Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Moscow

We had never been on Viking River Cruise previously, but the line was highly recommended by our travel agent as well as a friend who has been on a Viking river cruise previously. We cannot fault the line, staff or the tour guides. It was an amazing trip and very enjoyable and enlightening. The Rurik has been updated apparently, and the only challenge are the steep stairs. There is a lift (elevator) but only one at the back of the boat.

We had a fantastic trip and the staff were excellent. The local tour guides were very helpful and went out of their way to ensure that questions, comments and information were addressed. The only challenge we had was at Peterof, but that was our fault. We did not listen to information where the bus would be parked.

The Cruise Director, Christopher, went out of his way to help us and gave us information on St Petersburg which was invaluable.

We are looking at other Viking Cruises for future trips. Hope they pick up Amazon More cruises on their list. Less

Cabin review: Veranda

Great room, but the shower curtain was a challenge
