Review of Scenic Tsar

The Scenic Tsar boat cruises on Volga River river in Russia.

Scenic Tsar cruise ship (Alexander Grin)

Scenic Tsar was launched in 2012 under its original Russian name "Alexander Grin". This is the first small ship (as opposed to riverboat) in Scenic Cruises fleet. The cruise ship is owned by a 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.

Shore excursions and tours (included in every port along the itinerary) are guided by locals. Guides are all English-speaking.
