Cruise Operator Diverts Ships From Tunisia After Museum Massacre - Until now, the country was considered one of the safer North African destinations for tourists seeking affordable beach vacations.

From The Wall Street Journal:

LONDON—Global cruise operator Costa Crociere SpA said Thursday it is diverting ships away from Tunisia, after at least 12 cruise passengers traveling on two ships were among those killed Wednesday in a gun attack in the capital Tunis.

The operator’s ship Costa Fascinosa, as well as the MSC Splendida, carrying a combined 6,875 passengers, were anchored at Tunis’s La Goulette port at the time of the attack which left a total of 21 dead, including 18 foreign tourists.

Three passengers traveling aboard the Costa Fascinosa were killed, eight were injured and another two were missing, said the ship’s operator, a unit of Miami-based Carnival Corp.

Until now, the country was considered one of the safer North African destinations for tourists seeking affordable beach vacations.
