Looking for an unforgettable river cruise in Russia? Your adventure begins here. A Russian Odyssey Aboard the MS Rossia is a remarkable 11-night river cruise which takes you from majestic Moscow to stunning St. Petersburg, along the river Volga, Sheksna, Svir and Neva, as well as past the beautifully striking lakes of Russia. 

Your river cruise journey takes in the captivating capital of Russia, where you’ll experience a guided tour with a local expert – seeing the iconic Red Square and Lenin’s Mausoleum. Our time in Moscow continues with visits to more fascinating landmarks that illustrate Russia’s culture, history and heritage. By day four we are cruising down the Volga, Europe’s longest river, before arriving at Uglich. As the cruise continues, be inspired by the incredible cities of Yaroslavl, Goritsy and Kizhi on this immersive Russian river cruise. Not forgetting the calm and clear lakes of Lake Onega, which we cruise along before arriving at the River Svir. Towards the end of this magical experience, enjoy a few days moored in St. Petersburg to truly discover this beautiful Russian city.

Our river cruise affords you the opportunity to learn more about Russian culture than ever before, with on-board lectures on history and demonstrations including cooking, language and local handicrafts. There’s even live entertainment every night on-board the MS Rossia, with musical performances of songs known and loved around the world, along with more traditional tunes.
