The program starts in March and will last until the end of January 2025, - said Stanislav Naumov, General Director of the sales agent of the company "IC Aquilon".

The Astoria Grande is designed for more than 1,300 passengers. The ship is equipped with all modern security systems, there are three restaurants, five bars, a concert hall, a swimming pool, as well as a gym, its own spa and beauty salon on board.
