River Victoria: See imperial Russia on a luxury Uniworld river tour

Have you sailed on River Victoria? We'd love to hear your take and see your photos. The following information was curated by Cruiseable.

Snapshot

Uniworld is known for luxurious river cruises, and the River Victoria is no different. Relaunched in 2011, the 206-passenger boat sails the Volga River between Moscow and St. Petersburg. Along the two-week Imperial Waterways of Russia journey, cruise passengers will visit sites such as Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral and Kizhi Island's UNESCO-designated Transfiguration Church, a wooden structure built entirely without the use of nails. The itinerary is full of rich experiences, as cruise passengers visit world-class cities in Czar-like style.

The fares are all-inclusive and cover food and drink, as well as onboard entertainment and the tours in each town. Because Uniworld does not technically own the River Victoria, her amenities may differ from that of other Uniworld ships. She also has more decks and is larger than most river-cruise ships due to the fact that the Russian waterways don't have any low bridges.
