Volga River Cruise travel blog

We are cruising again today. Denise is feeling worse than Mike. Mike went to breakfast and brought Denise some fruit and bagel (she is obviously under the weather). We finally felt good enough to go up and look at a very old church as we cruised past. Then we went to a Russian history presentation given by Misha, one of the guides. It covered the late 1930s to 1985. Denise is napping and Mike is on the shipboard computer. Today we cruised the scenic Volga-Baltic waterway. The waterway connects the Volga to the Baltic Sea. It is over 229 miles and we pass through seven locks, Lakes Onega and Ladoga and the Svir and Neva rivers.

There was a tour of the Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery that neither of us were able to go to. Others said we did not miss a lot - sigh.
