advice on best company for Bordeaux river cruise

My wife and I, who have always planned our own self-drive trips to Europe, are now thinking of a river cruise in the Bordeaux area to celebrate a special anniversary. We've always consulted these forums when planning our European trips. We've never been to this area of France, and will want to have a pre and/or post cruise side trip(s). Suggestions on tour operators, ships, etc. will be greatly appreciated.

I think both AMA and Viking operate cruises in this area. Either are very good, but I might have a slight preference for Viking having done one cruise with each company (on different rivers).

There are also a number of barge cruises, but it has been too long since we have done one to be able to recommend a specific company.

You can also do self-drive canal trips:

We have gone on several river boat cruises with Viking and AMAWaterways and found AMA superior in every way.
