MS Amakatarina

MS Amakatarina

Exclusive to APT in 2011, the ms Amakatarina is Russia’s most modern, comfortable and spacious river ship.

Thanks to a full $14 million reconstruction in 2010, it boasts the most spacious accommodation on Russia’s waterways and is the first of its kind to introduce Outside Balconies, which are a feature of over 70% of staterooms.

A Wealth of Public Areas On Board

Between your time exploring the attractions of Russia’s waterways, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained on board.

Atop the Sun Deck, fresh air and superb views await. On the Boat Deck, the elegant Panorama Lounge, with its fully stocked bar, is a superb area in which to relax and take in the approaching sights. The Conference Hall, meanwhile, hosts a range of fascinating lectures and presentations as well as a variety of concerts, light entertainment and movies – all of which offer guests an insight into the history and culture of the region.

For your cruising convenience, a lift accesses all four decks, the reception area is staffed 24 hours a day and a gift shop is stocked with souvenirs and items you might find helpful.

Amazing Cuisine, Spectacular Views

The dining experiences you’ll enjoy aboard the ms Amakatarina are, quite simply, outstanding. Because both of the ship’s restaurants are located well above water level, they offer diners lovely riverside views during each meal. And with each gourmet meal, as well as wine with dinner, included, you’re sure to savour the delightful mix of Russian specialities and international cuisine.

High Staff-to-guest Ratio, Outstanding Service

With nearly one crew member to every three guests, service on the ms Amakatarina is far superior to that of any other Russian river ship. The hospitality staff are intuitive, friendly and helpful, a doctor is present at all times and six guides travel with you to answer any questions and provide commentary on the passing sights.
