No Egypt For Us


Recommended Posts

It appears that Oceania has made the decision to avoid the conflict in Egypt. While I totally agree with them, I must confess that I am disappointed that we won't be able to go there

They not only cancelled the upcoming cruises but for remainder 2013 and 2014 visits to Egypt cancelled according to news on Cruise Critic.

We are currently booked on the Nautica for November 2014 going from Istanbul to Dubai and Oceania has already cancelled the 3 ports in Egypt. Seems many are now cancelling their booking for this cruise because they wanted to visit Egypt. We have been to Cairo/Giza, but want to visit Luxor and one of the reasons we booked this itinerary. I think it is a little too early for them to cancel Egypt for more than a year from now, so will wait a little longer to see if they change their minds and put it back on the itinerary. If it is still cancelled at the time final payment is due, we, too, will unfortunately cancel.:(

We are going to Egypt in February (not on a cruise)

I am in touch with my guide there (I met him on my May Oceania cruise (he was my guide in Luxor) and booked him privately for a 2 week trip -- we are doing it all). The situation has improved greatly (but the press does not like to publicize such good news). Luxor was amazing. I am sorry that you will miss Egypt. I think O should have given it a bit more time but perhaps they have to book ports way in advance.


I bet you can get some great deals on Egypt travel. It is cheap to begin with but even cheaper now that they are reaching out to reinstate their tourism business.
