“Easy Port to See”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

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 shirts, etc.). Wrth the visit if you want to see a sea port.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

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 sea is really dark.”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

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.

“Busy port, lots of stairs.”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Depending on how your cruise ship docks, you can see the Potemkin Steps and Richelieu statue from the ship. There is a small mailbox inside the Terminal on the left hand side of the main level. To get across the street, there are several staircases including several underground passageways just to get to the Potemkin steps. We were surprised at the lack of security on the dock level when compared to other ports. Civilians/non passengers were able to walk right alongside the ship. There is a small cafeteria inside the terminal and several souvenir shops.
