We had a wonderful holiday cruising down the Volga river on Lev tolstoy travelling from Moscow to St Petersburg.The ship is owned by a Russian company called vodohod.They have several ships.We booked a junior suite which was slightly bigger than standard rooms.Bathroom was a small cubicle with shower,toilet and wash basin. Everything was very clean .The food was exceptional. The staff and guides were very friendly and helpful.We met people from France,Spain Germany, China and few from UK. We were divided into different language groups with a guide for each group. We visited few small towns and villages along the way. Wifi was available at the library area .There was some entertainment on board.
This cruise and visit to Moscow and St Petersburg made me think that everything you hear about Russia on newspapes is not true.Communism is gone and people are like anybody else. Only thing is they are not much exposed to foreigners mainly due to language problems but in tourist places they all spoke English ..
