Oceania Cruises cancelled two upcoming calls at ports in Egypt in “an abundance of caution.” The company replaced Marina’s calls into Alexandria on Oct. 3 and Port Said on Oct. 4 with Antalya, Turkey, and an additional day in Ashdod, Israel, respectively.
The move follows a decision by several cruise lines to reschedule upcoming calls at Tunis, Tunisia, due to recent anti-American unrest in the region. The U.S. State Department on Sept. 15 issued a warning against travel to Tunisia and ordered the departure of all non-emergency U.S. government personnel after the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.
