Several cruise lines are changing their intended sailings in light of the conflict in Ukraine.
Norwegian Cruise Line changed its itineraries that had stops in St. Petersburg, Russia, CNN reported. Those stops have been canceled.
“The safety and security of our guests, crew and communities we visit is our top priority. We are currently working to confirm replacement ports and will advise all impacted guests and travel advisors as soon as possible,” the company said in a statement, CNN reported.
No ships were scheduled to be in the region until late May and passengers affected by the change will be alerted.

Atlas Ocean Voyages will stop in Finland and Estonia, instead of St. Petersburg.
