SCENIC CRUISES TAKES IN THE BEST OF RUSSIA ON MOSCOW - ST. PETERSBURG ROUTE

SCENIC CRUISES TAKES IN THE BEST OF RUSSIA ON MOSCOW – ST. PETERSBURG ROUTE

Learn about the real Russia from local Russians, explore the countryside where life is so much different from the cities, and relish in the artwork of one of the world’s most famous museums – The Hermitage. These are just some of the reasons to sail with Scenic Cruises on its Imperial Jewels of Russia itinerary – a voyage of discovery as the Scenic Tsar journeys between the bustling Russian city of Moscow and the Baroque city of St. Petersburg.

Guests experience Russia’s unforgettable contrast of the extraordinary and the controversial — one day visiting the country’s most well-known icon, St. Basil’s Cathedral, the next meeting a real cosmonaut at the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics; even spending time in a 16th-century town used by Ivan the Terrible during attacks against the Tatars. Between Moscow and St. Petersburg, guests visit the mainstream and the off-the-beaten-path including Uglich, Yaroslavl, Goritsy, Kizhi Island, and Mandrogi. This 14-night sailing has departures in both directions between May and September at prices ranging from $7,530 to $11, 805 per person, double; early incentives include savings up to $800 per couple on select cabins when booked by February 28, 2014.

Setting this cruise apart from many of its competitors are its multilingual cruise directors – native Russians who are able to best describe life in Russia as it went through incredible changes during the past century. Brought to life by these expressive guides are the once-in-a-lifetime possibilities offered through Scenic Cruises’ exclusive “Scenic Enrich” activities. Guests are treated to a private Russian ballet concert at the Palace of Prince Vladimir, which was the last Imperial palace to be built in St. Petersburg; they explore the enchanting museum village of Mandrogi; and enjoy traditional Russian cuisine at the old-world wooden Podvorie restaurant in St. Petersburg.

Through the “Scenic FreeChoice” program, included activities provide travelers with the flexibility to choose from a variety of pursuits that most interest them. Guided city tours, a sightseeing cruise on the Moskva River, riding the famous Moscow Metro, visiting the majestic Golden Ring city of Yaroslavl, and seeing the Church of Transfiguration on a walking tour of Kizhi Island are just a few examples.

The Scenic Tsar is the first boutique small ship in the Scenic Cruises fleet and the first new ship to be granted Russian registration in more than 25 years. With a maximum of 112 guests, the deluxe vessel offers the ultimate in Russian river cruising, featuring full-size private balconies in 93 percent of cabins; a choice of two bars; a large lounge and entertainment area; and a wellness space that includes a beauty shop, gym, sauna and spa. The Scenic Tsar features Scenic Cruises all-inclusive cruising: all meals; premium wines, beers and soft drinks served at dinner; tours; entertainment; special excursions; airport transfers; Wi-Fi; and gratuities and baggage handling are all included in the fare.
