Outstanding vacation by lmahar99

We really enjoyed everything about our Viking River cruise. The staff was attentive and went out of their way to exceed our expectations.  The tour guides were fun  and knowledgable and added so much substance to everything we were seeing. Our tour director was marvelous, and I never saw him without a smile on his face. It was an excellent experience and  my husband and I are looking forward to booking another Viking Cruise in the future. Viking has picked the right person for every single job on the ship!

A real pleasure by ehart48

The Normandy beach day is very special.  Monet's garden in Giverny was a knock out.   Paris will always be Paris!!!

The Program director and crew were outstanding, very high quality of service and cleanliness.  The food was the best of any of the river cruises we have been on.

It was a real pleasure to sit on the upper deck as you watched the world pass by.

The climb to the castle ruins in Les Andelys was much harder for anyone who lacks stamina or has heart problems.

great fun by Cruiser803

The boat was very comfortable and the staff was excellent: friendly, helpful, courteous,and fun.

 

They made necessary changes to our trip because of Seine flooding.  They went "ALL OUT" to get us to our scheduled places with ease.  The river caused the crew to work hard with unexpected weather and logistics problems but they did a fine job of this.

Great boat, terrible itinerary by leewhite

Of the 7 days, three were good. Normandy, Giverney, and the day of Lourve and Versalles. The other 4 days were pretty boring. Ship is good, crew is outstanding but I would not recommend the itinerary.  

We got a last minute email from Viking telling us that the embarkation point was not in Paris as advertised but in LePecq, 35 miles outside of Paris. Turns out, according to some of the crew, they've been using LePecq for months. If it wasn't for the fact that we did the 3 night Paris extension we wouldn't have had a chance to see Paris at all.

Paris to Normandy by bernietip

We paid for a cruise that docked in Paris.  At the last minute they changed the location to a small town outside Paris.  Not what we paid for! They did provide a bus to Paris, but it took 1.5 hours and we could not return to the boat for food or to rest.

Decide to have a great time. The crew is hard-working and attentive. The food is great and extensive.

Ship is fine but quite modest. Staff works hard and tour director was very good. Cabins are quite cramped but this might be normal for river cruises. No on deck activities scheduled just coach tours. Everything seemed to be extra and wine/ beer provided with meals was of low quality.

Consider skipping the Rinda lunch to have lunch in Paris and avoid the bus trip back and forth to Le Pecq. If possible, book your trip on a different boat..
