In accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation, foreign tourists travelling on ships may arrive at the port of St. Petersburg without a visa and stay in Russia up to 72 hours, if they have booked a guided shore excursion with a licensed tour operator. Very often cruise lines and their agents warn that you can't disembark in Russia visa-free unless you book one of their ship tours. Please be informed that it's NOT true and that you should not pay any attention to such warnings. This is nothing more than their attempt to sell poorly marketed ship tours that confuse and scare passengers.
