Eat your way around Bordeaux : Experience the French port city and its environs on a luxurious river cruise

Jun 09, 2019 - The Straits Times (Singapore)

Sailing down Bordeaux's Garonne river on a cruise, I feel like I am in an Agatha Christie novel.

It sounds slightly dramatic, I know. In April when I visit, the air is crisp, so there are no flies to swat, let alone any murderous undercurrents a la Death On The Nile. Deep in wine country in the south-west of France, I am far from Egypt.

I am on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Bon Voyage, which plies the rivers near the port city of Bordeaux.

This "super ship" is the latest off...
