The UK Foreign and Commonwealth office modified the advise against all but essential travel to Tunisia.   Despite the change, cruise lines are still being cautious and have modified itineraries.

Joining Costa Cruises and Disney Cruise Line, SeaDream Yacht Cruises has made the following statement:

Due to unrest in Tunisia, SeaDream Yacht Club has revised the itinerary for SeaDream II voyage # 21120 sailing May 18 - 28, 2011 from Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy roundtrip. The port of La Goulette (Tunis), Tunisia has been replaced with Xlendi, Gozo Island, Malta.

SeaDream’s President, Bob Lepisto said “Based upon the tension in Tunisia, we feel the safety and security there remains uncertain. For that reason, we have elected not to call on the port of La Goulette (Tunis), Tunisia. Instead, we’ve chosen to call on the peaceful island of Gozo. It has some of the Mediterranean’s best dive sites and I think our guests will find this port highly enjoyable.” 

SeaDream's yachts drop anchor and stay overnight at destinations including the Eastern Caribbean, The Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Amazon.
