About Viking Akun

Viking Akun has a maximum capacity of only 204 guests, which gives her an intimate and friendly atmosphere. You’ll soon become familiar with your fellow cruisers and enjoy sharing your incredible voyage of discovery together.

From the iconic domes of Moscow to the stunning architecture of St Petersburg, there is plenty of culture and adventure to experience on your Viking River Cruise through Russia and beyond. You’ll get to really absorb the fascinating history and culture of this country and marvel at the fairy-tale palaces and picturesque scenery.

All Staterooms onboard Viking Akun offer river views, so you’ll get lots of opportunities to see and experience the regions you’ll be visiting. There are luxurious Suites which have 400 square feet of space for you to stretch out and unwind in, with plenty of Viking River Cruises deals available for those really wanting to sail in style. All Suites and some Staterooms also offer a veranda, so you can sit outside in privacy and admire the scenery in perfect peace — perfect for a romantic break or special anniversary.

Between your exciting cruise activities you can completely unwind and savour some peaceful holiday time. Lie back for some relaxation on the Sun Deck and soak up some sunshine as you take an afternoon nap or read a good book. Or spend some time in the lounge and bar areas, which both have panoramic views due to their floor-to-ceiling windows. You can mingle with your fellow cruisers, have a few drinks and swap holiday experiences and photos.

There’s also a fine restaurant where you’ll get the chance to explore some delicious traditional Russian cuisine. With its panoramic windows here too you can be sure of some incredible river-bank scenery while you dine.
