This is because our itineraries are designed to reveal the best of the entire region to our travelers.

Our unique cruise ships are specially designed for both inland waterways cruising and for sea voyages. They feature outside cabins that allow picturesque views of the passing countryside. All units are comfortably furnished, air-conditioned and have private bathrooms with showers. Suites on some of the cruise vessels also have jacuzzi. The dining service offers International, and Russian, and Ukrainian cuisine, as well as gourmet specialties of the visited regions. The cruises offer English speaking tour guides to accompany you on shore excursions, daily musical performances, lectures and folk shows. Choose an area to explore and let us tailor a package that will suit your needs and suit your budget.
