Riverboat Life

Not a fan of the high seas? Try a riverboat (wine helps) - Lowell Sun

I've never been comfortable about being on the high seas, so when my wife suggested we take the first ship cruise of our 26-year marriage, I balked. Just think of living in a royal palace on the waterways, and that's how pleasurable I found it to be. For once in my life, I felt "entitled" to everything I could explore and enjoy on board the Viking Forseti, our cruise ship of 50. Then our friends suggested a wine riverboat cruise to Bordeaux -- an idea that seemed enticing. Of course, what pushed me across the goal line was that I love wine, and a visit to Bordeaux -- the créme de la créme of the wine world -- has always been on my Bucket List. So, in December 2016, we signed up for the eight-day Viking's Wine Riverboat Cruise to Bordeaux and added a three-day trip to Paris, also handled by the Viking Cruise Line. Source: www.lowellsun.com
