We had a fabulous time. I was not sure what to expect as we had not been on a river cruise before, but it met and exceeded my expectations. Dining, accommodations, staff and excursions were all great.

Relaxing vacations.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Just came back from Normandy cruise on Viking Pride. Did not know what to expect, previously took only ocean cruises. The first impression was the shock of how old and drabby this boat was. Badly needs refurbishing and brighter interior design. We came to Paris with an early flight, Viking rep was there, did not have to wait for a long time, they drove us to the boat, wich is parked about 20 min from Paris center. Our room was not ready and we waited in the lounge, they have good coffee machine and fresh pastries every morning, if you don't wish to go to the restaurant for breakfasts On the speakers they mostly have Sinatra, and at the lounge at night, one guy plays piano and sings. Also mostly American music. I would have liked to listen to Piaff or Aznavour, to feel more in France. We took short nap, and went along the Siene to Eiffel Tower, just 10 min of easy walk. Next day we took the tour of the city, it was great, came back to the ship, had lunch and went back to the center of Paris. Paris is very easy to enjoy by foot, the river and Bridges will not let you to get lost. Have the map with you. The itinerary was nice, we always wanted to go to Rouen, to see Cathedral, it is spectacular! Do not miss light show, unforgettable sight! The food was OK. Stuff is great. On the board, is not much to do, quite boring, but I compare  this cruise with Ocean cruises, splendid ships, shows, bars, restaurants, dancing, tons of activity and if you want to go inside some country to see charming country sides and lovely towns, river cruises is a good way to do it. Also, about 95 percent of passengers are older people, I can understand the popularity of this cruises. It is easy and relaxing as you get to see a lot, sometimes 2 towns in one day. If I go again, I definitely would take a newer boat.

p Seeing Europe on the Viking...

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
p Seeing Europe on the Viking Pride was absolutely WONDERFUL. We were met at the airport and taken to our ship. We unpacked in a stateroom that was better than we had imagined. After unpacking we were set for u14/u days. Each day our program director, Michael, gave us an overview of what we would be experienceing and seeing. We would start the day with a walking tour of the city we were docked at. Each guest had a receiver so that we could always hear our guide. We were also given free time in each city to shop or go to museums, etc. We always had a map available of the area to find things and make our way back to the ship. Our guides were outstanding. The places we visited were beautiful and gave us a real feel for the country we were in. The food on board was excellent. There were about 150 guests and we had free seating. That way we got to know quite a few different people. When we were crusising, the views were spectacular. When we got to the Rhine Valley and there were castles at every turn, we had someone on the PA system to tell us what we were passing. My husband thoroughly enjoyed getting up a daybreak and watching the scenery go by. All in all this was one of the greatest trips we could have imained.
