MS Volga Dream

The MS Volga Dream is the queen of luxury travel on Russia’s rivers. Its owners transformed this classic 1959 cruise boat into a regal passenger vessel, with spacious interiors dominated by beautiful wood paneling and crisp golden accents. The Volga Dream holds 109 passengers at capacity, and is served by a crew and staff of 60 who cater to every desire. Flat screen televisions bedeck the roomy cabins and feature international satellite programming (important for those with television serials and sports matches that simply cannot be missed). The homey lounges feature plenty of space to stretch out, with Wifi internet access for those who cannot leave their work (or social networking page) behind. The main highlight of the ship is its lecturing program where renowned professors from the world's most prestigious universities introduce you to the history of Russia, its culture and traditions. For five-star comfort, luxury, and elegance, the MS Volga Dream is the only choice on the rivers of Russia.

What a wonderful experience! I stumbled upon "Travel all Russia" by chance, and I am so pleased I did. From the first phone call to me in Australia from Natalia in St Petersburg, (how unbelievable was that!) to the many emails from her and her staff to answer my (I am sure) seemingly endless questions throughout the following 15 months, we have been afforded a first class service by this tour operator. Everything went according to plan, even with my mobility limitations, and the recommendations for hotels for our extra days in Moscow and St Petersburg were excellent. We loved our time on this top class ship, the entertainment, especially the guest lecturer Ludmilia, and the attention of such an enthusiastic, friendly and well-trained staff. We have made some wonderful international friends, and we hope these links can remain. A highly recommendable experience and, although we have seen only a very small part of Russia, the tour has afforded us a picture of an amazing country that we would love to visit again.
Thank you for such an enriching experience!

I recently had the privilege to take my family on a trip to Russia on board the Volga Dream. Having been in many different parts of the world and having experienced much of what the world has to offer I must commend you on your choice of staff on board the vessel.

Although there may be many more extravagant vessels out there, it is doubtful if any ones staff exceeds that of the Volga Dream in terms of its commitment and dedication. In particular, I want to make reference to a gentleman by the name of Zeljko Gojavic. What struck me as different about him was his unconditional and heartfelt response to questions posed, and his consistent willingness to assist and make guests feel at home. As I am sure you will agree with me, this is exactly the type of person that distinguishes a ship’s staff and crew from the many other crews out there competing for the upper echelon traveler. His personal touch truly elevated the experience for my whole family to a different level.

I also want to commend you on your chef. As part of our South African operation we own several catering institutions and hoping that we share a sense of humor want to remark that if these two individuals did not live so far away from where my base of operations is, chances are they would probably be working for my organization and not yours.

Thank you once again for a most memorable experience. I hope when my son is older to return to the Volga Dream to show him the Russia I have come to know and love.

Warmest regards,

I want to sincerely thank you and Travel All Russia for a truly marvelous trip! You and the staff worked tirelessly on our behalf, and everything worked out wonderfully. The hotel arrangements you made in Moscow and St. Petersburg were excellent. The hotels were first class, in the most convenient areas in both cities, with helpful, friendly staffs.

The Volga Dream was just that – a dream! The ship had outstanding staterooms, fantastic food, competent and friendly staff, and interesting and entertaining tours. There were opera singers and a string quartet on board for delightful entertainment each night.

The extra days in Moscow and St. Petersburg were a perfect addition to an already great trip.
The effort that you and the staff put in to ensure that I was able to get a visa, even while I was stationed in Pakistan, was nothing short of miraculous. And then getting the visa to me, in London, in time was amazing.

I am recommending you and Travel All Russia to everyone who is impressed with our story and pictures. Please feel free to use my unqualified endorsement as you would like. Since I do a good deal of international travel, I know that such expertise and dedication is a rarity in a travel company today, but Travel All Russia has both in plenty.

A package will be arriving soon from Pakistan with small gifts for you and those who helped with our trip. Again, thank you for a trip whose memories will last a lifetime!
