6 A River Cruise Trip

A River Cruise Trip

Posted on June 1, 2011 by team

Probably everybody had river trips on a cruiser. But who managed to get in rooms with the phrase written on them : “Staff only!”? Now you have an opportunity to see an engine room, a caboose, a mess-room, a captain’s bridge and of course, to stand at the wheel.

The litter collecting ship MS-1 greets you.

It is equipped with a dipper for gathering floating garbage.

And the vessel also has a crane for lifting non floating litter.

MS-1 was constructed in 1998 and it is owned by GUP “Mosvodostok”.

It is the first one from the set of three similar liners.

Like in every ship the cleanness is in a great esteem, that is why there are washings before a cruise.

Let’s start with the caboose. Every day here bread is baked, meat dumplings are fried and tea is made.

A life belt.

The mess-room. The captain fills in a ship’s register.

A pressure and humidity indicator.

The fleet of the Russian emergency ministry.

The engine room.

The liner is equipped with the 150 horsepower engine, that provides it with the speed of 10 km per hour.

The photossesion of one lieutenant colonel. Apparently he has made something heroic.

The hotel Swissotel and the Music House are seen in the distance.

The captain is doing his work.

The captain’s bridge.

The steering wheel didn’t undergo the modernisation.

Sunday never ends on board of the MS-1.

A pleasant meeting with the promenade motor ship NS-1. The MS-1 refueled its colleague.

An atmosphere of comfort reigns in the deck cabines.


The twin brother MS-3 appeared in the opposite direction.

Coming under the rainbow.

What an idyll!

Sadly, but it is time to step ashore.

    I love that clock and that steering wheel.

    I wonder how many dead bodies they have found?

    A nice trip on a dredger that once was used to clean river beds.
    Nice tought :)
    Is white power the cleanings company name?

    Interesting post. I think working on MS1 would be pretty cool. Wonder what the wages are? Musa, I’ll bet they find quite a few bodies!

    • Babysitter says:

      These ships belong to “Mosvodostok” state company so their average wage should be between $1400–1800 (40000–50000 roubles), probably being at the higher end because their service is unique in the city.
