Thanks for posting! Its good to hear of a successful experience. I'm considering them but had heard you couldn't get gluten free food due to the language barrier.
Rajawali could you post also when you get back with both good and bad experiences so we can see if this was an exception? I also want to do a Moscow - St. Petersburg.
I apologize for the tardiness in posting my experiences on the Moscow-St.Petersburg cruise on Viking. Please refer to my response that I entered today (5/14/08): "River Cruise Moscow to St. Petersburg".
