The fore-located Navigation Bridge (called "Wheelhouse" on riverboats) is passenger-accessible only during the organized "Bridge Tour". The adjacent Captain's Suite and officers quarters are inaccessible to passengers.
Theater is the ship's Cinema that doubles as Conference Hall / Meeting Room / Concert Hall / Dance Lounge / Silent Disco, and is served by its own Bar. The lounge also serves the cruise company's enrichment program. Here are hosted lectures and media presentations themed on Russia's history and culture. Port talks (by professional tour guides) provide information on visited regions, river ports, nearby towns, shore excursions and tours. Here are also held traditional tea ceremonies, Russian language lessons, dancing and singing classes, master classes on vocals and musical instruments, blini and vodka tastings, live shows and musical performances (classical and Russian folk music, concerts), nightly disco (with headphones).
The aft-located Solarium is the ship's Sun Deck with outdoor seating (loungers, deckchairs, 4-seat tables) and Giant Chess Set.
Adjacent to the Theater is a small outdoor Gym (covered fitness area with exercise machines).
