Review of Scenic Tsar

Scenic Tsar cruise ship (MS Alexander Grin) cruises on Volga River in Russia. The ship started operations for Scenic Cruises in 2012 under the name "Scenic Tsar". This was the Scenic's first ship (as opposed to riverboat) in the fleet. The vessel is owned by the Russian company Moscow River Shipping and operated under a 5-year charter by Scenic Tours in Russia.Scenic Tsar cruise ship Alexander Grin Scenic's Volga cruise passengers enjoy intimate cruising on a vessel with max capacity of just 112 guests. Being a newbuild river ship, Scenic Tsar was extensively refurbished to meet the line's standards of amenities and services on Volga river cruises in Russia. The ship operates with 14 and 18-nights sailings. Around 93% of all cruise staterooms and suites have their private full-length balconies. The ship provides 4-star hotel luxury accommodations and has all 6 Royal-categories Suites. Passengers on Scenic Tsar (Alexander Grin) are 45 and older, most of them being from Australia and UK.

At full capacity, the boat's crew ratio is 1 to 3,2 guests. The Tsar ship differs from Scenic Cruises European river fleet. It’s smaller, and not quite high-end. The ship has a large lounge, two bars, entertainment area, wellness area (massages and gym), medical centre with onboard doctor. Typical for its restaurants are the international and local Russian cuisine. Shore excursions and tours (included in every port along the itinerary) are guided by locals. Guides are all English-speaking. Modern headsets with GPS are provided everywhere along the cruise itineraries and land tour routes. All passengers benefit from the line's complimentary Wi-Fi on board.

Scenic Tsar cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Scenic Cruises Russia rates. They might be different when you book your Scenic Tours Volga river cruisetour deals, influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates.
