Aquavit Terrace with carols playing quietly in the background - gorgeous!

Lunch onboard, as we float by on the Seine.
The Aquavit Terrace is warm and inviting on a cold December afternoon.

We really wanted to visit Normandy Beach and cemetery because of the history. The scenery was a bonus! As always, Viking takes GREAT care of all of its passengers - fantastic food, great customer service, very reliable transportation, fully-stocked bar, shore excursions, transportation to & from the airport, etc. The crew - bar, dining, cruise director, ALL of them - did a great job! We ...

We planned this cruise as a commemoration of my late father-in-law's D-day service. My husband had spoken of taking such a trip for several years and we finally decided to just do it. So happy we did. As someone who finds war disturbing on every level, I must admit the Normandy Beaches outing was surprisingly moving. The sincere appreciation demonstrated by the French people is touching, as ...

We wanted to experience Paris and all of the history in the area. We thought a river cruise was the best way to accomplish this. We were not disappointed! Museums, castles, palaces were fabulous. Normandy was emotional. Wish you held the Paris at night tour earlier in the week because people are preparing to leave early the next morning. Each stop had a great tour and lots of information about the ...

We had received brochures from Viking for several years, but until we both retired we didn’t take them “seriously”. Once we made the decision to book a cruise we researched the options, spoke with friends who had taken Viking trips and chose the Rinda Cruise along the Seine. The trip was beyond our expectations...the food, the accommodations, the attention to detail. We felt so comfortable on the ...

We are experienced ocean cruisers, but this was our first river cruise. We were originally scheduled on the Danube on Avalon. Due to low water levels, Avalon offered a refund which we accepted and chose this Seine trip on Viking instead. We were very pleasantly surprised by Viking, having heard some negatives, but we were so impressed we have booked our Danube trip on Viking for next year and hope ...

Viking gave impeccable service as usual, the ship was clean, cabin comfortable and warm,and the staff friendly and efficient.Excellent cuisine, with staff very accommodating with my food intolerances. Our shore excursions were well planned, although we would have liked a a little more free/explore time in some of the quaint towns. We did the extension tour to the Loire valley, our guide was ...

I experience severe motion sickness due to an inner ear disorder. Goin on a cruise was never something I ever considered. Friends asked us to go with them on the Viking River cruise from Paris to Normandy. As my husband is a student of history and I an artist and it was our fortieth anniversary we agreed. I had my trepidation's due to my motion sickness but was willing to try. All I have to ...

A friend and I were invited to join other friends who were taking the Viking Rinda cruise on the Seine October 3rd. I loved the itinerary. The food was delicious and especially enjoyed the dining option off the bar area.the Aquavit buffet and terrace. The ship was spotless and the staff were always friendly and helpful. Our stateroom was tiny but we were not in there much. One night I stayed after ...

We Choose this cruise because of the mix of history, art and scenery. We were not disappointed. Each day was a new adventure. Mornings as we cruised on the river were sublime. The fog gave the scene a magical feeling. The places we stopped at were picturesque and historical. Each stop was led by a knowledgeable and friendly guide. They not only explained the historical and cultural significance ...
