Tauck removes St Petersburg from Baltic itinerary

St Petersburg has been removed by Tauck from a 2022 Baltic Sea itinerary in the wake of the Russian war in Ukraine.

The US operator had three sailings scheduled on the Ponant ship Le Champlain.

The 12-day itinerary between May and July is being adjusted but alternative ports have not yet been announced.

The removal of St Petersburg from the itinerary follows multiple cruise lines dropping the Russian city from Baltic Sea calls this summer due to the Ukraine conflict.

A message on the company’s website said: “Tauck still plans to operate our 2022 ‘St Petersburg and the Baltic Sea’ cruises.

“However, due to the current Russia-Ukraine crisis, we will be replacing our visit to St Petersburg with different Baltic Sea ports of call.

“All departures of our ‘Russian Glories, Baltic Treasures’ tour have been cancelled.

“Please do not contact Tauck for updates, we are in the process of contacting all booked guests and we will provide a revised itinerary for our Baltic Sea cruise on or before March 31, 2022.”
