Absolutely everything about this cruise, the personnel, the food, the accommodations, the excursions, embarkation and disembarkation were spectacular.
We chose to go to Russia because having been to Eastern Europe we were very interested in seeing this country. The stops along the way were so different and incredible to experience. The people could not have been nicer. We had fabulous guides who were extremely knowledgeable and very interesting personalities. We learned so much and very different from what we had learned in school. We would repeat this itinerary if given the opportunity. We enjoyed the food very much, especially the local/regional dishes. The wait staff was helpful in explaining the dishes and we loved meeting the head chef and having a galley tour. He was very personable and went out of his way to walk through the dining room and chat with the guests.
Our cabin staff was fantastic. She knew our preferences and made sure that each day, the items we requested were in our cabin. It was extremely clean and always completed when we returned.
We loved the location and set up of the cabin. It was slightly larger than other cabins we had been in and was very comfortable.
Great overview of the city in the comfort of the bus, with a great guide.
Very different than imagined! Loved seeing all the different buildings and architecture.
Breathtaking experience. Such beauty and opulence, beyond description.
Could not believe the extensive amount of items so we focused on a very small section. Very crowded with tourists, even though it was October.
Te fountains had just been turned off, but it didnt diminish the splendor at all.
