We chose this cruise as we really wanted to visit Russia and this seemed the perfect way to do it. It was our first experience with Scenic. We went in October for the last cruise of the year from Volvograd to Moscow. We knew the weather would be colder but with the right clothing it was never a problem and we certainly appreciated the ease of our excursions with the reduced number of tourists. The organisation of the excursions was most impressive. It exceeded all our expectations in every way. Our cabin was ideal with ample room to unpack everything. The on board service was perfect and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The meals offered a wide variety and were all delicious and included lots of Russian selections which were well worth trying. On board talks about Russian history were fascinating and honest. We even had a very fun vodka party. The language classes were an added bonus. We were well informed prior to every shore excursion. These were amazing and extremely well organised and the local guides all spoke good english and were highly informative. The cruise director - Arty was a wealth of information, had a great sense of humour and ensured everything was just right and all activities ran on time. The other guides on the ship were incredible too. We made some friends for life and the entire trip exceeded everything beyond our expectations. Russia with Scenic is a cruise not to be missed.

Can't wait for next experience with Scenic.

Cabin Review

Very comfortable with a lovely balcony. Always kept clean. Even room to put our suitcases under the bed out of the way.
