Any celebration can become a perfect reason for the unique on-water event: wedding, anniversary, professional holiday, birthday, prom or just a general desire to spend some quality time together with your friends, family members and colleagues. Organizing a corporate event, holding company presentation or even a seminar on board the ship is a great opportunity to combine business with pleasure.

Celebrations outdoors, in the open, in the picturesque corners of ancient rivers and canals of St. Petersburg is what makes any event memorable. It is a perfect way to rest from the high temps of modern life in metropolis. Welcome aboard!

We really enjoyed this 50 minute Neva River and canal cruise which showed us a different perspective of the city. The bridges are gorgeous and reminded me of Paris.
