I've wanted to visit St. Petersburg since having guests from there in 2000. We were never very interested in Ocean Crusing, but the idea of river cruising and traveling to many places without having pack and unpack and schlepp luggase was very attractive.
We were busy every day with shore tours, language, history and cultural classes and we loved meeting and dining with new friends, the excellent, friendly staff and the wonderful tour guides.
Visiting Russia this way was truely an unforgetable experience and Viking made it easy from beginning to end.
We did this cruise in celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary. As we both still work, it was wonderful to spend so much time together in such a relaxing environment. We will always recommend river cruising to our family and friends and that's probably the only way we will cruise in the future/
Many thanks to all the folks at Viking. Booking, activities, crew, service staff and guides...you did a great job of making our trip enjoyable and unforgetable.
The cabin was perfect for our needs and was meticulously serviced twice a day. We did not need anything very spacious or fancy because we did not spend much time there. All the services were explained and executed on time and according to the explanation.
