Title: South Korean port visits cancelled by global cruise giants
Post by: Host Mike on March 09, 2017, 10:28:59 PM
"Global cruise giants Carnival Corp. and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. will cancel South Korean port visits from their China-based cruises after Seoul deployed a U.S.missile defense system, raising tensions between the two countries.

In a post on its Chinese website, Royal Caribbean said it would remove visits to popular South Korea sites due to “recent developments regarding the situation in South Korea.”

Carnival’s Costa Cruises said it was working with tour operator partners to adjust its offering for Chinese clients.

“Costa Cruises will remove calls to South Korean ports for our upcoming cruises home ported out of China, replacing them with cruising at sea or calls to destinations in Japan,” it said in a statement."

I wonder if sending B-52 nuclear bombers there had anything to do with it? ::)
