Experience Imperial Russia with eWaterways and Volga Dream Cruiser

Experience imperial Russia on The Volga Dream

eWaterways continue to provide the most unique travel experiences available on water with a new itinerary for 2012 on Europe's largest and longest river - the Volga. The exceptional 11-day Russian Cruise and Stay package takes place on the Volga Dream, a luxurious ship which journeys along this emblematic river and other important waterways to Russia's 'Golden Ring' cities. Starting in Peter the Great's 'Window on the West' St Petersburg and ending in the medieval yet modern capital Moscow, this cruise promises a real exploration of this vast country's vistas, history and culture.

The all-inclusive Volga Discovery holiday is crammed with excursions, informative tours and the best of Russian cuisine. The impressive programme includes visits to the remarkable Palace Square and a tour of the Hermitage Museum at the Winter Palace in St Petersburg; a tour of the magnificent Church of the Transfiguration with its 22 onion domes on the island of Kizhi Island; a trip to the Cyrilo-Belozersky Monastery in Goritsy and the 16th-century Monastery of the Transfiguration and Church of Elijah the Prophet in Yaroslavl as well as a city tour of the beautiful 10th century town Uglich before a visit to the renowned Kremlin, the Flea Market and the Dmitry Blood Church in Moscow.

The elegant Volga Dream accommodates just 109 passengers in 56 well-appointed spacious cabins, each of which feature a window, private facilities with shower, individually controlled air-conditioning, Bathrobes and slippers, satellite flat screen televisions and mini-bars and a welcome fruit basket. With a crew of 60, including an expert tour guide, the standard of service is impeccable. One of the highlights of the cruise is the onboard dining experience. With the à la carte evening dinner taking a different theme everyday, the Chef brings fine dining to each guest night after night. From the fresh steamed sturgeon to a rack of lamb or steak au poivre, tiger prawns and authentic Russian Borsch, every meal is a chance to marvel at the culinary excellence of the kitchen. The onboard facilities include a single sitting dining room where complimentary wine is served with meals, a chic lounge and bar, fitness centre, spa treatments and library with internet access.

The 11-day Volga cruise departs on a number of dates from May through to September 2012. Prices start at £2,059 per person (including taxes) which includes 4-star hotel stay in Moscow (2 nights) and St Petersburg (2 nights), a 6-night deluxe cruise aboard the Volga Dream (full board basis), all transfers, tours and excursions, house wine and soft drinks with meals onboard and lunches and dinners in local restaurants. Flights and visas are not included.

This cruise itinerary operates from Moscow to St Petersburg or St Petersburg to Moscow depending on dates selected.
