Rural look at Russian interior.
Paid for transfer package - Our flight was late so we were left our own to get to the ship from St Petersburg. We gave advance notice of the delay.
Some of the bus versus walking excursions were more walking than desired or anticipated.
Talks on board should be recorded and streamed so passengers can watch in their cabin at a better time. Sometimes there were not enough seats.
Sophia, our stewardess, was particularly good. We have traveled with Viking 5 times and she is the best so far.
The Truvor is tasteful considering its age but the public seating area is not at all cozy. All the
couch/seating areas feel like you are sitting in the hallway.
On the whole, the trip was very good and all bu one of the local guides were excellent.
