To avoid political unrest in¬†Istanbul¬†Turkey, the Summer 2013 voyage itinerary has been revised to include calls on¬†Iraklion, Crete and¬†Kusadasi, Turkey. The ship will sail as¬†scheduled¬†to Antalaya, Turkey and¬†Piraeus (Athens), Greece. ¬†See the full itinerary¬†here.
The Institute for Shipboard Education is carefully monitoring the situation in Istanbul, Turkey.
At this time, there is no change to our visit to either Antalya (July 3-5) or Istanbul (July 8-11). We will continue to assess the situation and will communicate directly to participants if there are any changes or updates.¬†The safety and health of our participants is always our primary concern.
