London, Paris & D-Day Cruise Review

“The ship’s staff was extraordinary, especially the dining staff and bartenders. They made our trip very enjoyable. The food was exceptional, and the crew took excellent care of the passengers. This was our first Viking experience and our first river cruise. I found the size of the ship made the experience much more intimate. We had great guides on our excursions. Viking is pricier than many other lines, but they deliver on value.”
