What's your question? Good price. Not enough time in Moscow nor St. Petersburg. ( I spent an extra week in each.) The optional tours were greatly overpriced. Same breakfast every day. I would have welcomed variety. Cabins were "cozy." Luckily we brought 2 med sized suitcases. Only 1 bottle of water per day so would advise you buy a couple of 1/2 gallon or gallon bottles first chance you get. I shopped at supermarkets in Moscow and St. P...They are wonderous!! Even found peanut butter!

I see the ship doesn't look too great. Did you do all the excursions? Where did you stay in St Petersburg? I may add on some pre's

I took this trip in 2011 and liked it a great deal. All the ships on Russian rivers are the same in part because there are many locks for them to fit in. The foods are ok and at any rate you do not have an alternative. I think all the excursions are fine and reasonably priced except that the Moscow circus disappoints. I did not have issues with water.
Russian trips call for more research in advance. Otherwise you will not fully appreciate what you experience. But Russian cities can be overwhelming in many practical aspects so I doubt it is a good idea to spend too many days there - if you want to do so it will be a good idea to know the alphabets.
