Russian Cruise Line Says 2022 Black Sea Schedule Launched


Despite the war in Ukraine, Black Sea Cruises is preparing to sail a full season in the Black Sea in 2022.

“We are pleased to inform you that the company plans to open ticket sales for the Knyaz Vladimir (Prince Vladimir) liner sailing in 2022,” Black Sea Cruises said in a social media post.

The company is part of Rosmorport, which is owned by the Russian state.

The season will run from June to September, the company added, with dates and prices to follow.

With cruises departing from Sochi, the Russian public brand has been offering seasonal programs in the Black Sea region since 2017.

Itineraries usually include visits to ports in Crimea and southern Russia.

In 2021, the regular seven-night Black Sea cruise included visits to Novorossiysk, Yalta and Sevastopol, where the ship offered an overnight stopover.

Backed by Rosmorport, a state-owned company under the Russian Ministry of Transport, Black Sea Cruises operates a single ship, the 800-passenger Knyaz Vladimir.

Aiming to build maritime infrastructure in the Black Sea region, the company acquired the 1971-built vessel from Mano Cruises in early 2017.
