Overview

Russia Ships

More than 20 years ago, Viking began sailing the storied waterways of Russia. Today, our fully refurbished, elegant Russia fleet sets new standards of excellence in this region. Complete with hotel-style amenities, they feature spacious staterooms and suites, an inviting restaurant and refined public spaces.

Rurik

With understated elegance and trademark Viking interiors, this is the very best ship on Russia’s waterways today. Fully refurbished for the 2012 sailing season, Viking Rurik offers private verandas on every stateroom on the upper and middle decks!

Activities

Cultural Highlights

To complement your onshore excursions, take part in Viking's Cultural Highlights-immersive learning and enhancement activities both on board and ashore:

  • Traditional Russian or Ukrainian tea
  • Russian cuisine workshop
  • Russian or Ukrainian ballet or opera performance
  • Cossack horsemanship show

These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Culture Curriculum

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Learn about:

  • The Romanov czars
  • History of Russia or Ukraine
  • Putin and Democracy
  • Vikings in Europe
  • Key words and phrases in the local language

These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.

Dining

Fine dining aboard Viking Rurik

Our chefs create a variety of tasty offerings for you, with freshly prepared seasonal local vegetables, European specialties adapted to satisfy the tastes of our passengers, and homemade soups prepared daily. For breakfast, choose from our selections of pastries, cereals, breakfast meats, fresh fruit and selected cheeses. Or you may prefer a hot dish, such as an omelet prepared to order. At lunch, select from the soup and sandwich bar, or a choice of entrees and dessert. And for dinner, you are treated to a five-course gourmet menu with regional specialties. You can also select from our regional wines to perfectly complement your meal. And wherever you sail, you will find enhancements reflecting your itinerary-it is all part of experiencing the local culture.
