I have cruised with Vikings before and I therefore know that their standards of food and service are excellent. This cruise lived up to my expectations - nothing is too much trouble for the crew - they want to please everybody on board. Our suite was always kept clean and tidy. The food and wine were exceptionally good. I had hoped we had picked the correct time to see the Grape Harvest - ...

We chose this cruise as we enjoy food and wine and that is what Bordeaux is all about, aside from all the beautiful scenery. As we had traveled with Viking before, we knew that we could expect the best service along with the beauty of the countryside. The Viking ships are perfect, with all the amenities that you would expect from a luxury accommodation but what really sets the cruise apart is ...

We had enjoyed France's Finest, back to back cruises on the Seine and the Rhone, from Normandy (a coach trip) to Rouen, Paris, Lyon, Arles, Avignon, finishing with an extension in Nice, all in 2015. We wanted more of France, so chose the winery tour centering in Bordeaux and visiting a number of small charming towns and villages with their central markets and vineyards - Cadillac, St.Emillion and ...

This was our second cruise with Viking, our first being a Rhine Cruise. Both experience's were very memorable. The Cruise Director on the Forseti helped to make this trip great. He was attentive and had something unique to add to each of the evenings updates. The staff was very nice , food was exceptional, and the rooms very comfortable. The level of service from the staff is exceptional. ...

Excellent cabin and top quality service and cleanliness. (Note that such river cruises do not have entertainment or fitness facilities, so the forced rating of these should be disregarded as irrelevant). The ship and staff were truly outstanding, particularly the dining room staff. Viking provides absolutely top-notch service, food, wine and overall cleanliness unmatched in the industry. The ...

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, they are "Deluxe Light." There is no WOW! factor. Maybe I'm jaded, but nothing on Viking feels special, and the on-board activities are poorly paced. Viking is ...

We had one prior Viking River cruise from Paris to Normandy and back, so when we were looking for another River cruise in France this was the perfect combination of history and culinary experience. Viking did an outstanding job and I highly recommend this itinerary on the Viking Forseti. One of the things we like best about Viking is that they are very good with providing context to the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

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 universally friendly and accommodating. The food in the dining room was consistently above average, at every meal...it took me a couple of days to realize that I ...

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 breeze. This is a cruise that is definitely wine-centric, but there were some cruisers just along for the ride. Food and beverage offerings were nice. We ...

This was a bored cruise. 7 days cruise and we was 4 days in Bordeaux. This was just hotel near to Passenger terminal. I will not suggest nobody to to book this cruise or to use Viking River Cruises as company as well . The value of money is just almost zero. The hotel crew was ok. The food provided onboard was nothing special and most of the times not tasty. The Cheff Pascal was friendly. Maybe ...
