We highly recomend Viking Cruises to all our friends\, and now specialy this cruise in Russia.
Every thing was extremely good\, and we will continue to use this company to do other cruises.

Pros: St. Petersburg was the highlight of the trip

Cons: we spend an extra day in Mandrogy that was to me a lost of valuable time we could use in St. Petersburg

Recommends Viking Helgi? Yes!

Optional tours were very good\, the lectures by our escorts were just great and very informative. the only person that we felt needed more experience in her roll was the Program Director. Also cutting the stop in Mandrogy would have given us an extra valuable day in St. Petersburg.
Service and Staff
the best of all the crew were our waiters. they were very friendly\, but also took care of us like no one else. Thank you Edrick and Renato!!
Cabin / Stateroom
it was just right. very comfortable\, and in good condition
Food and Dining
the food quality and variety was excellent\, and they acomodated the time for dining acording to our tours
Ship Quality
the ship in general was very new in had some upgrades from the ones we traveled in prior trips. 2 110v outlets that prevented for us using converters. in the bathroom a vanity mirror great for us ladies.
