MS Volga Dream II

There are dozens of passenger ships in Russia, but how do you choose between them? All are fine vessels built during the Soviet times in 60s through early 90s and refurbished in the past decade, our own MS Volga Dream being the pearl of the current fleet. But time goes ahead quickly and so do technologies in navigation, design and safety. Having mastered our software during the last 8 years with Volga Dream, we finally bring along innovations in the hardware and proudly introduce MS Volga Dream II!

This state-of-art craft is now under construction in Croatia and in June 2015 will be the first deluxe passenger ship built from scratch and introduced to the Russian waterways since 1991.

Never before passenger accommodations on a river boat were so lavishly spacious. Deluxe and Veranda Staterooms are located over four decks and occupy 211 sq ft / 19.6 sq m each. On two middle decks you will find luxurious two-room Executive Suites each 362 sq ft/ 33.6 sq m in size and exquisite Writer's Suites each occupying 481 sq ft/ 44.7 sq m. Writer's Suites have 5 forward looking windows and each is individually designed in the style of Russian writers - Tolstoy, Bulgakov, Pushkin and Dostoevskiy. All Veranda Staterooms and suites feature spacious balconies.

When on a river boat you want stay outside as much as possible. Our outside decks are done on fine teak wood and offer a plenty of observation options. You may enjoy scenic view from your private balcony or walk along the wrap-around Sun deck. Forward-looking observation point on the Sun deck is a perfect spot for taking pictures of the ship passing through the lock or approaching the island of Kizhi. In a good weather have your meals outside on the Middle and Boat deck and dine as forests and villages pass by or enjoy the sunshine and refreshing drink in the Lido Bar.

Volga Dream is the first Russian river boat to adopt SOLAS-2010 rules. Requirement for all ocean going liners, SOLAS (Safety Of Live At Sea) is an international standard which ensures that safely regulations are strictly observed and the vessel is equipped with necessary safety equipment.

Spread over four decks, the onboard facilities include a delightful restaurant which accommodates all guests in one sitting. The lounge is a pleasant space for relaxation with large panoramic windows and bar area.
