Wanted to visit Kizhi church and get to know St Petersburg and Moscow better (took both pre and post extensions) Everything worked out very well! The enrichment activities were fabulous, interesting and entertaining. Loved learning some Russian. The silver drink package is a great complement, excellent wines and after dinner drinks. Loved the idea of getting to know our neighbors! The ...

Our cruise from Saint Petersburg to Moscow was an adventure only dreamt of in an earlier time. The exposure to this fascinating nation—her engaging people, her clean and civil cities, her beautiful countryside and historical sites—was an experience to treasure for a lifetime. And this was facilitated by the our crew and tour entourage who made our cruise the most wonderful time. They were ...

My wife and I visited Russia in 1998 and wanted to see the changes in the past 20 years. We were blown away! Infrastructure construction (great roads, utilities, etc.) plus the number of western (European and US) retail outlets and manufacturing plants were the most noticeable. On our last visit, skies were smoky gray most of the time so we were impressed at how clear the air was in the big ...

Viking is very well organized from beginning to end. Airport pick up went smoothly. The Akun has been refurbished beautifully and the public spaces are well appointed. All of the staff were professional and friendly, always ready to go that extra mile for guest comfort and satisfaction. Meals were superb, well plated and varied, with many choices and very fresh ingredients. Our cabin was ...

Regardless of which direction the ship was sailing, the scheduling of the ports of call was outstanding. The inclusion of the Russian history coordinated with the ports of call and the individual sites being visited added to the quality of the tours in ways that are just now becoming clear to us. It was easily imaginable to envision the sweep of history regarding each of the locales. Regarding ...

Having sailed on the Rhine and Danube with Viking and having visited St Petersburg, Murmansk and Archangel on ocean cruises, we were keen to see more of the Russian interior. The booking process with Viking was simple tho' the Russian visa process was both expensive and time consuming - but no-one other than the Russians can do much about that! Thank goodness the ocean cruise lines have a waiver ...

What a beautiful country to visit. This was our 10th Viking Cruise and as always we had a great time. The boat though ok was NOT up to Viking standards though Russia tells them what boats they can use. The ship was a 90 era boat that was updated a couple years ago. But still a 90's boat. The stairways were very steap and hard to go up and down. Only one public bathroom on the whole boat so if ...

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 ...

Heard good reviews from friends who have been on Viking cruises for years. In general, Viking knows how to run their business. The on shore excursions were good and the guides were knowledgeable. The on board educational talks were informative. I attended all of them. Food was very good but not excellent. Service in cabin and restaurants were very good. Provided manager and maitre D with a ...

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 ...
