Ship Facts: Viking Truvor Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Waterways of the Czars
My husband and I are usually solo travelers, with a full agenda of art, antiquities and scenic wonders to see, and food to sample, taking photographs as opportunities present. Some places are not so easy for the solo traveler. For two of those, Russia and China (so far), we've had outstanding experiences on Viking. Our Waterways of the Czars cruise on the Viking Kirov (now renamed Truvor) was exceptional. The Kirov was very comfortable: not too big, recently updated, good wi-fi reception throughout, and ample seating inside and out; the food was very good with lots of choices; and service throughout was attentive. Ours was the last cruise of the season (October 9 to 22), which gave us stunning foliage, many glorious cool days interspersed with some rain and even some snow, which we could enjoy without the crush of other tourists.

There are many treasures to see and much history and culture to absorb in Moscow and St. Petersburg, and at ports in between. Viking seems to attract informed and curious travelers, and it makes every effort to ensure that everyone can do and see as much and as thoroughly as they wish. The guides (there were 6 who accompanied the trip from beginning to end, each responsible for approximately 26 passengers), were well educated and informed, and were refreshingly candid in discussing Russia's recent past and present. The tour director and her staff were very helpful (and quite entertaining). It was a great trip! We look forward to seeing more of Russia on Viking.
