Lev Tolstoy Cruise Review by Gail Snell

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2016
  • Destination: Russia River

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.

The excursions that were offered seemed to be a way to try and please everyone’s interest. Especially we enjoyed Moscow city tour. The excursion buses were always neat and clean. The drivers were professional. We always felt safe in their care.

The local tour guides were always informative and interesting. We were provided information in a smooth and relaxing style that made each visit to their city, one that we would be able to appreciate long after we got back home.

We have been on many cruises in the past and given the size of the MS Tolstoy, it is world class. At the same time very personal.

The cabins were good, considering that we spent little time therein. The maids were very polite and we always found the cabins clean and neat.

All in all, the MS Tolstoy compares exceptionally well to the larger 18 storey liners! Next year we're going for a cruise to Astrakhan

Cabin Review

Cabin Junior Suite 112

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

Kremlin is the site which every tourist should visit, that's why it is a crowded place in the afternoon. They said that the lucky ones may meet the President there
