We visit St Petersburg, and cruise to Moscow. This is the beginning of our two week river cruise on the Uniworld River Victoria, a fantastic river boat that carries about 200 passengers, and has an all-Russian crew. We started in St Petersburg and went north on the Neva and Volga rivers, through many locks, to Moscow. We give you our impressions of places we visit and tell you fun stuff about what we did.
It was tough for us to do this blog for St Petersburg Russia to Moscow Blog while we were on the cruise ship. The Internet connection was spotty on the Uniworld River Victoria. Apparently it was a satellite connection, which was slow, and certainly we could only use it while we were moored at a dock.
In Russia today, or maybe just on a cruise ship, they don’t have a way to give you a consistent connection. At best we could connect for a few minutes at a time.
