The cruise liner “Prince Vladimir”, repeatedly mentioned by Russian propaganda and known for its often breakdowns, was illegally exploited by the aggressor-State on the ‘Sochi-Yalta-Sevastopol’ line in recent years, and now it is again stuck in the Caucasus.

This time the sanitary certificate of an elderly and obsolete vessel was invalid. Last summer “Black Sea Cruises” also did not receive a sanitary certificate on time, which is why “Prince Vladimir” did not conduct the planned navigation at all in 2020. Although the operator managed to gather for the “new cruise” from September 5 to 11, 2021 just over 400 passengers (less than half of the liner’s seats), this cruise has now been canceled. The company offered passengers to postpone cruise reservations to 2022 or refund their money.
