I would give it 10 stars if it was possible. Can't speak highly enough of all the staff on board the Scenic Tsar (Alexanderder Grin). We were well taken care of from the moment we stepped off the plane in Moscow to the time we boarded our plane back home in St Petersburg. We felt very safe all throughout the cruise and would recommend anyone thinking of doing the cruise to do it with Scenic. The ship was kept extremely clean and the food was excellent. We had the Royal Suite which had plenty of cupboard space, a two seater lounge, two chairs, a balcony and enough power points for all our needs. Our laundry was taken care of daily as was the cleaning of the suite. The chocolates on the pillows at night were a nice touch. The organised tours were well supervised and we were able to see a lot of Russia which we would not have seen if we visited by ourselves. The onboard activities were well organised and the Russian lessons were lots of fun. Thank you Svetlana for being so patient. The Cruise Director, Diana, was an absolute gem. She was never too busy for a chat whatever the subject. The restaurant Manager, Olga, did a great job looking after everyone's needs and was always on hand if you needed to make special requests etc. The tour directors Svetlana, Elena and Vadim were a wealth of knowledge and ready and willing to answer any questions about Russia, even a few political jokes were made during the course of the tour. Last but not least a big thank you to Kapitan Vyacheslav Kochet Kov for keeping all of us safe on the waterways of Russia.

Cabin Review

Cabin 304
Cabin was well laid out. Bathroom large and very clean with a lovely shower. Double basins and a large mirror
The bed was very comfortable and the two seater lounge and two extra chairs were handy. TV provided English channels and also information channels were great.
The balcony with a table and two extra chairs were great place to sit and watch the world go by.
