The Wines of France


Wanted to explore the Bordeaux region of France. Interested in the wines and wineries there. This cruise was kind of disappointing. Not enough wine tasting for the region we were in. There wasn't a lot of ...

Viking Chateaux, Rivers, and Wine Bordeaux Cruise

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 ...

Program Director Lorin Sets a High Bar

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 ...

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 ...

Viking Forseti Chateaux, River & Wine
