Default MS Tikhi Don

This is the first of pictures that will be taken on the Russian River Cruise leaving home on April 19. 2005. Thought you would like to see the ship that we will be sailing on. The cruise will begin in Rostov-on-Don cruising on the Don River then into the Volga River ending in Moscow.

Imagine being in one of the rooms near the water line?

It is so exciting. Does the ship rock as much as on a River Cruise as opposed to an Ocean Cruise?

Should be little or no motion on a River Ship.

Our cabin is on the 2nd Deck the most forward cabin on the Starboard side. Note that all passengers have huge windows. (3 decks). The crew have the lower portholes.
The ship is 54 feet wide and 425 feet long. Passenger capacity is 220 and we will have 104/Russian/International crew. There are elevators.

Thanks for posting the picture, Ray. I know we'll all be looking forward to hearing all about the cruise and seeing the pictures when you return.

We sure hope that you enjoy this trip, Ray and Helen. For the record, have you two ever been on a cruise before this? If not, please go over to the Practical Advice forums and ask lots of questions. <VBG>

Have a great cruise, guys. We've wanted to take a European river cruise for some time now, but we'll probably settle for sailing the more conventional Rhine and Danube rather than the Russian variety. However, your cruise will no doubt be anything but boring.

Keep us posted. Maybe we can get together with some CMs later on, as we have the past two years, and swap cruising war stories.

Jack & Kim
