Suez Canal - Egypt


Latest news on the crisis in Egypt is that ships are at present transversing the Suez Canal with no problems.

Due to the night time curfews in Suez and Port Said the usual facilities for cruise ships such as re-fueling and storing are restricted.

It is unlikely passengers will be allowed ashore !

Several cruise ships returning to Europe are due to pass through the Suez Canal during February and March 2013.

Should there be any transit problems which prevent the cruise ships entering the area then it could mean them turning round to go back down the Red Sea and then round Africa to get back to the european ports.

This could add an extra month to the length of their voyages.
