If you want to have an exciting travel experience on board the comfortable and well-tended river vessel, m/s Chekhov is your choice. This ship is one of two, representing the Austrian project of river cruise-liners, designed as an alternative to the German-made vessels of project 301 and 302. It favorably differs from them with a higher cabin standard and innovative design of public areas. M/s Chekhov was built in 1978 and has gone several refurbishments to keep up with standards appropriate for Western travelers. For many years the ship was traveling along the exotic route on Yenisey River in Siberia and starting 2004 it will be used on the most popular Russian cruise line Moscow – St. Petersburg.

M/s Chekhov is manned with highly trained crew and supporting personnel with extensive experience of serving foreign passengers. This ensures a pleasant and memorable stay on board for groups and independent travelers.

The guests of the ship have a use of the following facilities: two bars (one of which has a swimming pool under a sliding glass roof), reading lounge and lecture room. All cabins are outside with large picture windows, climate control, private bathrooms and speaker for announcements. Passengers have a beauty salon, souvenir shop and sauna at their disposal. Laundry and doctor’s services are also available.
