Holland America alters Prinsendam itinerary

SEATTLE -- Holland America Line altered the itinerary of the Prinsendam, eliminating the ship's calls in India.

The vessel will depart Mombasa, Kenya, on Oct. 13, and cruise to the Seychelles, but instead of heading to Mumbai, the ship will sail directly to the Maldives and Myanmar.

It also will call in La Possession, Reunion, and Port Louis, Mauritius, on its Sept. 25 sailing from Cape Town, South Africa, to Mombasa.

A State Department warning in June urged Americans to defer travel to India.
