MS Excellence Katharina is the new era of our fleet. Come aboard and see what our European designers and construction team have done to transform the former MS General Lavrinenkov into a truly luxurious and upscale cruise experience. The ship was originally named after the Air Force hero of WWII, General Vladimir Lavrinenkov, and was charming and smartly designed befitting a hero of his stature. The new designers reconfigured the interior space to create much more usable space, worked in soft, pleasant colors and made the ship more convenient for the customer. Most cabins now have private balconies. Continental cuisine and Russian Dishes.
