Also a maiden call was organized on the board of the vessel with the participation of Regional Council, Port Authority, Customs and Guard services, with a long hope for stabilization of touristic destination.

 

Passenger’s impressions:

- We were waiting for this visit to Odessa for a long time, as our friends visited your city previous year, so we knew what our route is going to be from the very beginning. Everything is even more beautiful we imagined. We are astonished by the architecture, we couldn’t even think that this city is so European-like. Now, this place will be definitely in our TOP-10 list.

- My father was born in Ukraine, in Kiev. I was in Kyiv and in Odessa in 1978, that is why it was so interesting for me to see the way the city changed during such a long period of time. I was so glad to see the same places, but in absolutely another sight, the city transformed incredibly since USSR. It is so clean, green, and this architecture! Of course I want to  thank your authorities for their efforts to keep buildings in good condition.

- Very European city, we couldn’t believe that we are in Ukraine, we thought it would be absolutely another. It was the first time we have chosen cruise as a type of travelling, and we enjoy our first experience. But the only minus is that we would like to stay here for a longer time. We are in love with your cuisine, and we can not but say how green and clean the city is! And your people are just amazing. Very hospitable and beautiful city, we want to return here!
