My wife and I cruised on the second to last sailing of the season for the Viking Forseti. It was our first Viking river cruise(Uniworld previously) and was a pleasant experience, especially since the weather couldn't have been better: ... Read more

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 decided to go on a Viking River cruise because my parents raved about it after going on one a few years earlier. They were right! The cruise was amazing. From the moment we were met at the airport until we were taken back to the airport ... 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 had an excellent experience on the Wine Region River Cruise. We embarked on our river journey on time but had a few delays due to water level being a problem in order to get through some bridges. The ship was in perfect shape and ... 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 the cruise as we wanted to learn more about the wines from Bordeaux. We had also seen advertisements for Viking River Cruises and heard positive things about them. We liked the tours offered and the opportunities to learn about ... 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

My wife and I really enjoyed our trip; in fact we have just signed up for our second Viking cruise, this time a 8-day cruise down the Rhine with a 2-day pre-extension in Amsterdam. Everything was near perfect even though our first river ... Read more

We heard about Viking through some friends and when the Bordeaux Wine River cruise became available we jumped on the chance. Everything about this cruise was top shelf. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The ship's staff were all ... Read more

This cruise was our first and it met every expectation. The room was well designed to maximize the available space, and the heated mirror in the bath is just an example of the thought that went into designing the room. The staff was ... Read more

The crew were amazing. They looked after everything you needed and went well beyond what was expected. The wines served at dinner were very good and they were not cheap with the pours which ran well after dinner was finished. The food was ... 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

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

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
