No Turkey visits for Royal Caribbean cruise ships this year

Royal Caribbean has cancelled all stops in Turkey for the 2017 cruise season. In a statement to travel agents the company said that, because of the current unpredictability of Turkey, it had decided to replace its calls in Ephesus (Kusadasi) with alternate ports-of-call for the 2017 Europe season. “We truly regret having to take this action and thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Any decision we make is made in an abundance of caution and safety, as your clients experience in our ports of call is always our utmost priority”, Royal Caribbean said. Brilliance of the Seas will now call at Mykonos, Greece. Jewel of the Seas will now call at Rhodes, Greece. Rhapsody of the Seas will now call at Kotor, Montenegro, Chania, Greece, or Mykonos, Greece
