While a long way off - beginning to look into my (our - DW obviously included) next cruise - probably in May of 2009.

Exploring a possibility of doing Ukrainian Waterways (Kiev - Odessa via Dniepr River & Black Sea). Anybody have done so lately and if so - what vessel were you on and what are your sentiments?

Thanks in advance

What company are you using for your Ukranian cruise? I hope you will post a review after your return because I think there are a number of us who are considering that itinerary and would like some "first-hand" information.
