There are many river vessels in Russia and the M/S VASILIY KANDINSKIY is one of the best. This classic river vessel, built in Germany in 1992 and completely refurbished in winter 2013-2014, is a well-run motor ship that is the ideal size for voyages on Russian waterways. During its refurbishing, done according to the highest European standards, special efforts were made to create maximum comfort. All cabins are outside (with the exception of the lower deck) and have a promenade walkway outside the cabin and large picture window that can be opened (except lower deck). Every cabin has a private bathroom (completely renovated in 2013-14), individual air conditioning/heating control, radio and wardrobe. Outside you will find spacious decks with loungers, chairs and tables, allowing you to admire the beauty of the rivers and landscapes. The staff on board offers friendly, efficient service to make you feel at home. You will be pleasantly surprised by the level of comfort in the air-conditioned public areas, such as a reading room, a conference hall and two onboard bars, which also afford majestic views of the passing countryside. There is also a souvenir shop, doctor's office, beauty salon and laundry service. You will be impressed with the level of service and food quality of our two delightful dining rooms, which offer continental and Russian cuisine as well as specialties of the surrounding regions. Traditional entertainment programs include evenings filled with live concerts, dancing, quizzes, lectures on Russian history and traditions conducted by experienced licensed guides.
