The projected itinerary adjustments for the Carnival Pride sailings in Northern Europe this summer have been communicated to guests. On two distinct itineraries, the call to Saint Petersburg has been deleted, and alternate ports have been listed.
Changes to the Carnival Pride Itinerary
Carnival Cruise Line has removed Saint Petersburg, Russia from two of its Baltic sailings, as planned. When the Carnival Pride sails Northern Europe from Dover, England this summer, two sailings are disrupted.
The stop to Saint Petersburg on June 23 will no longer be included in the June 19 departure from Dover. The Carnival Pride was supposed to stay the night in the dock before departing the next evening, June 24. The Carnival cruise ship will now stop in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Stockholm, Sweden, instead of the port. All of the remaining ports will operate as previously planned.

For the August 21 12-day departure from Dover, Saint Petersburg has also been withdrawn. The ship was supposed to dock on August 27, which was also an overnight stop. Instead, the ship will offer the ports of Stockholm, Sweden, and Kiel, Germany as alternatives.

The alterations to the schedule are minor, with just two sailings removing the Russian port of call. “In view of the recent strikes by Russia in Ukraine, Carnival Corporation brands will be adjusting our itineraries in the next week once alternate ports can be determined,” parent company Carnival Corporations stated. “We are in favor of peace.”

Since resuming guest operations from the port in November 2021, the ship is now stationed in Tampa, Florida. Carnival Pride’s season in North Europe will run from June 10 to September 2, 2022, however she will relocate to Europe in April. Carnival Pride will set sail from Barcelona for a series of sailings before heading to Dover for cruises.
There will also be sailings from Civitavecchia, Italy, before repositioning in November 2022 to Tampa, Florida, for the Caribbean winter season.
The Supporting Crew of the Carnival Cruise Line Has Been Affected by the Russia-Ukraine Conflict
Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn, and AIDA Cruises are among the Carnival cruise companies that have eliminated port calls to Russia. Calls to Russia have also been discontinued by major cruise companies such as Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean.
