IRAN, CUBA etc

Now that crusie ships are stopping at Iran, will Cuba be your next favorite port of call?

Since North Korea is no longer part of the axis of evil empire, do you see cruise ships stopping in North Korea too?

How about a stop at Samolia where the prirates stll rule the sea?

Do you feel safe getting off the ship in any of those places?

Somali pirates seized the Faina, a Belize-flagged vessel with a crew of 17 Ukrainians, three Russians and one Latvian, on Sept. 25, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said. It was carrying at least 30 Soviet-designed T-72 battle tanks to Kenya.

Silversea has visited Iran twice (Bandar Abbas) as did Hapag Lloyd's Bremen.
Crystal Serenity will do so on its world cruise in 2010 as will Fred. Olsen's Balmoral.

Both Iran and Iraq are amazing places to visit, as are Israel and Palestine. Love to go and visit but not now, and probably not in my life time as it is NOT safe to travel in Middle East.

Cuban people are extremely friendly with non existence crime rate. The ban to Cuba is for Americans. So, Canadians have been going there for years. All inclusives resorts, just like Mexico and the rest of the Caribbean, good value for money.

Why do you think it's not safe in Israel? I took my kid there, never an unsafe situation except too pushy salespeople in some areas.
