Sail Date: Aug 2019

Russia was a total unknown to us - an eye opener of its people and lifestyle in Moscow and St Petersburg.

The three Russian Tour Leaders employed by Scenic were superb - their command of the English language was superb and their presentations were with a great sense of humour. The ship staff were friendly and helpful making the trip a very positive experience.

The day excursions were of great interest and the fact that Scenic managed to get early access to the various musea, churches, castles etc before the crowds was greatly appreciated.

Cabin Review

Cabin luxury with balcony

The cabin layout is good with everything functioning well in a convenient layout.

The only inconvenience was the flooding of the floor when taking a shower as the shower door ends above the bathroom floor instead of in the shower recess. Others complained of the same glitch which can be easily resolved.

Port Reviews

St. Petersburg

Given the short time available we the viewing was short, but we were give exclusivity during the viewing so we had 'front row'.

St. Petersburg

Cold weather, but a great way to see the city from the river and canals

St. Petersburg

An amazing place with beautiful gardens

St. Petersburg

Interesting short pieces - great performances

St. Petersburg

Interesting but not a patch on St Catherines Palace, the Hermitage and Peterhof
