First Viking Cruise

Viking Akun Cruise Review by Slittle

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2017
  • Destination: Russia River

We chose this cruise because of the price and our interest. It was our first river cruise, and I can't say enough about Viking and how we were treated! From our pick up at the airport to our return to the airport was top notch. We have mostly traveled on our own because we thought we wanted the independence. No more. We enjoyed being pampered and scheduled. My husband likened it to being at an adult summer camp!! We loved having our daily schedule delivered to our room along with the informative sessions about what we were to see the following day. We also enjoyed all the educational activities on board along with the interesting people we met-staff and other guests. My husband is a picky eater but thoroughly enjoyed the meals. On other vacations we get tired of deciding where to eat for all our meals and whether we needed reservations. It was a joy to get back to the ship after a full day of sightseeing with a little time to refresh and maybe take a quick nap before being waited on hand and foot at dinner. We are already planning our next Viking cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin Veranda 432

The cabin was small but didn't feel small. There was ample room for all our belongings and luggage. There were plenty of storage cubicles and nooks. Our room was quieter than most hotels we've ever stayed in.

Russian Ballet Show

The ballet was fabulous! I had ever seen an abbreviated version of Swan Lake before this and of course seeing it in St. Petersburg was fabulous.
