MS Tchaikovsky (207 passengers) is one of the best and the most elegant ships of our fleet. The ship is named after the world-famous Russian composer - Peter Tchaikovsky. In total there are two ships that make for the elegant composer series in our fleet: the MS Tchaikovsky and the MS Rachmaninoff. Originally the MS Tchaikovsky is of classical German project 301, but her thorough renovation of 2011 and further refurbishments have turned her into an upper class modern river cruise vessel: the ship has lost more than one-third of her passenger berths but incredibly gained in comfort and style. Facelifting is done every year, so the ship is taken very good care of. International cuisine and Russian dishes are served. Crew: 90.
