A journalist of The Yug Times weekly has gone on a sea cruise and assessed the prospects of this new for Kuban holidaymaking activity.
The regular maritime cruise traffic Sochi — Novorossiysk — Yalta — Sevastopol — Sochi opened on June 11, 2017.
“When developing the concept of maritime traffic between Sochi and Crimea, we considered a variant of high-speed voyages,” said Yevgeni Berkov, Director General of the Black Sea Cruises Ltd. “But such journey would be too tiresome for the passengers, while cruises may let them freely travel from one port to another and introduce them to the interesting places of each city. A cruise lasts for a week, which is a period of time quite comfy for all holidaymakers.”
The Prince Vladimir liner sets out on cruises every Sunday. The ship mainly moves at nights, while in daytime the tourists are offered various excursions that can be bought on board, or see the sights by themselves.
The Prince Vladimir is a comfortable floating hotel. The minimum price of a tour is 26,000 rubles, with excursions at the seaports paid for additionally.
The last cruise of the 2017 navigation will begin on October 8. Next year, the route will not change.
