Celebrity Cruises said that overnight port stays in Istanbul have been canceled as a result of the security climate in Turkey.  

“We will continue to closely monitor the situation in Turkey and have been contacting guests and their travel agents [to make] modifications to their upcoming itineraries,” a Celebrity statement said.

Cruises on the Celebrity Equinox, Reflection and Constellation in September and October are so far affected.

Last month, Costa Cruises said it would stop calling at Istanbul for the balance of the year, following an attack on the U.S. Embassy there in early August.
