The cruise on “MS Surikov” was a pleasure, a smooth trip on the water (from St Petersburg to Moscow) due to the very professional crew. The ship is very clean all around, with comfortable rooms. The reception staff is very friendly (thanks Dasha). However the 5+ stars are going to the restaurant team, beginning with the fantastic chef and his... More

The Russian cruise from Moscow to St.Petersburg aboard the Viking Truvor was our most favorite cruise to date.From the time we landed in Moscow until the time we departed from St. Petersburg we had an incredible experience. The boat became our home away from home and the staff and crew went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.... More

Really enjoyed this 12 day trip. 3 days in a great hotel in St Petersburg, 6 days on the Volga Dream to Moscow and 3 days at the Marriott Hotel. The staff were all very good but one special person, Oksana, our waitress on the boat, stood out. She was lovely, and looked after us very well. The food was... More

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 12 day trip from St Petersburg to Moscow. 3 days in each city and a connecting cruise between them on the Volga Dream. All our guides were first class. Each one had a vast knowledge of the places we visited and added their own individual touch to the tours. As... More

On a glorious day, with beautiful sunshine, I managed to go on a boat cruise with colleagues. I walked from my hotel Venets which took me about forty minutes to reach my destination. We had walk down about 300 steps before we made it to the ticket office. Despite the long and tiring walk, I must admit the cruise was... More

The cabins (although not... More

I frequently travel solo and have wanted to see Russia. When I had a chance for a double cabin at a solo price, I jumped at it. I knew it would not be luxurious. My ship was similar to the Shashkov and Russ described in previous reviews. The room was tiny but functional, with the interesting shower/sink combo previously described.... More
