Emerald Waterways has added the MS Nizhny Novgorod to it’s chartered river-ship portfolio. In 2021 she will be sailing the Russian waterways including Europes longest river, the Volga, providing guests with some truly unforgettable experiences.
Ignore what you read and see in the press. Ask anyone who’s been to Russia for their opinion and they’ll tell you it is the polar opposite of how it is portrayed. It truly is one of the most incredible countries to visit on the planet. I’ve been fortunate to visit Russia on a few occasions and each time have returned home wanting to experience more. In fact, I loved my time in the country so much, I now have a home in Moscow.
For 2021, the MS Nizhny Novgorod will feature two itineraries embarking in May next year.
Imperial Charms of Russia river cruise
This 11-day river cruise allows guests to discover both traditional villages and vibrant cities as they sail from St. Petersburg to Moscow. Highlights include a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of St. Petersburg, a Shashlik lunch in the picturesque village of Mandrogi, a visit to the Monastery of St. Cyril on the White Lake, and a guided tour of Moscow – exploring the Kremlin Grounds which is the former seat of the Government and a historical, architectural and artistic reserve.
A reverse 12-day Russian itinerary
New for 2021, guests can choose the reverse 12-day itinerary for an extra day in St. Petersburg at the end which allows guests to visit Peterhof and see its jaw-dropping collection of gilded fountains, state-lined lanes and picturesque canals that make up the Lower Peterhof.
Prices for the 11-day itinerary start from £2,195* per person (based on the 11 September 2021 departure), calling at St-Petersburg, Mandrogi, Kizhi, Goritsy, Yaroslavl, Uglich and Moscow. Guests booking before 31 August 2020 will save £1,000 per couple across all departure dates.
Prices include return flights transfers, 10-nights onboard the MS Nizhny Novgorod ship, all onboard meals and selected drinks**, all tipping and gratuities, shore excursions and exclusive events and experiences.
