Wanted to try one before we decide to take one to Russia.
We had a wonderful time. Met so many nice people and still keep in touch with a few.
The crew was great and very helpful. The tours we took we enjoyed very much. The tour guides were knowledgeable and fun. Even on the couple days of rain we had a good time. Terry was our cruise director and he couldn't have been more accommodating. he was on top of all activities and very informative on all aspects of the tours and what to do and expect. We had to change boats due to high water and there were a couple of people who gave him a hard time but he handled the situation with professionalism and grace. I would have thrown the complainers overboard. How was high water his fault?
Room was smaller than I expected. We requested a upgrade to a suite if possible and they said they would check but nobody got back to us. The boat was not full. There were a lot of cancellations.. I must say however , It was kept very clean by the staff. When you are rushing to go somewhere sometimes you leave the room a mess. ( unintentionally)and it was always nice to come back to a nice clean room.
