MSC and Costa Cancel Tunis Calls after 17 Passengers Die in Terrorist Attack

The two cruise lines with passengers in the middle of yesterday’s terrorist attack at the Bardo Museum in Tunis were today finishing accounting for their passengers, helping those needing it, and considering where to go from here.

In the end, 17 passengers died in the attack, and 21 passengers were injured. Both lines - MSC and Costa - have canceled the rest of the year’s calls at Tunis, and other lines have begun to follow suit.

The complete story appeared in the March 19 edition of Cruise News Daily.
