Seabourn cancels calls to Egypt for October

Seabourn cancels calls to Egypt for October

Luxury cruise line Seabourn has altered the itineraries of three scheduled October sailings following unrest in Egypt.

A travel advisory on the line's website said it was closely monitoring the situation and had taken the decision to replace calls to Egypt on several upcoming sailings.

Seabourn Legend will no longer call at the Egyptian port of Alexandria during a 15-day sailing from Civitavecchia (Rome) to Piraeus (Athens), which is departing on October 5.

The 18-day sailing on Seabourn Legend from Piraeus to Dubai, departing on October 20, will no longer call at the ports of Hurghada, Sharm el-Sheikh and Safaga.

Seabourn Odyssey, which is also embarking on an 18-day sailing from Piraeus to Dubai on October 12, will no longer stop at Hurghada and Safaga.

Travel agents and clients are being notified by the cruise line.

The line said: "As a result of the US Department of State Travel Warning to defer all non-essential travel to Egypt due to continuing uncertainties regarding the restructuring of government institutions, Seabourn has replaced calls in Egypt on several upcoming sailings.

"We will continue to monitor all ports for future cruise visits and should further adjustments be required, travel agents and guests will be notified. At Seabourn the safety of our guests and crew is our top priority."
