Cruising the Russian waterways between St. Petersburg and Moscow is a great way to see some of the Russian countryside. Many ocean-going cruise ships visit St. Petersburg on cruises to northern Europe and the Baltics, but for those seeking an in-depth experience in just one country, a Russian Waterways cruise is a marvelous way to discover the culture, history, and people of Russia. Since Russia's capital is landlocked, a waterways cruise is the only way to get to Moscow on a ship.
I sailed on the Grand Circle Small Ship Cruises' M/S Rossia, and loved the ship and itinerary. The small ship sailed the 900 miles separating St. Petersburg and Moscow in seven days, and we passed through 21 locks as the Captain navigated the rivers, lakes, canals of the Volga-Baltic Waterways.
