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 ...

Have wanted to visit Russia and in particular St Petersburg for a long time. The Waterways of the Tzars cruise was a superb way to do so. From the moment we landed in Russia until the time we left we were looked after. The Viking Akun more than met expectations. The cabin was fine with good amenities, everything was spotless, the food was very good and all staff were helpful, friendly and ...

For my first Viking and river cruise, Waterway of the Czars was an awesome choice. Excursions were very informative, with great tour guides at every destination. I only chose one optional excursion to the Peterhof Palace & Park, and it was one of the best by far. It was great to have some free time in most destinations to roam around and explore. Dining was a pleasure at every meal. I tried ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

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 ...

My sister and I choose this cruise due to our desire to see Russia. Our other motivation was Viking was offering free airfare in the year 2018 for this cruise. The ship shape is differ from the long ships Viking uses for their other river cruises. But once the cruise was started and we could feel the open waters we were cruising we understood the reason why. We absolutely loved our ...

Not So Great - Viking River Cruise

Enjoyed the experience of having gone to Russia but would not cruise Viking ever again. Viking does have the best itinerary as far as river cruising to Russia is concerned and that was our reason for selecting them. Unfortunately the shipboard experience fell far short of what was advertised and what we expected. Don’t believe the ads you see on tv. Food, mediocre at best. Service, ...

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 ...
