River cruising in Russia

Russia

Once described by Winston Churchill as “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”, Russia has long harboured a sense of intrigue among cultured travellers. Join Scenic for an exclusive river cruise on the country’s slow-flowing Volga, and begin to unravel the mysteries and secrets of this multi-layered nation.

Outstanding Luxury on the Waterways of Russia

One of the best ways to experience the contrasting wonders of Russia is to tour its great rivers, and our luxury 5-star ship, Scenic Tsar, introduces a new level of luxury river travel to the country’s waterways. This elegant ship has been custom built to cruise the majestic waters of the Volga River, allowing you to experience the very best of town and country in one seamless journey. 

Launched in 2013, Scenic Tsar was the first new-build river cruise ship introduced to the waters of Russia for over 25 years, marking a new era of luxury river travel on the Volga. At 204 metres in length and with a guest capacity of just 112, this handsome ship offers a real sense of space without forgoing intimacy, comfort and style.

With a collection of 56 generously-sized suites, the majority of which benefit from a balcony, and a range of tantalising dining venues; Scenic Tsar is your luxury home-from-home as you set out on an unforgettable tour of the wonders of Russia.
