We had heard from friends that they had really enjoyed Viking, but as first time cruisers, we had trepidations as we had always planned our own vacations and transportation. We are now hooked. From the excellent airfare and being met at ... Read more

This was our first cruise; we chose to go "Viking top of the line" because the hubby said, "Well, if we never go again, we've gone in style" ! Within two days of being on board, he was already talking of when we would ... Read more

It was a bucket list item to go to Giverny and was going to England for a tour of English gardens. Thought since I would be there so close that I would include the Paris tour. The trip was well organized, from finding the Viking Tour ... Read more

Special opportunity to see both Monet's gardens and two of the Normandy beaches. The trip was truly a 5-star hotel cruising down the river. Tours particularly of Monet's gardens and of the Normandy beaches were first class. We also ... Read more

We chose this cruise for value, itinerary, timing. We opted for the three night extension in Paris at the lovely Hotel Rochester, 2 blocks from the Champs Elysee, which was expensive but included transportation, a concierge, and a terrific ... Read more

This was our first river cruise and a disappointment after having experienced ocean cruises with Regent and Silver-sea. First impression upon arrival was that the boat appeared to be an over-sized houseboat. Our veranda suite was clean and ... Read more

We chose Viking's The Heart of Normandy in the fall in order to see Paris without the heavy tourist population of warmer weather and also to travel in Normandy. First of all, the ship's crew and the cruise director were all ... Read more
