Snapshot

As Laura Bly of CruiseCritic writes: "Despite political pressures that have created one of the chilliest travel climates in Russia since the Cold War, Viking Truvor's regular 'Waterways of the Tsars" river cruises between St. Petersburg and Moscow give Western passengers an in-depth, exceedingly comfortable introduction to the world's largest country [by area]."

Cruises on this ship

River cruising is about destination immersion

River cruising is about the destination probably more so than the ship. While enjoying the creature comforts of Viking Truvor, make sure to take advantage of opportunities to connect with local culture, history and highlights of the places that you visit.  Don't be surprised to see local dishes on the menu or local entertainers sharing music, dancing and stories.

Viking includes daily tours with the cruise fare, which makes the hassle of figuring out logistics less challenging. Most tours are done around lunch and then you are free to do what you choose until the ship leaves the dock.

You will be given a nightly briefing in the evening before dinner to get updates on the next day’s call to discuss the upcoming day’s activities, tours, and logistics. Plan to attend the session to discover highlights of the upcoming town's history, art, food, music and architecture of the cities and towns visited. 

Dining

Viking Truvor has one restaurant. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant. Dinner is at a set time and you are welcome to sit with whomever you wish. When Truvor is not scheduled to leave port until later in the evening, treat yourself to a night on the town and sample cuisine at a nearby restaurant at your own expense, but it's a nice way to experience the local culture.
