Russia waterways cruise 

The enigmatic land of Russia has always held a magnetic charm and rightly so.

Cruising beautiful Russia

Russia is a vast and endlessly fascinating wonderland just waiting to be explored. Experience the ultimate Russian river cruise on board Scenic Tsar - a boutique luxury vessel unique to the Scenic fleet.

This is your opportunity to travel the great Volga River in a manner befitting the tsars of old.

From grand Moscow, along the wide sandy banks of the Volga, to magnificent St. Petersburg, a Russian river cruise offers variety and splendour on a scale you won’t encounter anywhere else.

In this vast and impressive land, no two destinations are ever alike, and you’ll find that your experience can change utterly in the space of a moment. Shake hands with a cosmonaut, watch as ballerinas interpret their time-honoured art, tour the royal gardens of the palace of Catherine the Great, and view the towering spires of the Kremlin.

Not only will you be escorted to all the must-see landmarks, a Russian river cruise will let you discover the wondrous hidden gems, not accessible to other travellers.
