MS "Tikhi Don" is a very well-maintained ship of project 301 launched in 1977. In 2015 she has undergone thorough refurbishment and obtained elevator, better arrangements of internal premises and Western decor with portraits of Russian tsars and famous nobles of Russian Empire. The ship has undergone complete general reconstruction to meet the demands and requirements particularly of the North American market. All cabins are furnished identically in a very nice traditional style. In all cabins there is one 120V and one 220V electrical outlets, as well as 110V/230V switchable outlet in bathrooms. Outside promenade walkways, spacious outer decks with cozy sitting areas – all these together with conveniently arranged internal premises make her really a great choice for Russian river cruising. Facelift of the ship is done annually. Crew: 104
