Unrest in Ukraine causes Silversea Cruises to modify itineraries

See also

Silversea Cruises announce today that due to the unsettled situation in Ukraine it has modified the itineraries for four Black Sea voyages originally scheduled to call in Yalta, Sevastopol, or Odessa this year.

Silver Spirit's July 21 seven-day sailing will remain entirely a Black Sea itinerary with Trabzon replacing Odessa, while three new nine-day voyages will focus on destinations in Greece and Turkey, and also retain the original Black Sea ports of Constanza and Nessebur.

The mostly-inclusive (all drinks and gratuities) luxury cruise operator also announced enhancements to new nine-day voyages on Silver Cloud's October 13, 2014 sailing and Silver Spirit's voyages of August 20 2014 and September 29, 2014. During the voyage from Constanza, passengers may enjoy a complimentary full-day Silversea Experience in Bucharest, renowned as the "Paris of the East" for its tree-lined avenues, elegant architecture, and vibrant atmosphere. Highlights include a scenic drive through Romania's countryside, a delicious Romanian-style lunch, and an enriching exploration of the capital city's Palace of Parliament, Patriarchal Hill, open-air Village Museum, and Revolution Square. Alternatively, guests may opt for a $200 per guest onboard credit.

Here are the details of the modified itineraries:

VOYAGE 5422: Silver Spirit, July 21 - 28, Istanbul to Istanbul, with calls in Sochi, Trabzon, Sinop, Constanza, and Nessebur. Silver Privilege fares start at $3,550.

"The safety and well-being of our guests is always our top priority.
