USD 105.00

    What to Expect
    Book your selected cruise, and begin your experience with pickup from your St. Petersburg hotel. Then, board your boat and sail along the city's main river waters, including the imperious Neva River, passing many of the most beautiful and famous landmarks along the way.

    After your cruise, return ashore and enjoy a drop-off on foot either at your hotel or a central location.

    Daytime Riverboat Cruise:

    Choose from the regular departure times, and after your hotel transfer, settle aboard and take in the views along the ‘Golden Ring;’ the classic river and canal route around St. Petersburg.

    Sail on the River Neva for stunning views of the Peter and Paul Fortress and Spit of Vasilyevsky Island, and drift along the River Moika and canals by St. Nicholas Cathedral, the Mariinsky Theatre, Moika River Embankment, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the General Staff Building, and more.

    Drawbridges Night Cruise:

    Enjoy a midnight cruise around St. Petersburg’s waterways just as many of its floodlit drawbridges are raised. See all seven major bridges, watching as some, like the Palace Bridge and Troitsky Bridge, raise their wings to let riverboats pass. Absorb the vibrant atmosphere as boats and riverside crowds gather for the spectacle, and cruise along canals and the Neva River to admire St. Petersburg’s illuminated palaces and monuments.

    Evening Jazz Cruise:

    Take a walking tour around the historic heart of St. Petersburg as a prelude to your cruise along the beautiful Neva River, accompanied by dinner and live jazz music. Step aboard a paddle-steamer-style riverboat, and admire lit-up landmarks including the Hermitage, Peter and Paul Fortress, and Vasilyevsky Island, from the sightseeing deck and panoramic windows. As you cruise, savor a delicious gourmet dinner in the elegant dining room.
