Sail Date: Sep 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Outside Stateroom

I wanted to visit St.Petersburg and Moscow, and wanted to avoid a bus tour, valuing the chance to stay in the same place and not have to re-pack. I also looked forward to the lectures-which were excellent- and the walking tours. All our tour leaders were very well educated, knowledgeable, and professional.

The ship was quite comfortable, the meals were delicious , offering buffet and menu items that featured local offerings, and the daily tours were excellent. Staff was uniformly proficient and friendly. We enjoyed the journey down the Volga waterways and the visits to villages and cities en route.

The distance between the Moscow mooring and the sites we went to see was significant, and the traffic was thick, but we managed.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Outside Stateroom

Cozy, comfortable. You can hear through the walls, so be prepared for that eventuality.

Port Reviews

St. Petersburg

Fabulous. We were lucky that weather was good. And we got to see the fountains in full splendor.

Moscow

Treasures of the Armory were wonderful. Big crowds, but manageable.

Moscow

Go into GUM and enjoy the free time to take in the vastness of the Square.
