River cruise St Petersburg to Moscow

We are considering the Titan river cruise "Russia's Royal Riverways" from St Petersburg to Moscow on the MS Rublev. Has anyone any experience of this and advice on what to do and not to do? When is the best time to go?

Moscow, Russia

I do not have any experience and can not advise on what to do, sorry. But just something to consider: here is a link to a web site of a Russian company that owns and operates MS Rublev, where you can also see their price list for the same trip from St Petersburg to Moscow to compare.

MS Rublev is owned and operated by a Russian company Mosturflot: http://mosturflot.com/?page_id=70

Titan must be one of many Western resellers.

You can book the same cruise directly on Mosturflot Russian site http://www.mosturflot.ru , but this might require some google translating.

As for when to go, you really don't have a huge choice as rivers in Russia are frozen most of the year. May and September are likely to be colder but you get the "fall colors" in September. The summer is statistically warmer, can even be really hot, but one can never tell with the weather.

all russian river cruises between moscow and st. petersburg are pretty much the same, the itinerary is similar, boats are as well with most of them built in Germany.

Besides the actual itinerary they offer optinoal tours which you can book onboard, these however tend to be quite expensive and are depentant on the number of people who would join a particular optional excursion.

Are you going on the Rurik on Sept 4? We used the recommended visa company and sent our info in 2 weeks ago. We chose the white glove service so they pretty much handle it. We will see if we get the visa in another month or so!!
