We had travelled this cruise a few years ago and wished to revisit the sights because there is so much to take in. Our friends joined us on this cruise as they had heard so much about it from us over the years that they wanted to see the sights of Russia themselves. As we have all travelled with Viking before we are familiar the standard of service, food and entertainment, hence our reason for travelling with them.
The ship although not built to the same standard as the river cruises of Europe and ocean cruises, was exceptionally well maintained and catered for all our needs. The ship being slightly smaller means that you got to know your fellow travellers quite easily together with the staff.
The cabin met all our needs and was easily accessible. Our only preference would have been to have a slightly more modern shower facilities, perhaps matching those of the other boats and ships.
A pleasant room although the shower area could be modernised to match the standard of the other boats/ships.
Excellent insight to the famous sights of Moscow.
A very detailed tour of the historic sights of St Petersburg.
