Viking Helgi Cruise Review by bennetthardy
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Russia River
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Outside Stateroom
We loved everything about our cruise! While Viking Helgi isn’t a new ship, they did a great job making everything nice. The crew was incredibly friendly and helpful. And our cabin was always very clean and fresh. The food was also very good. I especially liked that everything was included. From the wine at dinner to the excursions.
One thing we especially liked was how being in a group we weren’t stuck in hour long lines to get entrance to our venues.
We were really treated like VIP guests. Everywhere we went, Viking had things covered. We especially loved the balet and the music show with traditional Russian instruments. One highlight in both Moscow and St Petersburg were the boat rides by night through the canals and rivers of both cities.
We would recommend the 2 day extension in St Petersburg to have time to explore and take in everything.
