Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom

We have always wanted to travel to Russia and see the sites, meet the people and learn about this incredible country.

We started n St. Petersberg and loved that we didn't have to stay in a hotel, but went straight to the ship and just had to unpack once. Our tour guides were fabulous and also provided lectures about Russia history on the ship.

Each small town we sailed to had its own personality and wonderful souvenirs. There was free time and good free Wi-Fi.

The cabins were perfect with comfortable beds and nice size bathrooms. The verandas had comfortable chairs. Food was good and a good variety.

The ship staff was remarkable and work so hard. The wait staff knew your name the first day and called you by name immediately, They remembered what you prefer to drink whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic. It was amazing!

Moscow was wonderful and we signed up for Moscow at night which was incredible. Red Square and the Kremlin during the day and then at night walking and by boat.

This cruise was amazing, informational, and we met great people from around the world.

The Kremlin is interesting, but I guess it wasn't what I thought it would be. Great to see it.
