Sail Date: Jul 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Outside Stateroom

We had taken 4 Viking River cruises previously, but we had never been to Russia. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting Russia, and learning about the history of that country. We especially enjoyed the concerts and dance performances, and the on-board seminars about the history of the country and the present life in Russia.

We also enjoyed the on-board entertainment very much, especially the opera singers from the Marinsky Theater.

As always, the food selection at the buffets was very extensive, and complemented the menu listings. The food was well prepared and we were happy to see some Russian foods listed on the menu, and also available on the breakfast and lunch buffets.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Outside Stateroom

Cabin DX

The cabin was spotless at all times. We could see that the cabin cleaning staff member took pride in her work. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was always at a pleasant temperature, even if the weather was cool outside.
