Great First River Cruise

Sail Date: September 20, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cabin: 215

We were very pleased and surprised at how much we enjoyed River cruising.  There was always something to view along our journey.  The staff was very helpful and pleasant and available with answers to many questions.  Our dining experiences were beyond our expectations and always presented with a smile.  Our cabin was more than adequate with plenty of storage space. All in all a great experience with Viking.  We look forward to our next Viking cruise.Happy 

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Location of ship was not visible from street high above the dock. A sign or flag on the street would have made embarkation easier. Not every taxi driver knows where the docks are. The email notification of the location change mentioned the Quai, but was not specific enough.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
The tour guide in Avignon was well below the standard set by the other guides on our trip.
Onboard Activities

Nicolas our Program Director was always available and pleasant.
