Glad to Experience Russia by ExperiencedTrav

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Moscow has a very industrial, Soviet Era feel, but cool to see Red Square, The Kremlin and St. Basils. The stops in between Moscow and St. Petersberg are brief and frankly, there is not a lot to see/do. I felt rather like the cruise needed to stretch to find places to stop to create a "cruise". The on-board talks about Russian and the Russian lessons were excellent, as was the Vodka tasting/lesson. Cruise Extension hotel was lovely and St. Petersburg was an interesting and beautiful city.

Observing Russian History from a Luxury River Cruise by Cruiser54132410

In spite of the rain and cold, Viking Cruises, the staff, and tour guides helped us to create memories we cherish and want to share with others. This type of group travel has quickly become one of our favorites and we plan to do more of it and invite even more friends to join us.

More than expected by CruisinGeysirs

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This wasn't high on my bucket list but the price/timing was right. This was a 14 day river cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow via the Neva and Volga Rivers. We spent 3 days in St Petersburg on the front of the cruise and 3 days in Moscow on the end of the cruise and visited a number of smaller vllages and towns in between. Crew was excellent as was the food and the guides were fluent and extremely knowledgeable. Happen to spend my birthday in the small town of Uglich and had an opportunity to visit a local household where we ate cake, drank tea and had 3 shots of home made vodka before 9:00am. Would definitely recommend this cruise to any one - St Petersburg is fascinating as is Moscow (Red Square at midnight is especially memorable). We were very lucky to do this during the "Golden Autumn", an event that doesn't happen that frequently - the leaves were all in color during the entire cruise. So much to see, so much history and culture to absorb.

Disapointing by JillN

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We were expecting better from Viking as we had traveled with them in Europe. This was supposed to be the best, new, upscale $8 Million remodel. The food and service sub par to say the least. Alot of the rooms have an obtrusive center column from probably making two small rooms into a larger one. We missed ports due to fog and they offered very little to fill our time or entertain us. Too mush time spent on buses in traffic and a sense that other than the guides nobody really cared much about customer service.
