i chose to book with a Russian company as I felt we would have a more authentic Russian experience. It was excellent!
Each day we stopped and had a tour of a different town/city.
We had sufficient free time which was much appreciated.
The tour guides were absolutely fabulous. Their knowledge was encyclopedic. Many, if not all, were university professors during the school year - it certainly showed. They were so informative and enthusiastic.
The food was very good and there was a good deal of selection. There was plenty to eat if you were a vegetarian as well.
The pianist was unbelievably good.
The ship was spotless and very well maintained.
Marina was excellent in dealing with the bookings.
I would very highly recommend this cruise with this family-owned company. They bent over backwards to accommodate us and were very attentive to all of our questions.
Excellent and thee bathroom was to die for.
