Russian River Cruise: Waterways of the Tsars on Viking Helgi

  • Destination: Russia River

This was my first cruise experience and it was a blast. Hats off to Viking Cruises for the very efficient handling of everything: from the flight bookings, to airport transfers, embarkation and disembarkation to and from the ship, the tours, the accommodations. The staff was just great, from the kitchen, restaurant, housekeeping, entertainment to the tour guides. I have spread the word to family and friends that if they want a great cruise experience, they should try Viking first. There is nothing like a river cruise vs. an ocean cruise. It just makes a difference having a few hundred people to thousands of people traveling with you.

I cannot say enough of the guides who were very knowledgeable and just a fountain of information.

Catherine Palace

A beautiful palace by most standards. The opulence was unbelievable and glad that this is for the history books rather than the present. A very educational and informative tour.
