The MS Nikolay Chernishevsky underwent refurbishment in 2012 and currently carries up to 254 passengers as it sails the waterways of Russia spanning from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
Named after the famous Russian democrat and philosopher, the five-deck ship features a simplistic theme and has facilities including two restaurants, a solarium, sauna, coffee bar and piano bar.
Dining onboard the MS Nikolay Chernishevsky is a delightful mix of European and Russian cuisine, served buffet-style at breakfast and with menus offering great choice at lunch and dinner.
The chefs pride themselves on serving spectacular Russian dishes representing the colour and depth of the surrounding region, as well as catering for vegetarian meals and other special dietary needs that should be advised when guests book.
Guests can expect great cultural enrichment such as live performances of Russian folk music and classical music, along with Russian culture- and history-themed activities such as Russian singing and nesting doll painting.
There will also be Russian tea ceremonies and vodka tasting sessions hosted to provide a highlight of the tastes of Russia.
The MS Nikolay Chernishevsky ensures you'll always have a place to pass the time onboard. For example there's actually three bars ensuring guests can grab a drink and enjoy the views: two front-facing bars, and a bar in the restaurant on the Boat deck.
A unique feature for a river ship is the solarium situated on the sundeck, offering a place to relax high above with great unimpeded views of the Russian scenery.
