From 30 August to 9 September 2014, I journeyed from St Petersburg to Moscow with a Solo Traveller Group on the MS Russ organised by Annette (A Travel with Me Selected Journey).
I thoroughly enjoyed the smooth cruise on the river, lake and locks. In my view, the excursions and inclusions offered good value for money. All meals were included with a variety of choices between some Russian and Western food on the menu. On board entertainment was also available.
I had a wonderful time and the trip was fabulous going beyond all of my expectations. I would recommend the MS Russ if you wish to experience a stunning, vibrant and colourful part of Russia without the cost of 5 star type holiday. The architecture and the vastness of the countryside is breathtaking and amazing to see. I am planning to return to see more of this extremely unique, interesting and colourful country. One caution if you want luxury on board then perhaps this holiday is not for you.
