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

This was our first cruise of any kind. The staff was exemplary and the service outstanding. The variety and quality of the food was truly unexpected. This was not buffet food, but fine restaurant preparations and presentations. The ... 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

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

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 was our first Viking Cruise and I can't say enough about how great it was. It was the Châteaux, Rivers & Wine of the Bordeaux region. It was fantastic. The crew was outstanding. The Cruise Director made the trip. He had ... 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

This was our first RIVER cruise and we really didn't cruise. The scenery when we did cruise was rather ugly on both banks of the river and the river was a muddy brown which is no fault of Viking but I wish I had known and chosen another ... Read more

Always good to cruise with Viking, having said that this was our ninth cruise with Viking with another two booked for 2016. This cruise was slightly interrupted because of river water levels but nothing too serious and did not cause us ... Read more

Even though water levels did not allow us to sail to a couple of the ports (some passengers called our attention to the fact of being able to see town of Bordeau with binoculars always in the distance), the captain kept the boat moving ... Read more

This is not really a cruise. The boat doesn't leave Bordeaux until Monday lunchtime and you are back by Thursday. Tours involve lengthy bus journeys. The staff aboard the Forseti are brilliant and very helpful. Unfortunately when we ... Read more

Having read some mixed reviews I was a bit concerned as this was our first river cruise but we found nothing to really moan about. Admittedly the river is mud coloured but it's tidal and that's how it is. There may not have been as much ... Read more

This cruise was about the best that can be done for a package tour for 190 people. And there you have it--why it was very good and why I'll never do anything like it again. Having visited 56 countries, some repeatedly and most ... Read more
