shore options, the great food, and outstanding professionalism of the crew. We were treated as if we were royalty! The weather that time of year, though, left a ...

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 ...

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 ...

Age 40s

For context we are a couple in our mid forties who have taken many ocean cruises. We took the "France's Finest" trip which is two 1 week itineraries combined. This is a review of Paris and the Heart of Normandy on the Viking Neptune. When we were on the ship we were mainly pleased because we had nothing to compare it to, but after our second week on the Heimdal we can see that the Neptune has ...

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 ...
