Imperial River Cruises
About Imperial River Cruises:
Experiencing the mystery and romance of ancient Russia and Ukraine may seem like a faraway, unreachable dream in the current economic climate, but Imperial River Cruises is doing its best to keep that dream within reach. The 2013 schedule features trips to Russia and Ukraine, including the classic waterways of the Ukraine, Black Sea and Dnepr River cruises from Kiev to Odessa, and great Mother Volga Cruises from the Baltic to the Caspian Sea. You can cruise three rivers, two seas and five countries from Kiev, the first capital of Russia, to the ancient, timeless city of Istanbul, Turkey, on one of Imperial's most popular cruises. Take 20 leisurely days to cruise from the Baltic to the Caspian Sea, getting lost in the variety of cultures and nations on the Volga River. Or sail between Moscow and Perm to the strains of Peter Tchaikovsky.
Well-traveled adults who prefer the intimate setting and slower pace of a river cruise, who enjoy a very international crowd and are looking for a different experience, particularly in the areas of Russia and the Ukraine. Or, those who have a great deal of knowledge about the fine arts, cuisines or an expert judge in matters of taste.
