Paris's landmarks come alive during the Christmas season as twinkling lights adorn the city's streets. Shop windows are a grand affair, depicting scenes from fairy tales, Santa Claus and his workshop, or a snowy winter wonderland. While it rarely snows in Paris, there is always the chance of a dusting, adding to the magical atmosphere. From November on, leading department stores, including Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, present their seasonal displays, often featuring clever animation; their grand openings are hotly anticipated each year.
0 DaysPort Charges: Included on all itineraires
To ensure your journey is smooth and that you are able to fully enjoy your voyage as planned, we highly recommend that all guests take a pre-departure COVID-19 test, no more than three days prior to beginning your journey.
Enjoy fresh air in your stateroom, knowing that all staterooms on Viking river ships feature independent air handling units that do not share air with other areas of the ship. Take comfort in knowing that the air in the public areas of your ship has also been purified with new short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) lights and high-density filters, which kill 99.99% of all airborne viruses and bacteria.
While every precaution can reduce the risk of illness, we are also prepared for that outcome. Each of our vessels has always had a state-of-the-art Medical Center; those facilities have now been upgraded with more specialized equipment. We have also launched a new 24/7 hotline staffed by doctors, specifically for our river cruises.
Rest assured that the surfaces on your ship will be cleaned and sanitized continuously with daily scheduled deep cleanings. You will notice more hand sanitization stations throughout your ship. And on our ocean and expedition ships, we are using new sanitization robots that utilize UV-C light to treat surfaces in guest and crew public areas—an industry first.
Dining & Entertainment
On your ship, you can expect spacious, airy public areas and abundant options for al fresco dining. Also, on our ocean voyages, as always, you can enjoy complimentary 24-hour room service. Now, more options for spaced seating in all dining venues will allow for physical distancing; there will be additional table service at all bars and lounges; and new capabilities will allow you to watch more live events and enriching content through your in-room entertainment system.
Physical Distancing & Face Masks
Public health experts agree that proper physical distancing and the use of face masks are effective in helping slow the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. Face masks are optional while moving about the ship. Please note: Viking’s Medical Team continually monitors conditions and may deem face masks to be necessary while moving about the ship, based on conditions at the time of travel. While ashore, guests will need to comply with any local guidelines for face masks and physical distancing. Face masks continue to be required for all crew.
Local Partner Training
As part of the Viking Health & Safety Program, we will regularly train every local partner, including motor coach drivers and tour guides. While ashore, Viking’s measures will meet or exceed local guidelines for social distancing and other precautions.
Viking River Cruises are first rate. The onboard staff are all friendly and professional. We haven't met one yet that we thought was anything else but that. Itineraries are very interesting and the local tour guides really enhance any trip.
Good standards made the events very special!
Excellent trip, excellent food and excellent crew. Probably the best riverboat cruise we have taken.
Somehow, the food was not as good as the previous river cruise. A little bit disappointed. Except that, overall it was good.
Viking took care of us from the time we arrived until our flight home and didnt miss a beat the entire trip. Food was excellent, service even better.
Excellent trip. The included shore excursions were sometimes a little to much walking and climbing steps, but it was still good.
The Viking Company did an excellent job organizing and executing a wonderful and informative cruise. The food was awesome, guides were informative and the crew was great.
Our room, staff, good food certainly was above average
We had a wonderful time on our Viking cruise (Zurich to Paris, August 2018). Everything was well organized, from embarkation to departure. The crew was extremely professional. The food was excellent. The ship was very clean and well maintained. The daily schedule is a nice mix of structured activities with free time. My minor complaint is that the cabins are a bit tight. Our ship avoided some of the problems that affect European river cruising during summer months when water levels are lower. The captain monitored the situation very carefully and we departed from one of our ports a few hours earlier than scheduled. This proved to be a smart decision. Our ship, Viking Modi, was one of two ships sailing on the Rhine and Moselle in late August that arrived on time.

I was not made aware of the optional tours in Paris with the exception of the Montmartre tour.
