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 ...

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! We started our cruise in St. Petersburg where we visited the famous Hermitage, Catherine's Palace, the Marlinsky Ballet (stunning performance of Swan Lake) etc., and made our way to Moscow visiting quaint ...

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 ...

My review tends to compare this trip with our previous Viking cruise on the Danube from Budapest to in November 2013. The high point of both was the Hotel Manager, Rebekka, who had the same role on both. Her brightness and that of her three escorts, Tatana, Polina and Julia, overcame the dullness of the Russian captain and his people and made every day special, even in the rain. I sensed ...

This was a trip of a lifetime! All we had to do was to get ourselves to St. Petersburg. The flight there on Russian Airlines was an unexpected treat! At the airport, Viking Cruise personnel with warm greetings, took charge of our luggage and travel-tired bodies. Goodbye travel anxiety! We were shuttled to our ship and graciously ushered to our lovely, comfortable cabin. The cruise had begun! ...

We spent twelve days & nights crusing the Russina waterway from St. Petersburg to Moscow. I enjoyed each of the guided tours from The Hermitage , the Peterhof, the summer Palace to the Kremlin and St Basil's church. Viking managed to make me feel at home. Each guide, both the tour escorts andlocal guides spoke very good english and were very knowledgeable. The guides managed to make history very ...

We started with 3 days in Helsinki, then took the high-speed train to St. Petersburg for 3 days followed by 7 days on the Volga River and canals with fascinating stops along the way to Moscow for 3 days. This was our second Viking River Cruise, having taken the Grand European Cruise the year before. Viking does a terrific job all the way with all arrangements including flights, meeting us at the ...

Russia was the first item on my bucket list and this trip met all my expectations. Meeting Russia and the Russians through local guides, no-line cultural events, and on-board language and cooking lessons gave me the trip of a lifetime. No going from hotel to hotel, no looking for tours, and no restaurant searches is my idea of the ideal vacation. The bonus, a glass of wine or beer for lunch and/or ...

Viking River Ingvar Cruise was a huge disappointment and a rip off

I returned on 7/5 from a 12 night cruise on the Viking Ingvar from St. Petersburg to Moscow. This was the worst cruise I have ever been on for a variety of reasons. Viking's ads look so wonderful and tempting, so four of us signed up for the cruise. Unfortunately, reality doesn't jive with their ads. Our ship looked like a dinner cruise, not a high end cruise. Our cabins were very nice. However, ...

8/9/13 Started at the Star Alliance Business Class Lounge at LAX. Understand that a new lounge will soon open. That's good because the current lounge is shabby. Not much of an upgrade from US airline club lounges. Food consisted mostly of bags of chips. Not much else. Lufthansa flight # 457. Upper deck. Business Class. 747-800. Beautiful plane inside. Big screen tv and storage next to the ...
