Great Paris to Normandy Cruise!

Viking Rinda Cruise Review by SafetyMan1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2016
  • Destination: Europe River

We were especially interested in the combination of Paris and the Normandy Beaches aspects. The ship, staff, food, shore excursions, and all travel logistics were excellent! Not as many castles as some other cruises, but very much enjoyed the Seine River views of French villages and countryside. Had time to explore Paris, both on our own and with guided tours, both before departure and last day before leaving for home. The Normandy Beaches full-day excursion was very educational, emotional, and moving. For us personally it was the best part of the cruise. So much to see, had to pick and choose what we most wanted to see. The tours of The Louvre, Versailles, and Monet's gardens and home were great, both visually and educationally. The tour guides were excellent. This was our first river cruise and it was wonderful. The combination of excellent food and wine, service, and accommodations made the Viking cruise a great experience. Will definitely do it again with Viking!

Cabin Review

Cabin Lower Level 106

Cabin was excellent. We were on lower level with a "water-line port hole" view, but we were not in the room very much so this was not an issue for us. "Cozy" but well laid out. Bed very spacious and comfortable . Cabin was warm the first night. Staff and maintenance responded immediately with service to cooling unit and was great after that.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

The Louvre

Was VERY crowded! Hardly room to move and was difficult to hear guide as we went around. Understand time was limited, but could have easily spent a whole day just touring The Louvre.

Toured the city with guide and was very educational.
