Cruise on the ship "Dmitry Furmanov"
From 10 to 13 June 2016, I visited a small four-day cruise on the new boat of the company "Infoflot" - the ship "Dmitry Furmanov . " The cruise itinerary: Moscow (SRV) - Uglich - Myshkin - Tver - Moscow (SRV). The weather during the cruise: the first and final day - heat and sun, the second, third days - rain and cold.
A distinctive feature of cruises on the ship "Dmitry Furmanov" - the presence on board of interesting service chips, unusual services - "10 stars Furmanov", which are available to river tourists while traveling by boat.
In the photo: our spaceship before departure from Moscow :) By the way, Sergey also visited me on this cruise aviator_en. Do not forget to visit him in the magazine. Sergei has already begun to talk about this cruise, and how many more interesting things will tell and show!
Fifth berth SRV. On the ladder, we rise and fall immediately to the middle deck of the ship, and the registration desk, where we receive the keys from the cabin, is on the main, i.e. then we must go down. Sailors kindly help to drag suitcases of tourists on all these gangways.
We leave. I do not lose hope that the building of the Northern River Station of Moscow will someday be restored, and, sitting at the restaurant table on the upper terrace of the building, one can admire the ships heading for cruises.
Some tourists do not hold back and start dancing :)
In one of the corridors of the ship, pirates attack me, I get an invitation to an evening entertainment program.
We go on the channel of Moscow. Movement along the canal is organized quite logically: the motor ships go along the so-called sluice threads - coming to the lock, the ship does not wait, but goes right into it. Proshlyuzovavshis, comes out of it and goes to the next lock, which will also be ready to take him to his cell. According to the yams of the lock, the ships usually go in pairs (there may be more if the size of the ships is less). As a result, following these rules - the yams of the lock, the capacity of the Moscow channel increases.
In the photo: the ship "Princess Anastasia" leaves the third gateway of the Moscow channel.
Carefully disagree with the opposite, the benefit of the width of the channel allows you to do this.
Tragic pages of history. In memory of those who gave their lives on the construction of the canal, this cross was established.
And I am again being pursued by pirates. Do not turn away. I'm going to the evening performance.
Solarium on the sun deck. While the show has not started, tourists are gathering here in anticipation.
And admire the evening beauty of the canal.
Concert hall. In the evenings, they always held different performances for the audience. Often the view involved everyone who came here. And on the ship in this room there is a noiseless (viewers put on headphones) 3D cinema and a noiseless disco (also in headphones).
The morning of the second day of the cruise. The weather is noticeably spoiled: it's raining and it's cold. But at such times it makes me feel a thousand times more pleasant that I am in the warmth aboard the ship, and not wet somewhere on the shore :)
Uglichanka, June 2016.
On the territory of the Uglich Kremlin (in the Uglich Kremlin there are no walls, because they were wooden and, when decayed, no one to build them again did not) discovered a relatively new monument to Dmitry Tsarevich killed. Opened on May 28, 2015. The author - sculptor Alexander Rukavishnikov. The image was taken as the basis of the monument, which was created in 1899 in his painting "Tsarevich Dmitry killed" by Mikhail Nesterov.
Upon returning to the ship, a surprise awaited us - a free tasting of pelmeni. Pelmeshki could be supplemented with 50 grams of vodka, but for 50 rubles.
Our table in the restaurant on the middle deck. For Sergei's son put a special highchair. By the way, once included air conditioning in the restaurant - it works palpably, but the air drives somewhere above, in blankets and blankets we did not bundle up.
For children, the ship has its own standard menu, but for a nine-month Slavik cook "Dmitry Furmanov" they prepared a special semolina cereal :)
And this city you will guess right away. Mice are everywhere.
Sometimes they even come to life.
In the spring, icicles can fall, and here whole pieces of stucco molding can fall on the heads of passers-by.
Some part of the stucco has already collapsed.
The streets of Myshkin.
And here I became thoughtful. Somehow the name of the workshop is incorrectly written. Or to attract tourists specifically so written?
Myshkin and motor ships from the bell tower of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin. The climb to the bell tower is conditionally-free. A small donation opens the way up.
We go in the way back, but tomorrow we have Tver. On the left side is a rainbow.
Rain stops periodically, but it's cold!
It is good that there is a coffee shop on the ship where you can sit in the warmth and with a cup of coffee watching the river landscapes :)
Again the Uglich lock, but on the evening of the second day of the cruise.
Day three: Tver, cold, rain. I did not go on a city tour, I stayed on the boat. I saw this Tver in May :)
I'll tell you about the peculiarities of food on the ship "Dmitry Furmanov." Breakfast - buffet. Although the dishes are located in two opposite ends of the restaurant, but the crowd of tourists does not interfere with creating a flea market and confusion. If on the second day, when I arrived on time for breakfast, I was just stunned by the bustle around the dishes, then on subsequent days I would come for breakfast about 30 minutes after the start, putting all the dishes on my plate without much trouble. Lunch and dinner - custom-made system (exception - the first day of the cruise). Here, too, no lifefahk did. For a quick change of dishes enough to tell the waitress that I'm ready to get the next dish - will bring quickly. Otherwise - you will sit and wait for a long time. Strange feature, but it is. Dishes of all days of the cruise will be shown in the next post.
Dish-surprise (in the menu it was indicated, without specifying what it really is) - this was for dinner on the final evening of our cruise.
21:30 - time to remove the aft flag.
Final concert in the concert hall of the solar deck. By the way, there were unusually many children on our cruise. This is very remarkable, because it is they who will continue the glorious traditions of river voyages. After all, without them, without future tourists, the river passenger fleet does not survive.
During each cruise on the ship "Dmitry Furmanov" they play a free ticket to a cruise for two. And at the end of the navigation among those who purchased a ticket to "Furmanov", they will play the whole car! Here's someone lucky! :)
Meanwhile, we pass the second gateway of the Moscow channel. A person without a face in the background of the moon and the evening sky looks especially ominous.
The sculptural group on the opposite head of the second lock is still intact.
The playing field in the solarium "Dmitry Furmanov." Giant chess can be transformed into checkers.
For those who wake up early, there is an interesting service - coffee for early birds. The service is free, you just have to wake up early :)
And I liked the café-confectionery the most. I'll open the secret, I even moved from the boat deck closer to her. Fortunately, that the coffee house also distributes wi-fi :)
Morning gymnastics (fitness fleet) we had in the concert hall, tk. it's raining and cold outside. But some special sports tourists were engaged in gymnastics and in the open air.
On the main deck is the workshop "samodelkino". Designed for those who do not like to look at the surrounding beauty ship, but I do not belong to such.
For fans of reading in the bow bar of the boat deck, an extensive collection of books by classical Russian authors is collected.
And in the middle space of the nose there is another library, which is supplemented with table games.
Aft span of the middle deck. Photo exhibition of young photographers.
On the route Moscow (SRV) - Uglich - Myshkin - Tver - Moscow (SRV), I already went and not once. In this cruise, first of all, I "researched" the novelty of "Infoflot" - the ship "Dmitry Furmanov". What kind of ship is this? He's different! His size and activity, he does not resemble either "Nekrasov", let alone "Chapaev". "Dmitry Furmanov" is suitable for cruises to those tourists who like the design of the ship, who are accustomed to travel on the huge river boats. And considering the standards of Infoflot, this holiday will be as comfortable as on other motor ships of the company.
