APT (Australian Pacific Touring) – Russia
Exclusive to APT in 2011, the ms Amakatarina is the most modern, comfortable and spacious river ship in Russia. Thanks to a $14 million reconstruction and renovation in 2010, it easily exceeds the expectations of the modern traveller. Today, this luxury ship offers the highest level of accommodation and finest public areas imaginable.
Unparalleled Accommodation Options
The ms Amakatarina features ten accommodation categories that suit all tastes and budgets. Offering more personal space than other river ships in Russia, all suites and staterooms feature a spacious wardrobe, a satellite television, a safe, personal climate control and a bathroom with a separate shower area - unusual in Russian ships. Most feature Outside Balconies and, thanks to the ship's refurbishment in 2010, the furnishings and appointments are comfortable, stylish and modern.
Enjoy a First-class Taste of Russia

APT EXCLUSIVE! Signature Experiences
Absorb the history and power as you walk across Red Square in Moscow. See the domes of St Basil's Cathedral in person and venture behind the walls of the Kremlin, former home to Russia's Czars and today the official residence of the Russian president. In St Petersburg, a tour of The State Hermitage Museum in the Winter Palace is an experience like no other. Each room has been designed exquisitely and, with over three million items on show, it's easy to become lost in a different era. Examine collections of art that present the development of world culture and art from the Stone Age to the 20th century.
On Kizhi Island, you'll be awed by the ability of man as you stroll the open-air museum of wooden architecture. See a range of structures that represent ancient Russian architecture, highlighted by the three-tiered Transfiguration Church, a fairytale structure built in 1714 without a single nail.
Cruising the Volga River offers the chance to discover the rural Russian way of life. And there's no better way to do so than on a visit to a local family in Uglich for a cooked breakfast.
