Ship layout "Maxim Gorky"
For many, despite covering almost one eighth of the world Russia remains a mystery, one of the world’s unknowns. It’s rich in history, cultural intrigue and natural wonders combine to make Russia a must-visit destination for anyone seeking something truly unique.
Russia has so much to offer. From an authentic tea ceremony to a day spent exploring old churches, every moment is designed to blow you away. Because the true magic of Russia is that it’s unlike anywhere you’ve ever been before.
The network of spectacular rivers and lakes are an attraction in themselves. Ice-blue waterfalls cascade over mountainous outcrops at Plutorana Plateau; tiny islands float in the midst of the expansive Lake ladoga; and Moscow’s canals offer a unique viewpoint for the city’s sights.
We organise cruises from Moscow, St Petersburg, Samara, Nizhny Novgorod and Kazan
The onion-topped buildings and twisted-spire churches of Moscow and St Petersburg are iconic, Russia has so much more to explore. There are frescoes by Dionisius, a 45,000 year old mammoth and a city built on frozen ground. Whichever cruise you embark on, you’ll be amazed by everything you uncover about this continent.
Thank you very much to the crew, to all the employees of the ship for a wonderful journey. A varied and eventful program made the cruise unforgettable. I would like to say special thanks to Irina Pavlovna, Ekaterina, our waiter Denis and Victoria, managers Ekaterina, Victoria, Nadezhda, Daria and, of course, the chief manager Lyubov, and to all the staff! Thank you! I would like to believe that Vodohod will have a positive impact on the development of the region. P.S. this is our 4th cruise with "Vodohod".
The overall impression is excellent. The service on the ship fully complies with the international level (I have experience both along the Danube River and along the Mediterranean Sea - I can compare). An unusually attentive and warm attitude of all the staff, which, unfortunately, is not common with us. Thank you all, it was a perfectly organized work, next time we will travel only with Vodohod"!
Overall, the whole experience of this expedition is excellent. An interesting, beautiful and informative trip. Meetings and concerts, big and small private museums have left an impression on us, so did the conversations and stories of people, as well as long hikes to the Stolby and to the dead railroad. These impressions are warm and positive. I would like to express my gratitude for the organization and selection of meetings. The organization is excellent, Lyubov's work is professional (as well as that of the whole team)! I would like to note the brilliant work of Irina and her team, everything related to meals is impeccable, even the lunch boxes! The waiters were always friendly and helpful. It is great! Apart from that, I would like to say about the reception desk. Where did you find such beautiful, kind, sympathetic and patient girls? They are always ready to answer all the questions and provide assistance. The professionalism and clarity of the work of the entire team allowed us to complete this difficult journey without incidents. Many thanks! We will return, but this time we will take the cruise to the Arctic or Antarctic. I would like to have Andrey Vasilyevich as a captain and with his team!
Thank you for this beautiful ship of Siberian design, for the delicious food, for professional management and for staff organization.
