Motorship “Zosima Shashkov”
Zosima Shashkov, part of Vodohod’s fleet of river cruise ships, is a four-deck vessel that has been purpose-built for sailing along the waterways of Europe. This vessel, which bears the name of a minister of the Sea and River Fleet of the USSR, was built in 1986 and can hold up to 296 passengers. Zosima Shashkov was fully refurbished -- receiving an upgrade to its facilities -- in 2012.
All of the accommodations onboard Zosima Shashkov are outside cabins which feature air conditioning and en suite bathrooms. Most of the cabins -- excluding those on the lower deck -- offer large windows.
Entertainment onboard Zosima Shashkov includes live performances by Russian folk musicians and classical musicians, as well as Russian cultural and historical activities, such as Russian singing, dancing and nesting doll painting lessons. For a true taste of Russia, passengers can take part in a vodka tasting and Russian tea ceremony.
