Norwegian to skip Middle East ports on two cruises

By Tom Stieghorst
Norwegian Cruise Line has altered some 2013-14 itineraries, including several in the Mideast.

For sailings between Nov. 6, 2013, and April 2, 2014, Norwegian Jade's 10-day Eastern Mediterranean cruise won't stop in Alexandria, Egypt, but will substitute port calls in Istanbul, Turkey, and Naples, Italy.

The Norwegian Jade's 11-day Eastern Mediterranean & Holy Land cruise from Rome will follow a Western Mediterranean itinerary, skipping stops at Haifa and Ashdod in Israel, and Port Said and Alexandria in Egypt.

Also, from November to April, Canary Island cruises on Norwegian Spirit will stop in Casablanca, Morocco, instead of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, off Africa's west coast.
