NCLH-Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings cancels voyages to Russian and Ukrainian ports

   February 26, 2022 ,   Accidents

NCLH-Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, which operates the brands NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, announced that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine had forced it to alter itineraries and cancel sailings to ports in both countries.

The U.S. cruise company is looking for alternative ports around the Baltic region for the scheduled summer sailings. Nearly 5% of its total capacity, or ~50 sailings, anchor at the Russian port of Saint Petersburg over the summer.

A company spokesperson said in a statement they were currently working to confirm replacement ports and would advise all impacted passengers and travel advisors as soon as possible.

According to Chief Executive Officer Frank Del Rio, it was disappointing because St. Petersburg was one of the crown jewels of the Scandinavia itineraries. He added that certainly, there were alternatives.
