  3. Volga Dream
On board now and loving it. When researching I did not find too much informaion. The Volga dream is the name of the company and it has been wonderful. Quiet unknown in Australia. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Food more than adequate, wine flows freely for lunch and dinner. Awesome staff and the organisation was first rate. Could not fault them or the trip in any way. I would not take the bottom cabins though. only have a small porthole. Some rooms have had an issue with smells coming up through the pipes , but not in our room. Would love to come back and do another cruise with the company again for sure. The fitness room is not that fantastic however. I would have liked to have had a bit longer in each of our ports of call even for just one more hour, they felt a bit rushed. The excursions were at a gentle pace.

Dear Bouchee, Wow! You must win the prize for the quickest review, writing it while still on board is way above and beyond the call of duty! Of course we’re always happy to read positive comments but it’s especially nice to see our staff praised, they work incredibly hard and are very dedicated to our lovely ship and its passengers, it’s great to see their effort recognized, thank you! Yes the lower deck cabins do have portholes, some people rather like the traditional maritime feel but it is a way to cater to a broader range of budgets. We’re slightly concerned to read of an issue with odours, we will of course look into that but it probably came from an external source as we sailed through something happening in all that nature along the route! Yours, Volga Dream When you’re ready to come back for another cruise, we’ll be delighted welcome you aboard again and show you even more of our Russia.

Cabin Review

Cabin 210
There is very limited cupboard space and only 2 very small drawers. If you are a size 20 plu you may not fit into the shower as it is very small. Travelled with my mum and it was fine for us. Loved the large windows, and one we could open from the top if you wanted to.
