From MoneyBlog:

Storm wreaks havoc in Middle East

The storm that lashed Brilliance of the Seas triggered sandstorms in Jordan and Egypt and blanketed the streets of Damascus in Syria with snow. Twelve-foot waves closed the port of Alexandria, which forced Brilliance of the Seas to bypass Egypt and proceed to Malta. A Moldovan cargo ship wasn’t so fortunate. It sank off the Israeli coast, but the 11-member crew was rescued.

Mother Nature is reeking havoc all around the globe. While not the same situation at all, I think with Carnival giving full refunds with the Splendor fire, doing less would have been a pr nightmare. I just saw the evening news, and, watched the passengers yelling, NOT FAIR....!!

ABC speculated that if there is a drop off in bookings, beacause of fears,there could be lower fares as a result..ahhh, I don't think so..
