Intrigue and fascinate about the country of Russia. The country is beautiful and magnificent. The people are very serious but loveable and funny. The scenery is wonderful. About the ship, the cabin where we staying clean and spacious. The crews are helpful and courteous. The food is ok but not wonderful. We had a goodtime with the entertainment on the ship. The excursions are relaxing, awesome ...

This is not a first cruise for anyone. It's a cruise for people who've seen a lot, and want more. The "river" between St. Petersburg and Moscow is a combination of lakes, rivers, and canals. Near St. P, it's mostly uninhabited area. Near Moscow, it's more inhabited. Of the 5 stops on the "river," only two (Yaroslavl and Uglich) are real towns. Kizhi is fabulous, as a recreated ancient ...

Cabin was fine, the same size as other cabins but this ship is not a spaceship and has been renovated and converted so the cabin is nowhere near as good as the other scenic ships. The staff on board are great, very helpful and accommodating the best staff we have ever had on a cruise, they were wonderful. The food was fair only, drinks were only offered free with meals and often hard to ...

My husband has been wanting to see Russia for years....I always hedged......but finally agreed to go this summer. Wow! What an eye opener. What was I thinking? Russia is just beautiful!

I chose thiis cruise because I have always wanted to see St. Petersburg because of the history of the Romanov dynasty. I was not disappointed. Embarking and disembarking was smooth and efficiently handled. We were greeted promptly at the airport and traveled by bus to the ship where we were greeted with a typical Russian beverage and shown promptly to our cabin, The Helgi,a large but homey ...

We sailed on the Viking Ingvar from June 24 to July 6, 2017 from St. Petersburg to Moscow and really enjoyed the trip. Cabin We had a balcony cabin on the 3rd floor, which was fine. While the cabin was under the Panorama Bar, the location did not bother us, as that bar closed by 7:00P. We could occasionally hear some noise, but never enough to be bothersome. However, we heard from people ...

We took the optional Helsinki stays and enjoyed our exploration of the city and its sights. I especially wanted to do this add on, as we then traveled by train from Helsinki to St. Petersburg. Enjoyed seeing the countryside of Finland and our crossover into Russia. We had no Viking Rep with us on the train, but we told what to expect and our border crossing went smoothly. No problem with ...

After watching the Viking Waterways of the Tsars video, I saw how beautiful Russia was & we decided that trip would have to be our second Viking River Cruise. We were not disappointed. Russia is as beautiful & friendly as Viking makes it look. We booked our flights through Viking & they were acceptable. Learning from our first cruise, we opted to pay extra to change our return flights so ...

I've always wanted to go to St. Petersburg. The rest of the itinerary just made the whole experience better. The ports of call were all interesting and fascinating. The staff and service were all just excellent as was our stateroom and the meals on board. A very important aspect of this trip, is that my husband and I are gay. I approached the trip with a little apprehension. Small boat, we ...

This cruise provided an excellent opportunity to see and experience new and different places from our previous adventures and being our 7th Viking cruise (river and ocean combined), we were confident that it would be done well. Our expectations were met and exceeded in many ways. We have cruised with others on the oceans and Viking continues to provide an outstanding experience. This is not to ...
