Anyone cruised Russia on more than one line? What was you favorite? Any info would be appreciated in helping me make a decision. What are the best months to cruise Russia?You can find a lot of options for the Russian River cruise. I did a lot of research and found several choices. They are two general categories.
Hi Hot2Travel,Thanks a bunch Sheila
If you go to the "Roll Call" section of Cruise Critic and hit on "All River Cruise Rollcalls", there is a continuing thread about "Russian River Cruises". There are many posts there which you can read about this very different area of cruising.
You shouldn't need your birth certificate for your Russian visa. All they need is your passport, along with all the other items such as your invitation letter, application, etc.
I would call or email though to check on the birth certificate. I had to order a replacement for myself last year and it cost me almost $50 after they tacked on the shipping costs.
Hope that helps. Congrats on your passports. We leave ourselves to Russia in 11 days and I'm SO ready!!!
