  • Internet Access - For guests' convenience, all Viking ships have Internet access, as follows:

Alternatively, each ship has a few computers for guest use; there are desktop machines in Russia and laptops in Europe that guests may use free of charge. Guests who bring laptops to Russia may wish to bring a LAN cable for use in their stateroom; this may work a bit better than the wireless LAN in rural areas along the river.
    • Ships in China - There is an Internet caf? with desktop stations for guest use, free of charge. There is no onboard wireless network in China or Southeast Asia, so you will not be able to get Internet service on your personal computer while on the ship, although you may be able to do so during hotel stays.
    • Please note - Shipboard service may be unreliable during certain parts of the journey. The Internet connection functions via cellular service or satellite downlink, and there may be times when reception is not possible and/or when the connection is quite slow.

Wonderful Trip

| Russia
Viking does a great job of taking care of travelers, planning nice excursions, making sure all are safe and secure, and offering relevant workshops on the country and regions as we travel along. We like for everything to be as inclusive in price as possible. There are no surprises.

Fabulous experience. I can't say enough good things about Viking.

The 2-sides of Russia

There are two sides to Russia: great cities Moscow and St. Petersburg, and quaint Golden Ring towns like Yaroslavl and Uglich. Spend several days touring the cities’ important landmarks: Moscow’s Kremlin, Red Square, St. Petersburg’s Catherine Palace, Peter & Paul Fortress and the Hermitage, and also discover the history and culture of Russia’s heartland.

 

Norse Heritage

Like Sineus, Truvor was a brother of Rurik, and was also among the first group of Vikings to travel to ancient Rus where the intrepid group settled. Truvor, whose name means "our faithful," took charge of Izborsk, an area near what is now Russia’s border with Estonia, controlling these lands for Kievan Rus. Yet within a few years of securing his territory, Truvor died. Rurik consolidated his brother’s lands into his own, further increasing the size and the strength of the Rurikid dynasty and the Russian empire. It was an empire than soon rivalled Byzantine in power and in status. The Rurikid dynasty reigned for more than 700 years.
