St. Petersburg cruise port “Marine Façade” changes disembarkation rules in 2019: starting from this year those passengers who booked cruise-organized tours have a priority to disembark. Those passengers who booked tours with our company and other independent tour operators can go ashore in 90 minutes after arrival. For instance, Regal Princess arrives at 6:30 a.m., our tourists are allowed to disembark at 8 a.m. and on.
NOTE exceptions! The 90-minutes’ rule isn’t applicable to:
- Citizens of those countries that have a visa-free agreement with Russia (e.g. Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Israel, etc.)
- Those visitors who obtained regular Russian tourist visas through the Russian Embassy/Consulate
- Those visitors who travel to other Russian cities from St. Petersburg (Moscow, Veliky Novgorod, etc.)
- Wheelchair accessible tours.
