The California-based company said a June 1 visit to the Tunisian capital of Tunis scheduled for the 3,080-passenger Emerald Princess will be replaced by a stop in Naples, Italy.
Half a dozen other calls in Tunis scheduled for later in the year also “are being evaluated,” Princess added in a statement sent to USA TODAY. “The safety and security of our guests and crew is our foremost priority.”
Princess is joining six other lines — Holland America, Costa, MSC, Star Clippers, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and Aida Cruises — in canceling upcoming calls in Tunisia.
Some of the lines have canceled all future visits to the country while others only have dropped calls taking place in the next few months.
