Russian culture and traditions

Throughout your cruise, you’ll visit new towns, cities, and discover Russian culture, finding out many new things along the way. Meanwhile, a whole range of onboard activities will help you delve even deeper into the Russian culture.

Guests always look forward to:

Lectures about Russian history: join our tour leader on a fascinating journey through the highlights of Russian history, from Ivan the Terrible and Peter the Great to the Soviet era and modern times.

Russian language lessons – what could be more interesting than coming back from a cruise armed with the most commonly used Russian phrases? You can do just that aboard Moonlight Sonata and Swan Lake vessels.

Dance masterclasses, doll painting, jewelry and soap making await you. You’ll be invited to visit the culinary workshop, where the head chef will teach you how to make real Russian blini (pancakes). Afterwards, taste your creations with an addition of sweet toppings or sour cream.

Pick a number of different immersive shows and performances. For example, experience “Russian tea-drinking” ceremony accompanied by folk music and games. We’re convinced that our guests won’t forget “Vodka-show”, during which they can try Russia’s most famed drink. Apart from this, the cruise program features live music shows, folk ensemble performances, and movies at our concert hall. The ship can offer a library with a good selection of English-language fiction.

We’re certain that our guests will get to know Russia intimately and have a truly unforgettable vacation.
