I'm planning my first trip on Viking (Moscow to St. Petersburg). Is it necessary to go through a travel agent (I never have for previous trips) or can I make all the arrangements through Viking? Their website seems quite informative with a lot of my questions already answered.
I booked our upcoming cruise (our first cruise ever) directly with Viking. I found the customer service extremely helpful. We booked our own flights, as well as an additional night at the end of the cruise. We are arriving a day before the cruise begins and Viking made the extra night hotel reservation for us.

I just started looking at the possibility of a river cruise. The savings with the TA was only $50 & the TA wasn't offering anything with air but Viking had a $500 off deal. I don't know if that's any good but it was being touted on the website.
