Founded by Vladimir Esakov, the company and vessel are owned and operated by the Esakov family. Completely redesigned and refitted, our charming river cruise ship is kept scrupulously clean by a professional crew for whom safety is always a priority. With just about 100 passengers aboard and a crew of 60, the Volga Dream boasts the highest crew-to-passenger ratio on the river.
In June 2007, MS Volga Dream set sail on her maiden river cruise from Moscow through Russia’s waterways with international travel agents and critics aboard. Few believed that the highest European cruising standards were possible in Russia. We proved they are and even enhanced the experience with traditional Russian hospitality and care.
