CRUISE BY RIVER
The cruise is operated on motor ship: Volga Spirit
Volga Spirit

The river motor ship «Volga Spirit» is of project 302, and she was renovated in 2019. The ship has several musical features that will delight music lovers. For example, in the "Music boutique" you can listen to any of the presented discs and buy it if you want. In the" Music lounge " evenings — before and after dinner — you will play music in the styles of lounge, jazz and Blues.

One of the most popular places on Board is the Music Hall. Here you can feel like a famous performer: there is a professional karaoke, a large selection of songs, high-quality sound and even backing vocalists. Once in 3 days here you can become a spectator of the musical.

If you are traveling with a child from 2 to 12 years, we are waiting for you in the club "Bremen town musicians". Children over 3 years old can play here even without parents-they will be looked after by a professional nanny-animator. Meanwhile, adults can head to the pastry shop, concert or sun deck to relax or play mini Golf.

The price includes three meals a day. Breakfast is buffet style, and lunch and dinner are on a bespoke menu. The restaurant offers a choice of meat, fish or vegetables. For young travelers, there is a children's menu.

Special theme nights await you on long cruises. On a trip longer than 7 days we organize a dinner of Russian cuisine, and on a flight of 10 days-a dinner of European cuisine. Going on a cruise that lasts more than 15 days? Don't forget to take any white item of clothing, it will come in handy for you at the white dinner.

Bar on the ship is a cozy place where you can sit with a Cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a cocktail, and order something in anticipation of lunch or dinner. A nice bonus bar is located in such a way that from its Windows you can watch the river scenery.

A professional art group is responsible for entertainment on Board. It prepares concerts, creative and dance workshops, competitions, theme parties and discos, as well as a special children's program.

During most of the stops you can go on a tour. In many cities you can choose one of several excursions, deciding what is more interesting for you, or buy an additional one.
