Crould not wait til September so we booked a River Cruise. This will be a 18 days River Cruise on the River Don and Volga in Russia. We leave home on April 19, 2005.
We will start out in Moscow then fly to Rostov-on-Don to board the M/S Tikhi Don. We will cruise on the River Don then enter the Volga River to end up in Moscow. The cruise is called TATARS, COSSACKS & THE GOLDEN RING.
Have always wanted to see this part of Russia. Now is our chance.
The boat has just been renovated to European standards. It has many confortable facilities.
More will come after we get our documents.
Count down: 2 months 2 days til M/S Tikhi Don
7 Months 2 days til Glory
Cruising on Ruby Princess: September 22, 2015. 10 Days, From New York to Quebec City. My 98th Cruise!
This cruise sounds so adventurous! By the time you're done you'll be Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. Whoops, wrong country! .
You two are the type who will really enjoy an escape like this. It's like a history lesson. I just know you are going to thoroughly enjoy yourselves!!! Lynne
Ray and Helen:
I can see you now going down the river singing "Volga Boatmen". <VBG> This sounds like a wonderful way to see Russia and be able to spend enough time to really enjoy it. Betty and I want to do a Rhine River cruise for the same reason.
I hope you two have a wonderful time.
Mike (Who also wants to be Ray when he grows up)
