Active immersive cruise that hits the right spots and tours of Paris and the countryside up to Normandy.. by Texastwosome

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Viking has an extra measure of success with their proven customer service, staffing and expertise on how to do Europe for active adults. The tours are led by residents who speak excellent English and know the history and highlights of each port. Be prepared to walk and see as much as you want, but be sure and take time to enjoy the ship and crew as they pamper you. The Rinda was an exceptional ship but we didn't get to cruise much during the day, since each day was filled with excursions and activites. Their ratings of the activity levels demanded were spot on, but there is an ability to modify your trip if you have problems with mobility. Note that many ports had the ship moored next to another ship, so window views would not be the greatest for all days, but usually they were an treat for us. Do spend the extra to have a french balcony, the windows on the lower levels didn't offer much lighting. We paln on doing another cruise soon, but will skip the high tourist season in mid summer because of the heat, crowds and general rushed feeling for many of the attractions. If you do a pre-cruise extension, plan on getting online tickets for popular spots, that fact saved us much headaches in the lines for the Saint Chapelle, Louvre, and dining. Many couples do the 2 weeks cruises, where they go to another part of France, and if you have time, it seems like a good idea.

7 Viking Rinda Tips

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..

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.

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