Quite a busy port, we arrived here on a cruise to the Black Sea and Istanbul, we were only here for a few hours but everybody seemed to enjoy the experience.

Odessa, is a normal city to visit with no so many sightseeing places or touristics places to go, but whats good about odessa is that you can walk across the coast line and watch so many beautiful places to take good pictures, visit odessa shouldnt take more than 3 days

The port itself is ordinary, with no special attractions. Definitely worth to buy a one hour boat trip along the coast. (7-8 $/person)

Our cruise ship was the first in since the troubles began. We berthed very near the Potemkin stairs. There were a lot of locals out to welcome us in. We visited the art gallery in the city. Usually I'm not a great fan of Art galleries but the Museam of Fine Arts is well worth a visit. We also went... More

Took a boat ride around the bay. It was nice, very peaceful. They took us down along the coast to the Dolpinarium and back. If you are looking for some alone time with your spouse or significant other, this is perfect.

It is a huge place where you can see the famous port in its beauty but i don't advise you to go when the temperature is high in the summer, there are not that many places where you can hide from the sun and if you have buy some water before going there. If you have patience you may see... More

While you cannot go walking among containers and railway tracks you can get a nice view of the port area by going down the Potemkin Steps, crossing the road, and going to the cruise passenger terminal. There are a couple of little tourist shops that you will pass along the way if you need some little souvenirs (nesting dolls, T... More

Worth a visit. Go down Potemkin Steps and cross the road. Walk into the Port and have a look. There's an inexpensive souvenir shop upstairs. More interesting to walk out into the port area, towards the hotel, and look around at a huge deep water Soviet era port. A different world.

The Port was without boats, when I visited it. I arrived from Potemkin stairs, but there is one elevator for little money, that goes up and down. The port is large, with great quays, for very big boats for cruises, at the end there is Hotel Odessa, very high.
