According to the Kruzenshtern's official website, her "round-the-world sailings, regular ocean voyages, and educational sailing races carry out a high mission, representing Russia and Kaliningrad to the entire world."

At nearly 115 metres in length, the Kruzenshtern is one of the world's largest sailing vessels still active. On Thanksgiving weekend, the great barque was in port in Quebec City.
