Silversea is the latest cruise line to remove Crimea and Ukraine cities Yalta, Sevastopol and Odessa from its Black Sea itineraries as a result of uncertainty since political disruptions earlier this year.

Silversea Australasia general manager and director of sales and marketing Karen Christensen said guests’ wellbeing is a priority and new itineraries eliminate uncertainty surrounding Ukraine.

Four Silversea itineraries have been affected by the change, they include:

– VOYAGE 5422: Silver Spirit, July 21 – 28, Istanbul to Istanbul, with calls in Sochi, Trabzon, Sinop, Constanza, and Nessebur. Silver Privilege fares start at AU$4,050pp.

– VOYAGE 5426: Silver Spirit, August 20 – 29, Istanbul to Istanbul, with calls in Kavala, Thessaloniki, Volos (gateway to the famous rock towers and monasteries of Meteora), Athens (Piraeus), Izmir, Constanza, and Nessebur, plus passage through the historic Dardanelles and Bosphorus. Added perk: choice of complimentary Silversea Experience in Bucharest or USD$200 per guest onboard credit. Silver Privilege fares start at AU$6,150pp.

– VOYAGE 5431: Silver Spirit, September 29 – October 8, Istanbul to Istanbul, with calls in Myrina (Limnos), Thessaloniki, Skiathos, Athens (Piraeus), Izmir, Constanza, and Nessebur, plus passage through the historic Dardanelles and Bosphorus. Added perk: choice of complimentary Silversea Experience in Bucharest or USD$200 per guest onboard credit. Silver Privilege fares start at AU$6,450pp.

– VOYAGE 1431: Silver Cloud, October 13 – 22, Istanbul to Istanbul, with calls in Kavala, Thessaloniki, Volos (gateway to the famous rock towers and monasteries of Meteora), Athens (Piraeus), Izmir, Constanza, and Nessebur, plus passage through the historic Dardanelles and Bosphorus. Added perk: choice of complimentary Silversea Experience in Bucharest or USD$200 per guest onboard credit. Silver Privilege fares start at AU$5,150pp.

Earlier this year, the Australian government issued a warning for travellers to avoid Crimea and Ukraine.

Cruise lines have since substituted the two destinations in Black Sea itineraries with alternative locations in Europe.
