We wanted to visit Russia and Scandanavia and we had heard wonderful things about Viking cruises. The ship was awesome, the crew were very good at their jobs and took very good care of us. Loved that there were no children on board. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly. Shore excursions were well organized and we received great instructions on how to meet up for our excursions. We had some excellent local tour guides, especially in St. Petersburg where we needed to be on a tour to leave the port as we hadn't obtained a visa. The food was plentiful and we enjoyed a wide variety of excellent food. We were able to make sandwiches at breakfast to take off the ship when we had longer shore excursions. There was just enough entertainment on the ship. If you're expecting Broadway show type extravaganzas, you don't get that here. Entertainment is good but more low key. Four main singers put on a show almost every night and they were very entertaining. We also enjoyed the classical guitarist, violin and cello players and the pianist . We enjoyed all the port information and historical information sessions although we usually didn't attend the live sessions. They recorded all of them and we could watch them on demand in our room. Movie choices were good and Wi-Fi was free. The spa and fitness center was amazing and the pool areas were relaxing.

Cabin Review

Cabin 4041
The cabins were great, I've been in smaller hotel rooms. We had a sitting area and private balcony and a good size bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised at how much room we had. Very comfortable!
