Viking Forseti Cruise Review by trainerjg

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom

Viking staff made this Chateaux, Rivers & Wine Cruise the trip of a lifetime! My husband and I decided that, rather than wait for "someday," we would take time away together to enjoy wine, water and relax. I left home with high hopes and expectations and came back refreshed, inspired, impressed and booked on another Viking Cruise!

The Viking Forsetti was lovely with several spaces to enjoy food, new friends and sights. Our stateroom was comfortable and I loved having the balcony, "Viking Daily" and timely housekeeping.

The Viking staff accomplished a rare combination of being attentive, attuned to our specific likes and needs, passionate and doing it all without being obtrusive. We felt truly pampered and enjoyed getting to know crew members. .What a great team of professionals!

The excursions were well run; tour guides were informative and we still had time to "do our own thing" in each port. Bordeaux surprised us; it was far more than just a place from which to embark!

We also enjoyed the Paris extension and true to form, Viking had everything well organized so we never had to worry how we would navigate travel, luggage, hotels, or entertainment!

The twinkling Eiffel Tower was a great metaphor for how I felt this whole trip- wonderstruck.

We already booked our next trip!!! See you soon!

Enough space for luggage, computer...enjoyed having reading lights, easy close doors (so no slamming/noise) quiet, loved the veranda, appreciated the quality of shampoo-conditioner-lotion, my husband is a big guy so shower was a bit tight for him but ok , housekeeping was timely,
