Windstar Cruises also made adjustments to its itineraries due to the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

The cruise line cancelled all sailings and cruise tours in the Black Sea region.

Windstar said it would change its Baltic itineraries in order to replace calls in Sankt-Petersburg (Russia) on its five Baltic cruises with calls in a non-Russian cruise port.

Passengers and travel advisors will be notified of the changes.

Port of Saint Petersburg (Russia)

'Black Sea Sights & Turkish Delights' was scheduled for 2 dates in 2022 (May & September), with calls at Odessa (Ukraine) and Sochi (Russia) among others. Both will be modified into a round-trip Istanbul (Turkey, Galataport) itinerary featuring Turkey and Greece.
