MS Rostropovich

As one of the most luxurious ships ever to cruise the Russian waterways, the 5 star MS Rostropovich is the perfect showcase for the legendary and historic towns and rivers of Russia’s Golden Ring, between Moscow and St Petersburg. Originally built in 1980, the ship was completely rebuilt in 2010. The result is one of the most modern and elegant vessels to travel the Volga River and one of only a few with an elevator and private cabin balconies. In 2015 our guests have been more than delighted with the high standard of the ship, friendliness of the crew and the interesting, leisurely included tour programme. Dedicated on board guides provide a personal touch and the restaurant staff make each mealtime a pleasure. Our Special Offers make this a real VALUE FOR MONEY option. With 212 guests in 106 staterooms, this is definitely our vessel of choice for our discerning customers. Now known by her Russian name, MS Mstislav Rostropovich, after the celebrated Russian cellist and conductor, this ship operated as ‘AmaKatarina’ in previous years.

MS Rostropovich Customer Reviews

We really enjoyed our cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow. The MS Rostropovich has been tastefully refurbished and everything on board was very comfortable. The crew were friendly and professional. Our guide/s were knowledgeable and helpful. Such clever young women! Dining was a pleasure with a delightful waitress (Irina) who smiled and giggled her way through our attempts at speaking Russian. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and plenty of it. Our shore excursions (included) were really interesting and we visited some very unique and special places. On-board entertainment was varied and the musicians were brilliant. Russian classes were fun. We had a relaxing time on the still waterways and enjoyed watching the varied scenery from our balcony. Everything was very well organized, communication was excellent and everything we did was smoothly and efficiently transacted. The whole experience was wonderful and we’d thoroughly recommend it. We would certainly recommend using SAC – Becky, whom we dealt with was just superb in all respects. Thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime.

I have nothing but praise for your service pre -tour and everything went like clockwork. As for the cruise itself it was excellent. We were happy with accommodation, food and tours.
