Cruising Russia

How can you experience Russia thoroughly in one trip? How do you take a photo of a famous landmark that cannot be found online or in a travel guide? There is only one answer – go on a river cruise. After all, rivers are the great arteries of Russian largest and magnificent cities.

Here are the key advantages of a river cruise:

  • A cruise ship travels up to 400 kilometers a day. During your trip, you can watch forests turn to open fields and green hills. When you come ashore during stops, you are in the very places of Russian history.

  • You are about to visit between 3 and 20 cities depending on the duration of a voyage. Only a ship can take you to the solitary islands of Karelia - Valaam, and Kizhi, as well as to the Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea. No matter your itinerary, a kaleidoscope of memorable experiences and dozens of extraordinary photos are guaranteed.

  • A cruise ship is one of the most comfortable ways to travel. There is no need to plan your journey within Russia or worry about accommodations or meals. Relax and let us take care of everything. Just imagine: modern and inviting cabins, restaurants with a varied selection of meals, bars, and on-board entertainment program. Onshore, experienced guides are ready to provide tours in English.

6 Reasons Why You Should Take a Cruise


Stress-Free Planning Means

It's such a relief when you don't have to worry about the logistics of your holiday! A cruise is a convenient way to visit multiple destinations whilst avoiding all the anxiety that can come with dealing with local hotels, restaurants and transportation. There's no more driving around in the middle of the night looking for a hotel, no maps to follow and no need to worry about finding a decent restaurant.


Enjoy Multiple Destinations Whilst Only Unpacking Once

More importantly, a cruise holiday allows you to unpack and get settled in your cabin without the hassle of having to move your belongings as you generally would when you're visiting multiple destinations. To me, there's nothing more annoying than just getting settled in to a hotel, and then having to pack up everything once again, all in the name of travelling to the next destination.

According to CLIA, taking a cruise may be beneficial for your health! Besides options for healthy dining, down time/activities, relaxation and socialization. There's nothing better for your health than feeling happy.
