The vast network of Russian waterways are served by numerous standard class vessels. Now, for the first time, they are able to offer a luxurious vessel, the Volga Dream, which entered service in spring 2007. This elegant vessel has been totally rebuilt from a vessel that originally accommodated over 200 passengers and now accommodates just 100. The result is a splendid and spacious vessel which offers the most superior accommodation and services on the route. The atmosphere on board is friendly and informal and, although your daily programme will be busy ashore, the cruise is also planned with time to relax on board. The Russian crew who all speak English will do much to add to your enjoyment whilst on board.
