Thank you for your message and excellent planning. Yes, we did not show up. We arrived at 2:30 pm. I had confused September 2 with Day 2 of the cruise--my responsibility entirely. However your contact in Odessa was wonderful and as it turned out, the next day she had a bus picking up 8 other people from another cruise ship. She agreed that we could go on it and we had a wonderful tour with a guide who told us to call her Dona. She is a 73 year old widow and not only did the tour, took all of us to a Kosher restaurant, shared out lunch and then took Morley and myself to a store where I could buy authentic Ukrainian crafts as opposed to Chinese imports and insisted on walking us back to our ship.
So all's well that ends well and I thank you for your assistance.
