Honest Russia

Viking Helgi Cruise Review by wheimsoth

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Outside Stateroom

It was a wonderful exposure to the county of Russia, the history, and the current climate. Having three tour people on the ship full time, really helped. And everything went off like clock work. We were fortunate enough to have one stop canceled because the ice was too thick, so we followed an ice breaker through the ice. Never expected that and it was quite an experience. Once the Russia security made us line up and wait forever to get OFF the boat, even being there several days. Getting on the boat is one thing, but none of us could understand why we had to wait. And all they had was one "portal" for everyone get off and on to go through. A little thing, but having coffee always available, with cookies!, was really nice. I was very impressed with the way it was all organized. I didnt feel we would be left in Russia, except on the underground
