Royal Caribbean cancels stop in Egypt due to protests
Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas will skip a scheduled stop in Alexandria, Egypt on on Tuesday, September 18 due to rising anti-American sentiment and violence in Egypt over the last few days.
Instead, Mariner of the Seas will now call to Sicily (Messina), Italy, on Sunday, September 16, and Valletta, Malta, on Monday, September 17.
The change was made for cautionary reasons after a new film was released in America that is anti-Islam.
Royal Caribbean will continue to monitor the situation in Egypt to determine if more itinerary changes are needed.
