The line will suspend calls by MSC Magnifica to Istanbul and Izmir, replacing them with Athens and Mykonos from March 26th until the end of the Mediterranean cruise season in October.

Following the bomb blast in Istanbul’s Sultanahmet on January 11, killing 10 German tourists, Crystal Cruises announced on January 15 that the company will reroute two of its upcoming voyages set to call in Turkish ports.

MSC Cruises becomes the latest cruise line that announced pulling calls to Turkey amid growing concerns by guests as a result of the recent tragic event in Istanbul.
