History of cruises: Behind the Iron Curtain, USSR. Berlin - Admiral Nakhimov

We continue the story about the history of cruises in the USSR. As we've already found out in the previous parts, the Iron Curtain was not an obstacle to cruises, and cruises in the USSR existed.

We'd like to begin this story about the history of cruise ships with a beautiful liner SS Berlin III.
