Find a France Vacation

Spacious staterooms boast upscale finishes with a private bathroom and shower, hotel-style bed and large picture window or balcony.

At least one port a day is visited on virtually every itinerary. Viking owns docks in many of the cities it visits, and you are able to disembark in the heart of town, without waiting in lines or taking tenders to shore. English-speaking local guides lead tours ashore, though you'll also have the option of exploring cities on your own.

France river cruises are rated according to the quality of the vessel and its accommodations, the number of included amenities and activities both on and off the ship, the class of hotels used for land portions of itineraries, and the level of service delivered. Viking river cruises are categorized as deluxe on the industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe).
