Scenic Tours

After canceling its season onboard the Sergey Kuchkin, Scenic invested more than $8 million to completely refurbish the Scenic Tsar, which launches this month on 14-day cruises between St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia. Ports of call include St. Petersburg; Svirstroy, a quaint historic Russian village; Petrozavodsk, where guests enjoy the Karelian Folk Show; one of Russia’s most ancient sites — Kizhi Island; the medieval village of Goritsy with its 600-year-old monastery; Uglich, which dates back to the 10th century; and guests have a wide range of included tours during five days each in Moscow and St. Petersburg, from a private Russian ballet performance to the Moscow Circus.
