We decided to take a Viking River Cruise just because it looked like a good thing to try for our first trip abroad. And we were not disappointed!
Starting with our flight. We chose the round trip air option from Viking on Air France, great airline.
We were met on our arrival in Paris by Viking representatives and taken by motor coach to our ship The Viking Rinda, the ship was just beautiful.
We were greeted graciously and checked in, then explored the ship a little and by the time we got to our very nicely appointed Veranda (B) cabin on the main deck our luggage was already there.
Dining aboard the ship was an delightful experience. We looked forward to every meal on board ship.
The entertainment and activities provided on board made us feel included with all that was going on.
Our ports were very convenient and shore excursions were both beautiful and educational.
Now about the crew... From the Captain to the deck hands, What a ride, smooth and comfortable. From The Head Chef to the waiters, food and drink we could not have enjoyed more. From the Program Director to the tour guides, knowledgeable and well coordinated. And from the Hotel Manager to the cabin attendants, very accommodating and attentive.
We would like to say that the entire crew were courteous, hard working and eager to meet all our needs. None of our request went unanswered or unfulfilled.
Would we go again? Absolutely, We are already looking for our next destination!
Very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Our cabin attendant could not have been better.
Our only concern about our entire ship board experience, the toilet was difficult to flush.
