I did not expect that river vessels can be so elegant. The question even where to find such a prestigious audience, ready to ride for the money is not around the world, and along the rivers.

We add that the cost of cruises on this ship lasting from 8 to 15 days ranges from $ 3,200 to $ 12,000 per person.
