New Itinerary (Again)

Friday April 1, 2011 6:55 AM (Mar 31 11:55 PM)

Last evening while having Martinis before dinner, the Captain went on
the PA system and announced that the US State Department had eased
travel restrictions for some of the Egyptian ports along the Red Sea. As
a result, the m/s Amsterdam will make a stop in the port of Safaga
tomorrow before heading up the Gulf of Aqaba to Jordan. This is good
news for us as Egypt was the primary reason for taking this particular
cruise. This will give us an opportunity to visit the city of Luxor and
the Karnak Temple. Also we will be able to go to the Valley of the
Kings. Things are looking good.
