Cruise Liners Scratching Israel off Itineraries

Cruisers Scratch Israel off Itineraries

Following the recent surge of violence in the Gaza Strip, sister companies Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises have decided to steer clear of Israel, Asia Cruise News reports.

 

The decision is also based on the close shave the German AIDAdiva had when caught amidst a rocket attack at the Israeli Port of Ashdod, with shrapnel and debris falling on the cruizer’s deck.

The calls originally scheduled for Israeli ports, have been switched to Turkey and Greece.

“We continue to monitor the situation in Israel and will adjust future itineraries should the need warrant,” the companies were reported saying.

“Our primary concern is to ensure the safety and security of our guests and crew.”
