Russian river cruise

I would be interested in people's opinions on the best river cruise lines serving the Moscow to st Petersburg. This is our first cruise and we would like to have a really nice experience in terms of comfort and amenities. Thank you.

I would recommend a Russian company called Vodokhod.

Thanks. I think we have narrowed it down to Viking and Uniworld. Any thoughts?

Why not type Viking and Uniworld into the forum search box then and read dozens of reports?

Anyone familiar with the volga dream. This seems to be the only cruise that includes nights in the city.

Amazingly, if you type "Volga dream" into the forum search box, you will get what you want immediately!

Every cruise offers "night" tours in the city. Or at least in St Petersburg and Moscow. We just returned from a Vodohod cruise and had a very good time. We did not book the night excursions but chose to wander into the cities by public transit on our own and we were not disappointed. Moscow downtown at night is lovely and the subways and streets are clean and safe. We did not speak or read Russian but had no problems. If you go in the summer the sky is light until very late. Do some research on the subways and you will be amazed how easy, clean and efficient the public transit is.
