We wish to place on record that we were delighted with our cruise on MS Tolstoy. All the staff were professional and accommodating.
The Dining room was very good. Breakfasts were top class, with a good variety. The lunch and dinners were absolutely fantastic. Despite our dietary issues, the kitchen staff went out of their way to serve food of our choice as we are very fussy with our diet. Nothing was an issue.
There was always something on the ship (when we were not docked) to do. We had Russian language lessons and are now using it as much as we can. It is useful indeed when travelling around Russia.
There's no point in booking a j. suite, as you'll spend almost all your time outside. Loads of enrichment and leisure activities as well as substantial meals made us fall asleep as soon as we lay down in the evening
