Having resisted river cruising for many years, we finally capitulated (ran out of excuses for not taking one) and booked a Provence cruise on the Viking Delling. The booking and upfront experience was good. The ...

Lyon and Provence make for a wonderful wine and dine cruise!

We chose Lyon and Provence for food and wine experiences and were not disappointed. The food and wine on the Delling were both quite nice, and we dined at a brasserie in Lyon run by Paul Bocuse, a three-star ...

First River Cruise

I guess from all the television hype you automatically expect something out of this world. I think the cruise is very over rated. Don't misunderstand, we had a fabulous time but we were on this cruise with 8 others, ...
