Viking Helgi Overview

Like its fleetmates, Viking Ingvar and Viking Truvor, Viking Helgi offers "Waterways of the Czars" themed trips between St. Petersburg and Moscow, with calls at culture-filled villages and unique towns along the way, such as Yaroslavl, Uglich and Goritzy. There, viewing highlights include grand monuments and opulent palaces, fortified monasteries and beautiful cathedrals.

The ship features a restaurant, two bars, a library, sun deck, three promenade decks, onboard boutique, elevator, medical center, free in-cabin Internet and laundry service. All cabins offer outside views and have private bathrooms.

Editor's Note: Viking Helgi is heading into dry-dock in 2013 after which the ship will boast two suites, two junior suites, 67 veranda cabins and 31 deluxe. All upper and middle deck cabins will feature private balconies.
