Scenic Tsar is the first ‘new-build’ ship to be launched onto Russia’s waterways for over 25 years. It is also the first boutique ‘small’ ship to join Scenic Tours ever-growing fleet of luxury vessels. There are just over one hundred guests onboard, so you get a real sense of space, accompanied by an intimate atmosphere. Each cabin exudes a reassuring level of luxury and an impeccable finish.
As well as your spacious five-star suite, you’ll delight in stepping out onto your very own private full-sized balcony. They bring a genuine breath of fresh air and make river cruising all the more pleasurable. Almost all of our staterooms and suites boast their own balcony, allowing you unwind, take in your surroundings and enjoy some alone time in peace.
Start off by choosing from one of 15 airports to fly from - whichever you choose, you won’t pay any extra. When you get there, enjoy onboard meals, drinks with lunch and dinner, flexible tours and enriching experiences - all are included in the price of your holiday. We haven’t forgotten about the finer details like transfers, port charges, tipping and Wi-Fi either – it’s all covered.
Our Scenic Enrich activities offer an array of highlights included exclusively for our guests, such as an exclusive ballet at the Palace of Prince Vladimir, where you will be treated to a glass of sparkling wine and enjoy a private concert in this beautifully preserved royal residence. And with our Scenic FreeChoice programme, you may choose from a great range of activities in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
We’re proud to have been named ‘Favourite River Cruise Line’ at The Telegraph Travel Awards in 2011 and 2012 as a result of our commitment to flawless service. Our entire team is dedicated to delivering the highest standard of service throughout your entire cruise – whatever you need, all you need to do is ask.
Lunch and dinner features local and international dishes, making your journey through Russia a voyage of discovery, providing you with inspiration you can take back home to your own kitchen. And the icing on the cake? A choice of complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks to accompany your onboard lunch and dinner.
Food plays a very important role in a Scenic Tours river cruise. On Scenic Tsar you will enjoy delicious breakfasts with an extensive and varied menu, designed to give you a great start to the day, and lunches offer both buffet and à la carte options. Off-ship the dining experiences are often set in spectacular or historic settings, and range from traditional local dishes to world-renowned restaurants.
