I'm chiming in, only to say WE have questions about Tunis also.
We chose to go with a NCL excursion, in April 2014.

Soon, we hope to be seeing reviews from recent NCL pax that have just finished their Western Mediterranean Cruises.


And with the Tunisian government/politics in flux, I'm sure NCL will watching closely.

I was in Tunisia for two weeks in late October/early November. It is perfectly safe unless there were to be some additional inflammatory event which no one can predict.

Two of us, both women, walked around Tunis near our hotel, which was very centrally located and near the medina. It was very safe (though you don't see many women eating at any of the many streetside restaurants...)

As for the port (also visited Tunis on two cruises, in 2012 and 2011), there is not much to do near it, but you can take the local train to a stop near Carthage (Byrsa Hill) and see it on your own if you want. Alternatively, there are taxis lined up and a board that gives set rates for various tours ranging from a couple of hours to a day.

We did an excursion in November 2013. There is not a lot to see and do in the Port area. I did a fair amount of research and was not confident that we could train it on our own, with our kids, into the city.

We did a tour with a man named Noureddine. There were 52 on our bus and we arranged it all together through Cruise Critic roll call. I think we paid 14EU pp. We spent the day touring the Carthage ruins, visiting the Souk, lunch in La Goulette and then a short visit out to Sidi Said. It was the perfect amount of time in each place becaue we had the two teen girls with us. If it were me on my own, I would have loved more time in the Souk area but that's just me.

I understand what you are saying.
However, there is a difference between safe and mistreated.
In the medina (shopping area), I have found that it is "rude" to show an interest in an item, and then not buy it.
In this culture, once you pick something up and ask the price, the vendor assumes it's sold; just a matter of negotiating (the price).
If you try to leave, chances are, he will try to pull you back in for the sale.
If you leave empty handed, he is considered a disgraced and failed salesman.
So it's your fault if he starts swearing at you and tries to make you feel bad.(?)

Melissa,
Thanks for your reply.
I think we will just stick with the ship's excursion to the Bardo Museum.

Default tunis

We are in Tunis next month with MSC. The ship only docks for 5 hours, so I'm not sure if that indicates how MSC feels about the port of call. No excursions on the website so we'll have to wait and see if anything is offered onboard.

We have done Tunis before, in 2008, so well before any unrest. The port area is very industrial although I believe there's a new "Disney" style Tunisian experience in the port which includes shops, spa facilities and even the opportunity is ride a camel along the dock side.

We did a ship excursion with Costa in 2008 to the old Tunisian burial ground and then onto Carthage. The Roman ruins are spectacular, but I'm a Roman Empire geek. IMO it's well worth a visit. Then onto a souk, were I have to say, I had an unpleasant experience with a stall holder. As $hip$hape (great screen name) said, just be aware of the cutuaral differences around shopping and you'll be fine. I behaved differently in Egypt (at the pyramids)

I love this picture.
And everything was fine.

I'll report back on next months visit.

I am not sure I get what you are saying. Did you have a bad experience? Norms are different in different countries. In most places where true souks/bazaars still exist, the norm is that you do not get down to serious bargaining for an item unless you intend to purchase it. However, I've never encountered a situation where casually looking at an item requires you to buy it -- and I have visited souks in several places in Tunisia, as well as Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.

Yes, we have had more than one "experience".
It's good to know that you have never encountered a situation.

Look but don't touch.
It is safe, but some traders will hassle you just because you have touched an item.
Some will try to put a "free gift" in your hand... don't fall for it.
Also, if you try anything on, they assume you will buy it.
My experience has been, this is the norm.

It can get on your nerves to be grabbed and talked to all the time, not being able to look
at the things. You have to know what you want, to not being talked into buying crap.

Or when lost, ask and being pointed in the wrong direction.

It is not all relaxing shopping.... but still a must.

Hi all,

My husband and I will be on a cruise that will stop in Tunisia on April 26th for the day. After much much searching on CC, I found this tour guide who received great reviews from the few people who had posted.

I can't say yet how the tour will be obviously, but I can report that Ben is very responsive and for the tour he is proposing, very reasonable in cost. He answered my email within 24 hours. I have posted his response to me which gives information about the tour. I put it on my roll call and we have 5 people who are going with us that day. I hope this helps some of you. This will be our first time in Northern Africa and I didn't want to miss this experience!

Here's an article (below) about the Tunis Medina's souks.
http://www.tunisia-live.net/2014/03/...s-storefronts/

"What was once the economic and social hub of Tunis before French colonization is now
a picturesque market of window shoppers, who may not always be willing to spend.
Storekeepers blame both a dwindling numbers of tourists and a lack of interest in traditional products for feeble earnings."
Of course, nothing is said about their (lack of) sales techniques.

Israeli tourists on cruise prevented from disembarking in Tunis
By JTA
10/03/2014
Passengers were told quietly by staff aboard Norwegian ship that they were not welcome per the Tunisian government during the stop.

Israeli tourists traveling on a Norwegian cruise ship were prevented from disembarking at a stop at the Port of Tunis.

The Israeli passengers were told quietly by staff aboard the Norwegian Jade that they were not welcome per the Tunisian government during the stop, B’nai Brith Canada said in a statement Sunday. The organization had been contacted by a Jewish Canadian passenger on the ship.

There were about 20 Israelis on board the ship, according to Haaretz. They did not know in advance that they would be required to remain on the ship during the day-long stop.

Jewish passengers who were not Israeli were permitted to disembark in Tunis.

“The cruise line had a responsibility to its passengers and advise them of this discriminatory policy in advance. Better still the cruise line should avoid ports that have such policies,” B’nai Brith Canada’s CEO, Frank Dimant said in a statement.

"Yaacov Zacharia of Tel Aviv, one of the Israelis on board, said he was “extremely offended” when he was told just hours before planning to disembark in Tunis that he was barred from doing so.
“It was one of the most unpleasant experiences I’ve had,” he told Haaretz by telephone from Palermo, Italy - the next stop on the cruise. He and his wife, Rachel, had decided to go on the cruise with the full understanding that the stop in Tunis was part of the package. “It was one of the reasons we chose it - the experience of visiting Tunisia. We’ve visited many of the European ports of call before.”

Did he have the required entry visa?

It certainly seems like they did, both from the passengers' reactions, and from the fact that NCL has offered them compensation. Please see my response on this relevant thread on the NCL board:

Default Kudos to NCL

Just posted by NCL on their FB page:

"Norwegian Cruise Line
21 minutes ago ·
The government of Tunisia refused to allow Israeli nationals the right to disembark Norwegian Jade in the Port of La Goulette, Tunis on Sunday, March 9, 2014. In response to this discriminatory act, Norwegian Cruise Line announced today that it has cancelled all remaining calls to Tunisia and will not return.

“We want to send a strong message to Tunisia and ports around the world that we will not tolerate such random acts of discrimination against our guests,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s CEO. “We are outraged by this act and the fact that we were not notified in advance of this practice. We apologize sincerely to our guests who were affected and want them to know that we have taken the appropriate action in response.”

Norwegian Cruise Line employs more than 90 different nationalities and welcomes people of all nationalities aboard its vessels. The Company does not condone or tolerate discrimination of any type and with these cancellations hopes to send a message to those who do that such acts are completely unacceptable."

Along with Yaacav, it was one of the reasons WE chose this cruise.

I hope NCL's decision makes you happy.

It appears that prearranged visas are a new requirement, as far as NCL and the passengers are concerned.
