Viking Forseti overview

The innovative Viking Forseti is one of several new Longships by Viking River Cruises set to sail in 2012. With only 95 cabins and 190 passengers, this intimate ship offers some exciting new features for river cruise ships including the Explorer Suites - two 445 square- foot suites that feature a separate living room, bedroom and bathroom, as well as a wrap-around veranda. The Aquavit Terrace, a new lounge with retractable floor-to-ceiling windows that can be opened on nice days, offers the perfect spot to relax while enjoying a glass of wine and catching up with friends. Aboard this sleek vessel you will also find many environmentally friendly additions such as hybrid engines, solar panels, and an organic herb garden located on the sun deck. With its fine cuisine, exemplary service, and culture-rich itineraries, the Viking Forseti will continue to set the standard in this new age of river cruising.

Ship: Viking Forseti / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

Viking staff, both ship and air were professional, courteous and friendly. We received helpful assistance from the concierge and the transfer representatives at the airport for both our arrival and departure.

A Wine Lover's Paradise by ronfmoore

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Forseti / Destination: River Cruises - Europe

My favorite part of the trip was the tour, lunch and wine tasting  at Chateau Siuarac.   This trip was really all about the wine.  I would definitely recommend this cruise to my friends looking for a relaxing, safe vacation with very attentive service.  I would recommend a three day visit to the Loire Valley either before or post cruise, to see the great Chateaux of France.

9 Viking Forseti tips

Viking Forseti - only comment. Bring layers because of weather. Tours are easy. If you cannot do a regular tour, they are very accommodating.

Don't be afraid to request a different wine with your meal than what is being served. They are very accommodating.

Would not recommend THIS INTINERARY as one's first river cruise. Take care in cabin selection.
