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 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

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

The cruise lived up to the description in the literature we received. Service on board was excellent as was the food. The excursions were quite good and two of the excursions were excellent. In particular we enjoyed motoring across the ... Read more

We chose the Bordeaux cruise because most of the other European River Cruises were sold out by the time we decided to go (rather last minute, I'm afraid). We liked the idea of Bordeaux because we enjoy fine wines and we had never seen ... Read more

No need to cover much ground when sailing around the Bordeaux region offers such loveliness. The things we appreciated: the amazing organization and attention to detail. The large dinner tables, which ensured that we sat with others and ... Read more

This was our 8th Viking River Cruises river experience. If the "Chateaux, Rivers, and Wine" itinerary had been our first Viking river experience we might have come away unimpressed, disappointed, and perhaps not excited about ... Read more

This itinerary - sailing from Bordeaux to Bordeaux - isn't much of a cruise. BUT, it's a lot of fun and very informative. Definitely focused on wine - which is what we wanted. The smaller towns we visited were very worthwhile (St. Emilion, ... Read more

Previously, we cruised with Viking three times. Each time we enjoyed every facet of the cruise immensely. The Forseti was just what we anticipated it would be: clean, with an excellent staff; very comfortable and beautiful. Because we ... Read more
