The peak of the popularity of cruise holidays was in the second half of the last century. Then, with the advent of package tours to foreign southern resorts on an all-inclusive system, people forgot about cruises.

And this applies not only to expensive liners off the coast of Europe, but also to the ship "George Zhukov", for example, which makes its voyage along the rivers of our homeland.
