MS Vasilyi Surikov Cruise Ship


Do to a drop in bookings all of our passengers on board the MS Surikov will be merged onto the larger MS Rublev for the 2015 sailing season. The MS Rublev will sail on the same dates with identical itinerary and ports of call to the Surikov  - therefore there will be no changes needed to air connections or Russian Visas already purchased. For the Rublev deck plan, specs and photos click here

One of only 6 ships built for the Communist elite the MS VASILYI SURIKOV was remodeled from ground up in 2007 to feature over sized cabins with enlarged picture windows that open, bathrooms with totally separate shower stalls, vanity mirrors, individual air conditioning, big towels, soaps, shampoos and hairdryers! In 2014 cabins were upgraded to include mini-refrigerators and Flat Screen TV’s with international TV stations (CNN/BBC/EuroSport) and Wi-Fi internet was added to all public areas.
