As a feng shui consultant / environmental psychologist, I am very critical about physical spaces and how they affect our feelings and behavior. The Volga Dream is SUPERB. The ship, the food, and the service are excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and always fills your requests. Thank you for one of the most excellent vacations and by far the best river cruise we have taken!
