We traveled on the Volga river aboard the Russian ship, MS Zosima Shashkov from St. Petersburg to Moscow this past June (2016). Although I worried about many things (cabin size, meals, condition of the ship, any language or culture difficulties, etc.), it was one of the most beautiful, enjoyable, and memorable trips we've taken (and in the past five years, we've been to Paris, Rome, Edinburgh, and London). All the Gate 1 Travel guides and front desk helpers (Karina, Irina, Maria, Gayana, and Aiya) were fantastic and their Manager Tanya was absolutely incredible (she delivered my lost bag from the airport to our cabin door at 3am)!! The ship was immaculate (thanks to our daily maid Anna!); the cabin was really comfortable (there's more than enough room for luggage under the bed, a closet with hangers for clothes, a shower that really is easy to use once you get the hang of it, a refrigerator, and each cabin had a large window over the small table between the beds (each bed was probably about 3' x 6' or so..we were fine, but a really tall person might be uncomfortable)...
Russian river cruises
While you're in Russia, a cruise down its greatest rivers can be a perfect opportunity for you to better understand the Russian soul world-known for its mysteriousness. A Russian river cruise is not a simple trip from one point to another - it's an unforgettable experience that will remain in your memory for all your life. While cruising down the river in Russia, you can enjoy unique Russian cuisine and breathtaking folk music and decorative arts and immerse yourself deeper in Russian history while visiting greatest Russian cities.
And, of course, a Russian river cruise is probably the best way to travel if you want to fully enjoy the beauty of gorgeous Russian landscapes. Just imagine how spectacular the sunset on a river can be!
