Cruise Lines Amend Egypt/Tunisia Itineraries

The political unrest that has gripped both Tunisia and Egypt in recent weeks has led a number of cruise lines amending their itineraries.

Cruise lines are acting quickly to nullify any under uncertainty that their passengers might have by amending itineraries that previously featured stops at one of the two countries. Voyages of Antiquity, SeaDream Yacht Club and Disney Cruise Line have all removed stops at ports of call in Tunisia from their upcoming voyages, whilst Costa Cruises and NCL are amongst those who are re-directing their ships away from Egypt for the foreseeable future.

The Egyptian economy relies heavily on the vast numbers of tourist that visit the country throughout the year, yet at this point it is unknown when cruise lines will re-introduce the region’s ports of call. Both Royal Caribbean Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises are predicting a June return at the earliest, with current scheduled itineraries being diverted to Greece and Turkey.
