My review will be short because it could be almost word-for-word identical to that of RecaLondon's review for Sept of 2013. Same ship, same experience, with only a few differences:
we booked thru TravelAllRussia, based in St Petersburg, Moscow and Washington DC. Our agent there, Anna was excellent. My mother and I originally booked for May of 2012. Six months prior, her home was struck by lightning and the entire second story burned. Anna moved our deposit to May of 2013. After the house was rebuilt, we decided to sell it, and move her to South Carolina ( she is 85, time for her to be near family) and Anna moved our deposit to May of 2014. No hassles, no quibbles about trip insurance!!! Our $2100 USD pp fare included the cost of the Visa, and the transfer from the Moscow airport and to the train station in St Petersburg...
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!
Inspection of National Show “Kostroma”
On 13th of September 2016 representatives of VODOHOD attended National show “Kostroma” in order to monitor the product offered as Optional tour on board of VODOHOD ships. As usual multinational audience was amazed by magnificent costumes, incredible skill of the dancers and wonderful direction. The performance presents the storyline of development of Russian dances throughout the ages as well as represents dances of different nationalities living in Russia. Once again we had a chance to ensure the quality of the dance show cleverly presented by members of the troupe.
So hurry to book VODOHOD cruise and do not forget to reserve optional National Show “Kostroma” while you stay on board in Moscow!
