Lomonosov: our cruise ship which took us from Moscow to St Petersburg


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.

For our cruise on the Lomonosov, we opted for a deluxe cabin, which was twice the size of those on the lower decks, and was indistinguishable from a hotel room. We had large windows that made it easy to watch the world go by whilst in our cabin. Spending the extra on this cabin proved to be a good decision.
