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. Highlights were walking tours in St.Petersburg, the Peterhof Palace, the village of Kizhi, the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and the Treasures of the Kremlin Gallery. This was a remarkable chance to understand Russia’s past and how people there feel about its present.

Deluxe Outside Stateroom

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