Carnival Corporation removes Russia from cruise itineraries

Carnival Corporation’s range of cruise lines have or will skip Russian ports going forward, in light of Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

Some of Carnival’s cruise lines that had previously featured ports in Russia include Princess Cruises, Holland American Line, Seabourn and AIDA Cruises.

Carnival Corporation’s range of cruise lines will replace Russia’s St. Petersburg port with alternative destinations

Princess Cruises will replace St. Petersburg on 24 cruises with Stockholm, Sweden (overnight call); Visby, Sweden, and Gdansk (Gdynia), Poland.

Holland America Line is altering six itineraries that were originally scheduled to call at Russian ports, to now call at Baltic ports such as Riga, Latvia; Klaipeda, Lithuania; Visby, Sweden; and Stockholm, Sweden. One cruise that was scheduled to visit Vladivostok, Russia, will instead visit Busan, South Korea.

Seabourn is also modifying six itineraries on Seabourn Ovation, with details to come soon.

AIDA Cruises will adjust the itineraries of four ships sailing in summer 2022 to stop at Riga, Latvia; Copenhagen, Denmark; Oslo, Norway; or Visby, Sweden instead.

Carnival Cruise Line and P&O Cruises UK are also adjusting their Baltic sailings.

In a statement issued by Carnival Corporation, a Costa Cruises spokesperson said the company was “following with great concern what is happening in the heart of Europe, and we hope that the pressure of the international community will soon restore peace”.

Costa has taken actions to reassure and assist Ukrainian crew members and guests who are aboard, and will continue to monitor the situation and “amend itineraries as necessary following guidance from authorities”.
