Viking Rinda Cruise Review by petenpeg1982

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom

The Rinda trip from Paris to Normandy was spectacular. I loved the port stops in Vernon/Giverny, Rouen and Les Andelys.

The ship was gorgeous, the food was amazing and the crew were a delight. A couple of suggestions:

1. The “Silver Spirits” bar package was well worth the $300 per cabin. Not that we were barflies, but it entitles you to almost any wine off their wine list. The house wines included with lunch and dinner were fine, but they had some really great ones on the list.

2. Be aware that the ship docks in Le Pecq, a suburb, and not Paris proper. If you want to go into the city on embarkation day, you can get there for less than 5 euros on the RER train. The St Germain en Leye station on the A1 line is close and stops in the heart of the city is close but it is a steep climb

The included tour to Giverny is a bit rushed, while you have more time than you need. You might want to consider getting a cab to stay longer.

The crowd does tend to skew older, although we did have some intergenerational groups.

I am happy to answer any questions.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin F 102

The cabin was fine for our needs. You spend almost no time there. The public spaces are so pretty that I would not spend the money for a veranda or French balcony cabin.
