This first-class vessel received a face lift in 2019 with renovated public areas and Brand-new Balcony cabins (Junior Suites and 5 singles) gracing the Upper Deck! In 2020 the renovations will continue with 20 middle deck twin cabins getting a full overhaul including new furniture, bedding, and new tiled bathrooms with showers. But most importantly building on its name, the Moonlight Sonata will offer an artistic flair and excellent on-board ambiance highlighted by an intensive cultural immersion into everything Russian, including lectures, dance lessons and evening shows performed in the ship’s theater! A young and vivacious crew will be complemented by our own superb English-speaking Cruise Directors and English-speaking local guides throughout!
