Built in 1990 and totally renovated in 2003, the Viking Peterhof is one of three river ships
in the Viking fleet travelling the russian river system. The Viking Kirov and Viking Surkov being the other two.
With its all-inclusive cruise program that includes both airfare and shore
excursions, a river cruise on the Viking Peterhof not only provides a comprehensive
cultural and historical experience but is also an exceptionally good value.
Explore the natural highways of Russia with a trip down the imperial
rivers and lakes of Russia. The development of numerous man-made canals
now makes it possible to travel great distances from the remote forests
of Kareliya and Red Square in Moscow, to historic St. Petersburg. On
your journey through historic Russia, you’ll see the grand monuments and opulent palaces of the Czars. And you’ll have time to browse the extraordinary collection of art in the Hermitage Museum, and enjoy world-class theatrical performances in St. Petersburg and Moscow. As you travel through the breathtaking countryside, you’ll see fortified monasteries, beautiful cathedrals and quaint villages—all from the comfort of your Viking River Cruises ship. Most members of the ship's crew are from central and eastern Europe. English is the official onboard language, and all crew speak fluent English as do tour guides escorting shore excursions, and all public address announcements are made only in English. The cruise manager is the main contact person onboard the ship and is on hand to respond to individual passenger questions and requests throughout the cruise, and also organizes shore excursions and introduces guest speakers.
The 20 deluxe all outside cabins on the Viking Peterhof at 237SF are large and spacious while the standard cabins at 90SF are somewhat small with a bathroom that takes some getting used to.
The ship has 2 Restaurants, 2 bars, library, sun deck, promenade deck, souvenir shop, sauna and massage, hairdresser, laundry service, medical center. Voltage is 220V so you will need an electric adapter to plug in a curling iron, electric razor, or camera battery re-charger.
