Loved it all. Great crew, great food and great ports. Even though we had to change ships. because of a problem with a river lock, the transition was done seamlessly. Viking does a great job with the things it can control and it does an ... Read more

The top of my bucket list included Austria, and we had heard that river cruising was the way to go. We were not disappointed. From the moment we were met at the airport to the time we were picked up to leave for home, we were the most ... Read more

Great ship, crew and food. Cabin was very comfortable. It was difficult to understand some of the guides because of their heavy accents. Why doesn't Viking use native-Engish speakers? Most of the shore excursions were terrific. ... Read more

This was the absolute best way to get a taste of Russian metropolitan and village life! Viking's shore excursions were perfectly tailored to provide that broad overview of life in Russia. This was our third Viking River Cruise. We love ... Read more

We chose Viking to be sure the ship would be nice. The ship was in good condition and met and exceeded our expectations. Going to Russia can be daunting. Once we got past the hassle and expense of the Visa, everything was fine. Customs ... Read more

From the moment we were met at the St. Petersburg airport (in spite of a short hike to the bus, but that's Russia, we had a great time. The crew, food, guides, ambiance on board, port stops, were all just great. The food was also very ... Read more

From the moment we stepped aboard the Viking Ingvar we felt at home. We were made to feel a welcome friend and nothing was too much trouble for the crew at whatever level from tour director to waiting or cabin staff. The food and service ... Read more

The Viking Ingvar has simple modern design, ample public spaces, excellent food, and a caring, competent staff. Cabins were, as expected, small but very well designed and the veranda cabin is worth the added cost. The ports were all ... Read more

We'd never been on a cruise before as we like to travel independently, but were converted after this wonderful trip. The destination - Russia - is not an easy one to organise with all the visa issues but once we arrived at the airport ... Read more

This was a trip of a lifetime! All we had to do was to get ourselves to St. Petersburg. The flight there on Russian Airlines was an unexpected treat! At the airport, Viking Cruise personnel with warm greetings, took charge of our luggage ... Read more

Viking was highly recommended to us by friends who have done several Viking cruises. We did like the river cruise and will most likely do another one but on a different line as we'd like to compare Viking's offerings. The rooms were ... Read more

This cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg provided the opportunity to see urban Russia in the post-Soviet era. It also allowed a glimpse of the lives of the residents of the rural areas along the waterways. The best part was a chance to ... Read more

We took the Waterway of the Tsars cruise on the Viking Ingvar in October of 2014. We were met at the airport by Viking staff and very efficiently whisked to a bus, but then it took 3 1/2 hours in horrible Moscow traffic to go the 15 miles ... Read more
