It may be difficult to get an "official" consulate answer for this question, which comes up in every roll call for cruises that stop in Petropavlovsk. The confusion arises because Russia has different requirements for different ports.   U.S. citizens do not need a visa for Petropavlovsk but do need a visa for St. Petersburg. I believe that citizens of other countries have the same arrangements, but I am only guessing about the UK requirements. You might be well served to ask your question specifically for UK citizens who have cruised to this destination. 

As a side note, if a visa were required, it would likely make no difference if you planned to get off the ship or not. In my travels, if a visa is required, Celebrity will not let you board without a visa. 

 

In any event, for concerns about such things as visa/passports, required vaccinations etc. I would not rely on Cruise Critic for the definitive answers. Always do your due diligence and check with relevant consulates.

While in most cases a visa would be needed whether or not you planned to get off, Russia seems to be an exception. If you don't plan to get off, you should be OK>

We did the Millennium transpacific in May. Did not need a visa for Petropavlovsk. Just had to show our passport when we left the dock and when went back to  the tender. Not much there just walked around and went back to the ship.

Second this...No visa needed for either ships tour or just getting off on your own.

Whilst when we stopped in Petropavlosk you certainly didnt need a visa the fun was getting your passport so you could leave the ship and then the russian authorities being certain they have accounted for all the passports.  We were on millenuim and were told passports would be available at 9am but it was after 11 before we got it (and 1/2 the ship were still waiting) and was well after midnight before Russians were satisfied re passports (depite needing to be on board by 5pm).  Interesting place to visit being so isolated.
