In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Windstar Cruises has cancelled all sailings and cruise tours in the Black Sea region and will change its Baltic itineraries to replace calls in St. Petersburg, Russia with calls in a non-Russian port. Guests and travel advisors will be notified of the changes.
Windstar’s Black Sea Sights & Turkish Delights sailing was scheduled to take place in May and September 2022, with calls on Odessa, Ukraine and Sochi, and Russia among other Black Sea ports. Both dates will be modified for this year with a new round trip Istanbul itinerary featuring Greece and Turkey—details will be shared as soon as ports are confirmed.
Windstar’s five 2022 Northern Europe sailing dates in the Baltic including St. Petersburg as a port will be adjusted to include time in an alternate, non-Russian port. Windstar has no other port calls or cruises in Russia.
“We are currently working to confirm replacement ports and will remain in close contact with our partners in the region,” said Christopher Prelog, Windstar Cruises president, in a press statement. “We prioritize safety above all and will be monitoring this situation very closely, amending itineraries as necessary.”
