Chekhov 3*


The M/S Chekhov is a great choice for an exciting travel experience on-board a comfortable and well-built Russian river cruise vessel. The Chekhov favorably differs from many other boats because of its higher cabin standards and the innovative design of its public areas. The M/S Chekhov was built in 1978 and has undergone several refurbishments bringing it completely up to date. For many years the ship was traveling along an exotic route on the Yenisei River and now is used on the most popular Russian cruise route between Moscow and St. Petersburg. The M/S Chekhov is well manned with a highly trained crew and support personnel with extensive experience serving tourists from all over the globe. The staff’s attention to detail and the comfort of the passengers 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), a reading lounge and a lecture room. All cabins are facing outside with large picture windows, climate control, private bathrooms and a speaker for announcements. Passengers have a beauty salon, souvenir shop and sauna at their disposal. Laundry and a doctor’s services are also available.
