Review of Viking Sineus

The Viking Sineus ship cruises on Dnieper River in Ukraine and Black Sea departing from Kiev and Odessa. This Viking cruise ship is named after Sineus - a Viking prince/chieftain from the Varangian Rus tribe. Brother to Truvor and Rurik, Sineus settled himself on the southern shores of White Lake ("Lake Beloye") establishing the town of Belozersk (aka Beloozero). The Truvor and Sineus territories were later consolidated by Rurik, who established his own dynasty in Kiev to rule over the Kievan Rus empire.
