Princess Restores Egyptian Port Calls


Princess Cruises have announced that the previously removed Egyptian port calls will be reinstated on all itineraries. It was in February 2011, due to the political situation in the country that the cruise line made changes to the itineraries for eighteen sailings that would have made calls in Egypt right till November.

Ships such as Pacific Princess, Ocean Princess, Dawn Princess, Star Princess and others have all included Egypt again in the list of ports to be called on the itineraries. The first Egypt call for Princess will be scheduled in May 15 t h.

The situation in Egypt is considerably calmed down compared to the wide spread protests held earlier in the year. The tourist areas, at least are unaffected. This was stated by Jan Swartz, executive vice president of Princess Cruises. He welcomed the passengers to enjoy the country’s wonders.

Port Said and Alexandria are the two Egyptian Ports that will be called at in the 2 day Egypt experience that is part of the twelve day Holy land trips. The ships will depart right from May 7th to 15 Nov, 2011. The passengers that have already booked will be contacted with the information on the revised itineraries.
