Great trip, but too long...

Loved this idea of spending our 25th anniversary in Europe. All went well-great staff, good food, nice ports, but wished there was more free time and fewer ports to visit. Had to get up pretty early for the free ...

Waterways of the Tsars!

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 ...

The crew is so in tune with the guests, they know your wishes before YOU do!

Heard good things about Viking. Everything was very nice EXCEPT the horrifying drive to the airport from river boat. THE DRIVER WAS THE WORST!!!!! So many asked that he slow down, and be cautious. He did not seem ...
