A River Cruise Trip

A River Cruise Trip

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.

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.

  2. 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!

    • 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.
