Celebrity Cruises recently cancelled one of its calls to Istanbul a couple of weeks ago, and now the company has taken the decision to cancel all its overnight stays in Istanbul, Turkey for the rest of its 2015 season. The affected after by this change are Celebrity Reflection, Equinox, Constellation.
Eight Celebrity Cruises 2015 itineraries will be affected by this move, although those passengers due to call in at Istanbul will understand that the cruise line does not want to take any risks due to the security concerns in that region.
The company will be making other calls to Turkey, just not in Istanbul overnight. The first of these sailings was affected yesterday, although celebrity cruises.co.uk has the rest of the Celebrity Reflection, Equinox, Constellation itineraries that will miss out Istanbul.
Passengers will find that these cruise ships will now sail from Istanbul on the same day rather than overnight there. This means there will be an extra sea day.
