Celebrity Solstice Cancels Visit to Bali





7 March 2016

Celebrity Solstice skipped its scheduled stop in Bali yesterday (March 6) because of the “potential for terrorist attacks” in Indonesia.

Ship’s master, Captain Yannis Berdos, shared the security situation had been closely monitored since cruising from Fremantle, Western Australia. In a letter distributed to passengers, Captain Berdos wrote:

“The most recent information in the past few days indicate that the possibility of an incident in Bali has increased. Also, the Balinese New Year is March 9 and recent past advisories have named this date as one that could be targeted by terrorists."
Celebrity Solstice instead docked overnight in Darwin, where the ship was due to arrive on March 10. Passengers who had booked the line's tours in Bali received a refund.

Celebrity Solstice Cancels Visit to Bali

In a statement, Celebrity Cruises said: 

“After discussion with our global security team in Miami, we have decided to cancel Celebrity Solstice's call to Bali on Monday, March 7. This decision was made in an abundance of caution, and we apologize for the impact on our guests' cruise. The safety of our guests and crew is always our foremost concern.

“We will continue to monitor the security situation in Indonesia and will notify guests or their travel agents if there are changes to future sailings that visit Bali.”
The line has been monitoring the situation in Indonesia, including travel advice from the UK and Australian governments. The latest advice from smarttraveller.gov.au - the Australian Government’s website, posted on February 25, 2016 states: 

“Recent indications suggest that terrorists may be in the advanced stages of preparing attacks in Indonesia. The overall level of advice has not changed. We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Indonesia, including Bali.”
Celebrity Solstice is on a 17-night itinerary to Sydney, which departed from Fremantle on March 3. Bali was the only international port included in the semi-circumnavigation Australia voyage.
