  1. This is interesting. We're sailing in late May, from Lyon to Avignon, and we all just received an email saying our "ship's docking location in Arles on Day 6 has changed." "Instead of docking in Arles the full day as originally planned, Viking Delling will now depart Arles at 12 PM and dock in Avignon, approximately 24 miles north of Arles, for the remainder of the day. As a result, all guests participating in Arles shore excursions will return to the ship in Avignon after their completion. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause; however, we trust you will enjoy your time in Arles as planned. Please note, should you have free time following the included Arles Walking Tour and wish to remain in Arles rather than return to the ship for lunch, a €20 per person Shipboard Credit will be added to your onboard account as reimbursement for lunch on your own. In addition, a complimentary shuttle will depart from Arles at 4:45 PM to transfer you back to the ship in Avignon." I'm not complaining. Just thought it was worth sharing.
  2. We’re doing the morning trip, so they will pick us up at our hotel at 7:30.
  3. We have made reservations for a "small group" tour to Giverny with Pair Webservices (recommended in Rick Steves's book, France 2019). I'll report back on how it was in less than 6 weeks.
  4. We're about 7 weeks behind you. Looking forward to hearing about your trip. If you have time and inclination, would love to see photos of your Viking Dailies. And yes, I've seen the Dailies others have posted; just hoping to see what this year's looks like. πŸ™‚
  5. What time is your flight, if you don't mind me asking. Our flights out are at 10:30; I'm just trying to get an idea of how early we might leave the ship.
  6. I agree completely! We're only a few weeks behind you (5/21).
  7. We've booked the optional Chateauneuf-Du-Pape tour, as well. Very glad to hear that you enjoyed it. Also, we're skipping the train in Tournon and doing the optional Rhone Valley Vineyard Hike instead. I simply could not be across the river from Hermitage and not do something there.
  8. This is great info, thanks! Any chance you plan to post the Viking Dailies from this cruise? (Please?) πŸ™‚
  9. That's good info, thanks! What time did you leave Lyon yesterday?
  10. Is this the included Beaujolais Wine Country (Day 3)?
  11. We're in Paris (on our own) for a few days in mid-May before we head to Lyon (by way of Dijon) for our cruise. We have already booked our morning trip to Giverny. πŸ™‚
  12. Enjoyed Peregrina651's posts about the Delling, and I'm looking forward to yours, too, Carin Mom, since we'll going the same direction on the Delling in 7 weeks.
