MS Tikhi Don (220 passengers) is a very well-maintained ship of project 301. In 2005 and in 2015 she has undergone thorough renovation and refurbishment and obtained elevator, better arrangements of internal premises and Western decor with portraits of Russian tsars and famous nobles of the Russian Empire. The ship has undergone complete general reconstruction to meet the demands and requirements especially 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. International cuisine and Russian dishes are served. Crew: 104
