Port Short in Odessa

Our port short reporter Martin Gerretsen in Odessa.


With tensions running high between Western nations and Russia over the situation in Crimea, some cruise lines have already announced changes to their current Black Sea itineraries with most of the Crimea ports being removed. Martin’s Black Sea cruise last year went to some of these ports, such as Yalta and Sevastopol, as well as Odessa in the Ukraine. We are featuring this beautiful and historic port as some cruise lines are keeping this city on their itineraries for now.

Visits to other Black Sea cities such as Constanta in Romania, and Nessebur and Varna in Bulgaria, are so far being retained or added to the cruise lines itineraries.
