We liked the ports of call that we were to visit on the Paris to Normandy cruise and friends of ours told us about their great experience with Viking. So, we signed up and had a great time. We loved the food, wine, service and tours. The Vikings crew was awesome. We're going back next year on another cruise and are really looking forward to it. We loved the flexibility afforded us with each ...

The cruise itself was excellent as is the expectation for Viking. The food was superb and gourmet and the service was top notch as well....however, the ship was tired and it was obvious it was the last season before it was to be retired. A lock was not functioning so we were bussed and embarked at Vernon...none of this was Viking's fault...we assumed we would be returning to Paris the ...

Viking Cruise "France's Finest" Paris and the Heart of Normandy

For context we are a couple in our mid forties who have taken many ocean cruises. We took the "France's Finest" trip which is two 1 week itineraries combined. This is a review of Paris and the Heart of Normandy on the Viking Neptune. When we were on the ship we were mainly pleased because we had nothing to compare it to, but after our second week on the Heimdal we can see that the Neptune has ...

This was my first time to Paris and taking a River Cruise. It was fantastic! Everyone on the ship was so nice and helpful. Lionel the Program Director was so informative and helpful and he worked so hard to make the cruise a great experience. It was obvious that he loved working for the Viking Cruise and went out of his way to make the cruise enjoyable. Lionel was so knowlegable about the ...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip along the Seine up to Normandy--at least until the Norovirus started hitting the passengers. I estimate that 10-25% of the passengers got sick at some point and their was NOTHING on board to alleviate any symptoms. It was like we're all on our own. Infection rate could have been higher or lower because virtually nothing was said by the staff publicly and I ...

The trip on the Seine was wonderful. The crew was very attentive and went above and beyond the call of duty when my husband became ill. Our cabin steward was outstanding. The food service was impressive and the selection of dishes left few wanting. We enjoyed the small villages that we stopped at. I do believe that Giverny and Monet's garden was one of our favorites, although our visit to ...

My sister-in-law and I took this trip in September. Viking representative was looking for us when we arrived in Paris, and after that they took wonderful care of us. The ship does show wear but I understand it is being retired. The staff could not have been nicer. Our room was always spotless. Dinner was served at 7 but that was okay for us. I am not a wine snob but the included wine with ...

My husband and I are going on the Danube Waltz in November, the Christmas Markets! This will be our second Viking river cruise! We are in our late 40’s, and love to travel to Europe. This cruise is on one of the longships, in a veranda room...so excited about the free upgrade, thank you Viking! Our first Viking River Cruise was Paris to Normandy, on the Neptune. We loved everything about it. We ...

It was our second cruise with Viking and we decided on France's Finest. Almost everything was wonderful : the cruise director Nico was exceptional, the crew was friendly and we had top notch service, the food and dining room service were very good and the excursions were well planned. The weather could have been better and the ship was on the old side, I was disappointed with our cabin. I had ...

This trip was for me a check on a long held item on my bucket list. I have been to France, Paris and the area just north of the Pirineos, before. But, as a former history teacher, there was a great desire to sail north on the Seine and visit Normandy and especially the area of the D Day invasion. From the first minute at Charles De Gaulle, the Viking staff was wonderful in gathering us as a ...
