We had been looking forward to seeing St. Petersburg but understood why that stop had to be changed, of course, as well as Finland and Estonia. However the replacement stops were mostly unremarkable.

We still enjoyed the trip due to the excellent staff who were always kind and friendly making each day a joy. The entertainment was awesome! And the food was fantastic. We also very much appreciated the safety measures in place to keep us safe from COVID.

It was very confusing to learn that payment made before boarding the ship could not be reimbursed on the ship. They are two different accounts. Therefore we had to contact the land based Viking to get any reimbursement.

Cabin Review

Our steward, Tedy was exceptional! He insured our well-being and kept our room in tip top shape. He greeted us each day with a smile and friendly word providing us with whatever we needed.
