Celebrity Cruises canceled a stop in Istanbul earlier this week because of concerns with terrorism. We were the first to report on the cancellation involving the Equinox.
Today, Celebrity canceled more port stops, announcing that the Reflection will not stay in Istanbul on August 31st and will depart earlier in the day. Celebrity will also skip the Reflection’s port call in Istanbul on September 4th & 5th and will instead call on Athens.
On August 19th Costa canceled all port stops in Istanbul for the remainder of the year.
Costa and other cruise lines are under pressure not to sail more passengers into danger like Costa recklessly did when it cruised to Tunisia in March, resulting in passengers being slaughtered. I called for the security chiefs to be sacked.
There are hundreds of cruises scheduled for Istanbul this year. Expect more cancelations
