The Mikhail Lomonosov (named after a famous Russian physicist) can take 202 passengers and has a crew of 110.
Throughout our journey from Moscow to St Petersburg, we found the Lomonosov very comfortable. It was well run by the Germany-based company Viking.
The Lomonosov is 129 metres long and 16.7 metres wide, which is enough for a good walk round the decks, whilst not being too far to travel to breakfast.
The cruise ship has two restaurants, two bars, a library, sun deck, sauna, doctor, hairdresser and laundry.
