We booked this cruise because of ratings. We did fibd out the ratings are only taken from Con de Naste magazine or whatever. The excursions were too short and a debacle. This ship had 0 and I mean 0 entertainment. I am 66 and was youngest passenger! The wine ans spirit package was a disaster! Wines NO ONE EVER HEARD OF , and were vintages no one WANTED! I love a great wine list and this ...

Retiring the Neptune just in time

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip along the Seine up to Normandy--at least until the Norovirus started hitting the passengers. I estimate that 10-25% of the passengers got sick at some point and their was NOTHING on board to alleviate any symptoms. It was like we're all on our own. Infection rate could have been higher or lower because virtually nothing was said by the staff publicly and I ...

Enjoyable Cruise on the Seine

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on the Seine. Although the Neptune is an older ship which has to show its age and without the "flash" of newer vessels -- we had traveled on a sister ship four years ago so we new what to expect. However, in some ways, I liked the smaller size of the Neptune. The public areas easily accommodated the passengers without crowding. There were more smaller, round ...

We had an amazing staff on the Neptune. They made our trip exceptional. We enjoyed all of the stops along the Seine - the Monet Gardens were in 'spring bloom'; saw the Bayeux tapestry and the Pegasus bridge on our trip to the Normandy beaches. Les Andelys was a delightful town - including the walk uphill to the castle. Our program director, Nico Favoreel, did a wonderful job of taking ...

This trip was for me a check on a long held item on my bucket list. I have been to France, Paris and the area just north of the Pirineos, before. But, as a former history teacher, there was a great desire to sail north on the Seine and visit Normandy and especially the area of the D Day invasion. From the first minute at Charles De Gaulle, the Viking staff was wonderful in gathering us as a ...

Viking Has It Down

First Time Cruiser • Age 90s

Viking Has It Down to a science. Having never traveled with them before,I had no expectations one way or the other. I just wanted to see some of France without having to move hotels,etc. The Paris/Heart of Normandy cruise was perfect for that. Viking representatives met us at the airport and behaved as if they had just been *hoping* for the opportunity to know us. In fact,that is a constant theme ...

My friend and I took the Paris & Heart of Normandy Tour departing July 4. I was disappointed with this tour and have already advised at least three people who were considering Viking to go with a different cruise line. First, my friend and I had a problem getting updates and documentation. One of us lives in NYC and the other in Houston. First, all emails were sent to Texas, even though several ...

My wife and I have been on cruises before. This was head and shoulders superior to our prior experiences. We choose cruises by the cruise line and the places where the cruise is going. We want to go places of interest and not merely be in warm waters in the Caribbean. This cruise went to places of great interest starting with Paris, Monet's gardens, Normandy and many intermediate stops of great ...

This was our third Viking river cruise and they just keep getting better and better. Pick up at airport was flawless and when we arrived on board our cabin was ready and waiting. Cabin was roomy, clean as a whistle and comfortable. Throughout the cruise, the housekeeping service was excellent. Meals were well prepared, a variety of dishes was served and the desserts were fabulous! No complaints ...

This was our fourth cruise on Viking having previously cruised in Russia, on the Danube and on the Rhine. This time we persuaded five friends to join us. There are sometimes complaints about the flights (and flight times) selected by Viking. My advice woiuld be to research which flights are available then pay the small amount extra and ask Viking flights if they can get the flights and seats you ...
