M/S Rostropovich was fabulous

So many cruise boats on the Volga/Baltic waterways but we fee that this boat was one of the best. No one we spoke to could fault it. We booked through Audley Travel and had the cruise as the middle of our Russian holiday. The week on board passed so quickly with so much to do including Russian language, Russian history, cooking, the history of Russian fairytales - believe me, this was far more entertaining than you would imagine. The stop off points were always interesting and very welcome although there was a point that the British could understand NABC, or not another bloody church! Saying that, I wouldnt have changed it for anything. The staff, all of them, were so friendly and helpful I felt quite emotional at the end of the week and believe me, I have worked in the NHS for many years and try not to be too emotional!
