Norwegian Cruise Line is dropping more than a dozen Egypt sailings on Norwegian Jade citing unrest in the region, this reported by USA Today.
Norwegian Jade sailings between November 2012 to April 2013 will drop Alexandria, Egypt and now stop in Italy and Crete or Turkey.
In a statement to the paper, Norwegian said, they believe Egypt is still a viable port in the future but for the time being it’s not.
The cancellations come not long after protests and unrest in Egypt, other lines have been monitoring this and have altered sailings as well.
Norwegian Jade sails 10- and 11-night Med sailings in the winter.
