Seabourn Drops Libya Call

Seabourn Cruise Line announced it has canceled calls in Libya for its Spirit and Legend liners for 2007, after the country's refusal to allow entry to guests holding U.S. passports. The change affects two cruises, the 12-day Spirit, departing from Alexandria, Egypt on May 7 and the 11-day Legend voyage originating from Rome. The Spirit will replace its Tripoli and Derna, Libya calls with stops in Kusadasi, Turkey and Mykonos and Itea in Greece. On the Legend voyage, visits to Naples, Italy; Palermo, Sicily and Valletta, Malta will replace a scheduled two-day call at Tripoli.
