On whole, the trip met our expectations and we will most likely take a future river cruise with Viking, but there were some quirks that folks should understand if they are not familiar with Bordeaux or if they are new to river cruises (or ... Read more

We came for the wine region and were blown away by the food on-board the ship. It was unexpectedly terrific. The wine list wines were inexpensive if you want to upgrade for a special bottle, particularly if you need to spend on-board ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and based upon Vikings advertising. We have been on about a dozen river boat and this was the most disappointing. First, while the were breakfasts were well done, both lunch and dinners ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was going to Bordeaux, where we wanted to go, in Sept., when we wanted to go, and a large suite was available. This was our second and last cruise with Viking. Viking considers itself Deluxe. At best, ... Read more

We wanted to have a vacation of our own and having read an article in our local paper about river cruises, we thought it would be the perfect experience for us. We love wine, not as experts, so we felt Bordeaux would be the perfect ... Read more

I went on this cruise to help celebrate my brother and sister-in-law's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a delightful time with many family memories being remembered and made. The food on the ship was fantastic. Because of the nature of ... Read more

Great time. Ship and Staff was first class. Lorin, the Program Director does a great job. All of the excursions were very well done. All of our tour guides were excellent and spoke very good English. Getting on and off the ship was a ... Read more

We had taken a VRC before and were impressed with the organization. From the booking process to being dropped off at the airport at the end of the cruise there was nothing that wasn't done in an exemplary manner. I am sure someone, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because friends had given VRC great reviews. We were not disappointed! The meals were delicious, the "house wines" poured at lunch and dinner were from the regions we were in. We met many wonderful people ... Read more

Great ship, Viking and their crew took care of all of our needs. Small amount of people, intimate travel experience, got to know the entire crew personally. Excursions were well planned and very well led by expert guides. I found them to ... Read more

We had never been on any type of cruise, river or ocean. We had been talking about doing a river cruise through wine country with some friends so when we saw Viking offered this opportunity, we decided to try it out. Overall we loved ... Read more

Thought this would be good for our first Viking cruise. We wanted a more laid back experience and smaller boat. We had a great time, and can't wait to go on another Viking River Cruise. The crew was great, always very helpful and smiling. ... Read more

The staff was the greatest. They would answer any request with 'of course'. Whatever you wanted was delivered. Every effort was made to guarantee your trip was perfect. The food was unique to the region but you could order other items ... Read more

Like many, my wife and I became charmed with the notion of a European river cruise thanks to Viking's exceptional marketing and tie into the Downtown Abbey series. Having been in big port cities and towns and seen large cruise vessels roll ... Read more

We are avid wine enthusiasts and collectors and Bordeaux wine is our favorite. So we were very excited to be able to taste wine right in Bordeaux. I will never drink a Saint Emillion again without thinking about it's beautiful city. ... Read more

This was my first river cruise, I am hooked! All I need is more money to travel. This cruise line will be my first choice. I have taken three ocean cruises, however, this was the best of all of them. I loved the smaller ship, the ... Read more

Bordeaux is a beautiful city;we had been there before but enjoyed exploring more of it. It has the elegance of Paris without the traffic. Viking Forseti is a very comfortable boat with first class service. Everyone of the staff was ... Read more

I was interested in a holiday markets cruise, and as I booked a little later in the year, this was one of the options still available. I definitely didn't feel like I had settled though as the cruise was amazing! The experience on board ... Read more

This Chateaux and Wine Country cruise on the Viking Forseti during the week of Christmas was one of the best gifts we've ever received. We traveled with our family group of 8. A "Viking" met us at the Bordeaux airport, helped ... Read more

Everything on the cruise was higher than what was expected. All the wines served were well above average. The only negative comment I have to say is I tried to contact Viking to find out if they could help me acquire some of the wines in ... Read more

From start to finish our cruise was outstanding! The ship was clean, beautifully furnished and, as is always true on river cruises, able to dock near the center of town, so that we could disembark and walk around. We had a very nice ... Read more

This was a wonderful late fall cruise; weather still very lovely. While the Bordeaux rivers and estuary are not quite as scenic as the Danube or some others - no castles looming in the distance- the itinerary combined many wonderful ... Read more
