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 ...

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 ...

We throughly enjoyed the cruise. It really showed us Russia. The excursions presented by Viking gave us a true feeling of the culture and people. It provided us with a new appreciation of Russia, her people and history. The food was excellent. There was a great variety and the Russian cusine was very good. The soup with each dinner was the best. The ship and common areas were nicely ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted to see Moscow and other cities in Russia that were visited on this cruise. I had already been to St. Petersburg but I new that it, too, must be different than when I visited in 2004. I didn't know what to expect. I never expected some of the things I saw. Red Square at night was like a light show. The building were outlined with white lights, St. Basil's ...

Love river cruises. This was our 6th criuise and Russia was one of the top cruises we did. The visa application was a pain to apply for and get, but well worth the agrivation. The tours were great, the food, the staff, the room, the entire boat. The entrainment on the boat was very poor. We were not into playing quizzes and the panic player and singer were so, so. We love the shore excursions ...

We loved both Moscow and St. Petersburg and all the little stops along the cruise. Food was very good. We enjoyed the regional choices available. Waitstaff was top notch. Tour director did a great job. We enjoyed the Russian language lessons and the games. We liked the history lectures. We enjoyed all of the tours. But it is tough when you have to choose between 2 at the same time. ...

We have travelled to 40 countries on our own - walking, renting vehicles, taking trains, using local airlines - visiting the major sites as well as exploring places tourists normally choose not to see. But, felt a river cruise from Moscow to Saint Petersburg best met our needs at this time. Partly because of the language barrier, partly because of the current world tensions, and partly because ...

We joined two other couples on this cruise. I was not in our plans, but we decided to join them, and we're glad we did. This was our 2nd Viking cruise, and we high expectations, based on our previous Viking cruise "The Grand European Tour" The staff and service were excellent. The dining was outstanding. Chef and his crew served wonderful food with great presentations. A diet post cruise ...
