Cruise Planner

So here you are planning your cruise. There is a dozen of things to think about before you leave your house and drive to the airport to board your flight. And though many of our cruises in Russia come all-inclusive, and thus completely carefree for you, there are programs that do not feature transfers and visas, excursions during the cruise and extensions in the biggest cities. All of that can also be booked through us. And most likely your personal destination specialist has already offered you the best available options. If not, we recommend that you continue browsing this section to learn some valuable travel insights from the experts.

Choose a cruise

It is important that you choose the right cruise. Factors that you should consider include the time of the cruise, the type of ships and the type of cabin that you will be comfortable traveling in. Remember, river cruise ships have smaller cabins and it is best to consult with a river cruise specialist before making a reservation. Our helpful specialists will always be glad to assist you in choosing the right cruise.


Make a reservation

Once you know which sailing, ship and cabin you are interested in, you should place that cabin on hold. Remember, river cruises are usually booked far in advance and to ensure that you have the best selection (and the best rate) we advise that you book your cabin far ahead. Practically, a 20% deposit is enough to place your cabin on hold. You can place it, or pay the full balance, either online or by calling us.


Plan for your trip

Now that you've secured your cabin it's high time to start planning for your trip. You will need to think of three things: airfares, trip insurance and visas. You may also want to make prior arrangements for transfer service from airport to the ship. And, in case if you would like to extend your cruise program with few days in Moscow, Saint Petersburg or another city, you will need to make plans for that.
