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.
Relax in your five star suite, one of the most spacious on Russia’s waterways and stroll out on to your own private, full-size balcony. Virtually all staterooms and suites boast their own private full-length balconies - where better to relax with a drink and take in the stunning vistas than from your own private oasis?
We include pretty much everything in the price of your holiday; spectacular experiences and flexible tours, all superb onboard meals and drinks with lunch and dinner, and flights from a choice of up to 15 UK airports. There are no hidden extras - we even include WiFi, transfers in Russia, port charges and tipping.
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.
Faultless service is one of the many reasons we were named ‘Favourite River Cruise Line’ in 2011 and 2012 at the Telegraph Travel Awards. From the finest Cruise Directors to the onboard crew and expert local guides, you’re travelling with a team committed to delivering an impeccable standard of service.
Lunch and dinner features local and international dishes, making your journey through Russia a voyage of discovery. 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, 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.
Last chance to enjoy a luxury river cruise in Russia in 2013
Availability is now extremely limited on our remaining 2013 river cruises. If you are keen to enjoy a luxury Russian river cruise with Scenic Tours this year, there are just a few cabins left. With spectacular savings of up to £2,700 per couple you need to hurry as these will sell out soon.
