All you need is a spare £36,000 for this once-in-a-lifetime shore excursion and you'll be transported to the Sormovo Air Base to undergo a physical exam and flight instruction, before the captivating flight over the Russian countryside at speeds of up to 1,536 mph - that's twice the speed of sound.

While the luxury experience for cruise guests might break the bank, the 12-night all-inclusive summertime sailing itself costs a mere £4,065.
