When Jean Newman Glock invited me to tour Russia’s Waterways of the Tsars on Viking River Cruises, I jumped at the chance. When I first learned that it was Jean’s 30th time to Russia, I couldn’t understand why she’d visited so often—until I took the journey with her. There is too much to do and too little time to see everything on just one visit.
This was my first experience with the Viking River Cruises, and I enjoyed it immensely. The staff on our ship, the Rurik, was exceptional, and the wonderful Hotel Manager kept us in comfort by dedicating his total attention to our happiness. The crew kept us entertained, and we had moments of pure joy—I thoroughly savored our vodka tasting!
The ship always felt like a home away from home, and I wanted to thank Jens Wehrenberg, Hotel Manager and his team for being such a gracious host. Premium tours are always provided by #VikingTravels, but if you wanted your own private tour, they will be happy to arrange it.
Here is a recap of my adventure, through my camera lens.
Being able to experience my first river cruise on such a premium cruise line was incredible, and I’m so grateful. Thank you Jean and @VikingRiver for the gracious invitation and your generosity. I hope to return to Europe for another adventure on the Viking River Cruises.
