Everything was excellent ,far above our expectations. Viking did its best to make sure we had a great vacation from meeting us at the airport ,to wining and dining us every day.The staff was always available to help us with tours ,questions on the local cities we visited. We felt very comfortable and safe on the ship.Our rooms were adequate and cleaned daily.The ship Was wonderful with plenty ...

This being my first river cruise, I was unsure of what to expect. After viewing many videos and researching Viking, I placed them on a high pedestal. I must say everything exceeded my expectations in every way. The ship, excursions staff, crew, cuisine were superb. The cultural, educational and historical aspects of the excursions were truly enlightening. I gleaned lots of information as it ...

Not a typical river cruise

Partially due to inclined weather conditions, the cruising part of this trip has been dramatically reduced. Majority of the excursions fall under the side of 'a bit boring' category. Fortunately, we booked the pre-cruise excursion that highlighted the whole experience, otherwise, the river cruise part alone would not earn my praise at all. While the executive chef made the daily dinner ...

We recently completed the Bordeaux river cruise with Viking. The overall experience was good, but a couple aspects of the cruise were disappointing. Firstly, the staff were generally very courteous, professional and well trained. A couple exceptions, but overall excellent service. The Forseti is a beautiful boat, but the ship was missing a gym, hot tub and bikes. I noticed the Uniworld ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were looking for a wine cruise and this one fit the bill. The staff on board went out of their way to make sure we were having a wonderful time. Our luggage was lost for 13 days and the people at the front desk were on the phone daily trying to track it down. We loved our little cabin and Adrian who kept it impeccable. The chef was a hoot but even more importantly, the food was beyond ...

I just got back from the Viking Forseti river ship in Bordeaux. I have been on 5 Viking trips, so far, and have a 6th booked in April. Bordeaux was wonderful in many aspects. Viking staff was great; the chef was marvelous, I feel the best food I have had on Viking so far. Viking staff went over & above in taking staff & Food to Chateau Kirwan and they put on a full banquet in our honor. The ...

The Paris and Loire extension was excellent, well timed, with comfortable and good hotels. Surprisingly, enough time to do a mini city tour of Paris by taxi (no traffic, Parisians are on vacation in August) and easy restaurant reservations. Busy at the Chateaus we visited, but our guides whisked us right by them. Traffic much less than expected, only near Bordeaux somewhat ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We had a great time visiting the Bordeaux Region of France in the comfort of the well equipped Viking Forseti ship. The ship's crew was welcoming and a joy to be with on our journey with them. On board food and beverage was excellent with a wide choice of options. Housekeeping staff was meticulous in keeping our Stateroom fresh twice a day. On shore excursions were available every full day ...

This was our second Viking river cruise. First was the Rhine in 2019 and now this Bordeaux Wine Cruise. Both cruises were great. The countries were beautiful and the Viking experience is second-to-none. Great excursions, fantastic tour guides and highly skilled bus drivers. The food was good, sometimes exceptional. The entire Viking staff is always excellent. We paid extra for the Silver Spirt ...
