MSC drops Tunisia due to state of emergency

MSC drops Tunisia due to state of emergency
MSC Cruises is suspending La Goulette calls for the 2015/16 winter season in response to Tunisia's state of emergency declaration on July 3, eight days after a gunman killed 38 foreign tourists at a beach resort.

MSC Preziosa’s winter schedule will be modified from Nov. 15 to April 23 by replacing La Goulette with Valletta, Malta.

Also impacted are MSC Magnifica and MSC Poesia 'grand voyages' from Venice to Santos in Brazil and Buenos Aires in Argentina, respectively, in November and December. Both ships will spend a full day in Alicante, Spain, instead of La Goulette.
