5 Distinct Advantages of Volga Dream


The Only Family Owned and Operated Vessel in Russia

With 5-star service from beginning to end, the Volga Dream sets the standard for cruises in Russia. She can carry up to 100 guests, far fewer than most other ships and that results in a very intimate family atmosphere aboard. Our shore excursions are conducted by the best guides who are all carefully and individually selected. Both programs offer comfortable group sizes, a maximum of 15 with Platinum and no more than 25 guests on the Gold program.


Luxury Central Hotels

We at the Volga Dream are absolutely convinced that while in Moscow and St. Petersburg, guests should stay in great hotels, perfectly positioned in the historic hearts of those great cities. You won't waste precious time caught in traffic jams between the river port and city center.

I can not speak highly enough of the comfort & ambience of the MS Volga Dream, it has exceeded all of mine and my husband's expectations! Your staff of all levels are to be highly commended for their courteous, professional and friendly manner in which they carried out their daily duties.

Christine Mayne

Volga Dream Platinum in 2016

My wife and I and four friends wanted to do a boat trip between Moscow and St Petersburg and didn't want one of the fleets of ships with 200 passengers. And in addition to size we found a number of negative TripAdvisor reviews on many of those larger ships. We found the Volga Dream which takes only 100 passengers and which is privately owned by a Russian family.

Rick Dowden

Volga Dream Gold in 2016

We enjoyed every single minute of the holiday. The hotels were situated centrally we could walk around easily being able to walk into the square where the Hermitage was just around the corner from hotel was amazing. The boat was a lovely experience.

Jacqueline Lapwood

Volga Dream Platinum in 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed my cruise in Russia. All the guides and staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I would certainly recommend the trip to any of my acquaintances who might be interested. I do not usually like to travel in big groups, but because the English speaking group was so small, I was able to forget my concerns.
