Itinerary:

Russian Cruise Journey on M/S Volga Dream is a dream come true...

A luxury ship for 109 passengers with 56 well appointed cabins, each, with either a window (Sun Deck, Promenade Deck, Main Deck) or porthole (Cabin Deck). All cabins are equipped with state of the art amenities: air conditioning, mini-bar, safe deposit box, telephone, flat screen TV offering international satellite TV programs, and radio music channels. The passengers are catered by a crew of 60 professionals. All of your meals are included onboard and each is carefully planned from a varied menu of Russian and European recipes. Your stateroom will offer a river view from a large picture window, private shower and bathroom facilities and individual climate control. Your boat has an elegant dining room, a lounge with bar and a spacious sun deck- all with spectacular views. We highly recommend spending several days in Moscow and St. Petersburg before and after the cruise. This is a cruise only itinerary.
