Russia Cruises

If you're looking for river cruises within Russia, click here.

Cruises to Russia highlight St. Petersburg, and ships often dock overnight in this great imperial city to allow passengers enough time to take in the sights. The Hermitage, located within the Winter Palace, ranks among the world's best museums. The Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood sports an elaborate mosaic facade and onion-shaped domes. Visitors to the highly ornate Catherine Palace, about an hour from St. Petersburg, can tour its magnificent rooms, including the famed Picture Gallery, the Amber Room and the mirrored and gilded Great Hall.

  • Russia is featured on Northern Europe cruises, which sail from late May through August.

  • Passengers who participate in St. Petersburg shore excursions organized by the cruise line do not need a Russian visa. However, passengers who want to sightsee independently in St. Petersburg or explore further on their own after participating in a shore excursion must obtain a Russian visa prior to leaving their home country.

  • On cruises to Russia, you'll experience long hours of daylight.
