South of France in May! What could be more beautiful? But the Viking Buri, its staff and director made it a stunning vacation! From the excursions to the food to the fabulous directorship, this particular cruise was the best!
The wine education was extensive on the tour, and the accommodations provided for transportation were excellent. The evening tour was fun and different.
We made life-long friends even though we had no intention of much socializing...we needed a break from our crazy lives...but the folks we met were just too much fun! Since then, we have already visited some in NY!
The ship had all we needed (except for a fitness room, which would have been very welcomed). The dining staff became like family, while still keeping a very professional stance. The evening entertainment was lots of fun, and not too night-clubby as others have been.
The front desk staff assisted us in making reservations and appointments in the cities we visited, from restaurants to nail salon. They also recommended places to go, which was quite helpful.
The excursions were excellent, and we didn't even add any additional to our trip.
Tiny, but we only slept, so no big deal.
