Russia River Cruises

Na Zdorovie. Raise a toast to the land of the Tsars as you sail down Russia's historic Volga or Svir rivers. Volga voyages typically sail between Moscow and St. Petersburg, and the Svir connects Europe's two largest lakes with a stop in St. Petersburg on the way. Tour landmarks like Moscow's Kremlin and Red Square and the Catherine Palace and Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
