Changing our perceptions of Russia

Review for a Russia River Cruise on Scenic Tsar

Bri n Dot
6-10 Cruises • Age 80s

We chose this cruise as it was something outside of "tourists everywhere" which seems to be the case with most popular cruises. We also prefer the intimacy of River Cruising ships with their small number of passengers. WE also much prefer cruising where ALL excursions, gratuities etc are included in the overall price. We had traveled with Scenic once before and knew they were a high class ...

Trip of a Lifetime

Review for a Russia River Cruise on Scenic Tsar

Susie99
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise as we really wanted to visit Russia and this seemed the perfect way to do it. It was our first experience with Scenic. We went in October for the last cruise of the year from Volvograd to Moscow. We knew the weather would be colder but with the right clothing it was never a problem and we certainly appreciated the ease of our excursions with the reduced number of tourists. ...

It’s the first time I cruise with Viking. I’m very impressed with how thorough and smooth the trip was. The staffs were helpful at all times and very organized. I like the fact that I have time to relaxed and not being rushed to do everything. I also like the lectures on Russia history. The lecturer were all so knowledgeable, The sessions were very informative and interesting. The food was ...

The way Viking does everything well. It does Russia GREAT! We celebrated my birthday there with travel complains we met 10 years ago on a Viking cruise. The things we saw there were amazing. We felt very very safe and well protected. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Cairo a few nights and had an amazing room overlooking the Nile River, We saw and did more things than I would ever do in my ...

Fantastic Russia

Absolutely everything about this cruise, the personnel, the food, the accommodations, the excursions, embarkation and disembarkation were spectacular. We chose to go to Russia because having been to Eastern Europe we were very interested in seeing this country. The stops along the way were so different and incredible to experience. The people could not have been nicer. We had fabulous guides ...

It was the best experience I’ve ever had. The staff was so wonderful and I loved our enrichment classes. Sasha and Alexie gave us incredible history lessons. I loved Russia, I think about my trip and Russia daily. I dream of returning to this beautiful country and hope I get to meet up again with the people I met through Viking. This was my first Viking cruise but won’t be my last Our ...

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on Viking Ingvar

lanebailey51
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were offered a very good deal by Viking. We assumed the deal was special because ours was the next to last cruise of the season and they wanted to ensure a full ship.Several years ago we were scheduled for another cruise with Viking which was cancelled due to a flood in Europe. Our expectations were high based on testimonies from people we know who have taken Viking cruises. Our ...

Great Cruise, but be careful on excursions

Review for a Russia River Cruise on Viking Ingvar

Greater Erie
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We got a great deal to go on the last cruise of the season. Free airfare and a reduced price. The weather was not good, it rained or was cloudy nearly every day which was not the fault of Viking. The food was excellent and the waitstaff could not be more friendly and accommodating. they had things to do while sailing such as lessons in basic Russian and Russian history which helped when ...

Not our Best Viking Experience

Review for a Russia River Cruise on Viking Ingvar

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Our ship was berthed in Moscow for 3 nights the last cruise of this season. We had a portside cabin. We were in front of the main terminal building which was in process of being refurbished. Next year it will be beautiful, unfortunately for us we were looking at an ugly construction site with piles of trash & garbage. If we where one berth over on either side we could have been looking at green ...

A very interesting and information insight to the life of Russia and its people.

Review for a Russia River Cruise on Viking Helgi

Often Travelling
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...
