MS AmaKatarina was completely
rebuilt and refurbished in 2011, enhancing passenger comfort and
convenience. As the largest vessel sailing on the mighty Volga
River, there is no better way to cruise through Russia. The ship
offers state-of-the-art public rooms and elegant cabins, which,
combined with included excursions, quality cuisine and wine with
dinner, will make your cruise memorable.
The cabins are larger than rivals sailing along the Volga; they have either twin or double beds, and en suite facilities with shower and W.C. Upgrades and cabins with balconies are available at a supplement.
