Viking Rurik travels the waterways between Moscow and St. Petersburg, exploring part of the vast network of rivers, lakes and inland seas that was Russia's first natural highway. While cruising the Volga, Svir and Neva rivers you will be charmed by the country's overwhelming beauty. Ancient Russia comes to life in the famous Golden Ring cities of Yaroslavl and Uglich, with their historic kremlins and monasteries. Viking Rurik, built to European standards and renovated in 2007, features two restaurants and two bars, three walk-around open air promenade decks, a sun deck, a sauna, a hairdresser, a doctor, and 105 comfortable outside staterooms each equipped with air conditioning.
