    Unusual is the first word I would use, three trips to one: the time spent in the two cities and the five day cruise that have related ... I admit that most drew me on this trip was a chance to see the Hermitage in fact then I enjoyed the boat trip between infiniti birch forests, Lakes so large that you do not see the banks, towns emerged from the pen of Dostoyevsky rather than Tolstoi, incredible sunsets and a sense of peace. Surprisingly enjoyable life on Board (punctuated by trips to various interesting places), contrary to the usual cruises there was invasion by staff who took care of the animation but the offer was for all tastes (from games to conferences, by the Qi gong to singing and dancing). I have to mention the presence of capto tour and attentive to the various Gianni Bozzano, snags and some fisima passengers: congratulations a remarkable aplomb!
