We had a wonderful MS Volga Dream Classic St. Petersburg - Moscow trip!
The hotels in Moscow and St.Petersburg are superb and convenient to restaurants and great shopping and sightseeing.
The ship is very clean with good service and good food. The places we visited along the river are very interesting.
One thing can be improved: the excursions in St. Petersburg- We did not have time to see both Peterhof Palace and Hermitage museum in one day. The lines were very long. Maybe one of them can be combined with Peter and Paul fortress which takes less time.
On our cruise to Moscow there was a traffic jam on the river because of the fog and the locks we had to disembark on a river bank and walked to wait for the bus on the roadside. I do not think it is anybody's fault though some people were not happy for the inconvenience.
Another incident was when two of the people in our group got lost on the way to the Metro in Moscow.. They should not have wandered away from the group but the tour guide also did not have a correct headcount. Again to me I consider it as something memorable instead of blaming on the tour guide.
We enjoyed the trip very much and would not hesitate to recommend you excellent service and the cruise to our friends. Again thank you!
