Viking Helgi Cruise Review by Jdblevins: River of the Czars.
Overall Member Rating
River of the Czars.
An incredible journey along the inland waterway from St Petersburg to Moscow in the lap of luxury. The ship was well appointed and the crew made us feel at home. The entire experience was beyond our expectations. Our cabin (311) had an obstructing column and we were offered a complimentary upgrade. Full marks for the meals, very tasty, exceptional presentation and service. Quite an adjustment on returning home to do-it-yourself meals.
The tour guides had a very good command of english, were personable and knowledgable. The on-board lectures on history, economics and politics were quite informative and well done. The daily activity sheets kept us well informed and where helpful in preparing trip journals and organizing our trip photos.
We have already recommended Viking River Crusies to many of our friends and will continue to do so.
Thank you Viking for a most memorable trip and 45th wedding anniversary. Less

The cabin was well appointed and comfortable, the beds were first rate. We had a balcony but it was a little chilly to use it ( besides we were too busy to make much use of it). The maid service was very good and accommodating.
