Princess to resume Egypt port calls


Princess Cruises has reinstated calls to Egyptian ports on all itineraries.

Egypt calls were suspended in February due to political unrest. The line had modified itineraries for 18 sailings scheduled to call in Egypt through November.

Cruises aboard Star Princess, Dawn Princess, Ocean Princess and Pacific Princess have now returned to their originally published itineraries.

Princess’ first Egypt call since the suspension is scheduled for May 15.

"The situation in Egypt has calmed considerably since widespread protests earlier this year, and the tourist areas aren’t currently being affected," said Jan Swartz, Princess' executive vice president.

The Egyptian ports of Alexandria and Port Said are part of the two-day Egypt experience included in the line’s 12-day Holy Land sailings, which depart from May 7 through Nov. 15.
