Terror attack in Tunis

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Two cruise ships, one from Costa and the other from MSC were in port when this attack happened at the Bardo Museum in Tunis. I saw pictures of a bus full of bullet holes which was supposedly carrying Costa passengers to this museum. It seems there are 19 murdered and most are cruise ship visitors. My God. So horrible. My prayers are with all of the victims and their families.

These cowards know exactly where to hit: crowds of innocent tourists. This story frightens me.

Here are two statements issued by Costa last night on the situation:

Costa Crociere has released the following statement regarding the situation in Tunisia as the Costa Fascinosa is currently in port there:

"Further to this morning attack in Tunis, Costa Crociere confirms that some of its guests had booked a Shore Excursion in the City. Upon being notified the Ship’s Command have immediately recalled all excursions to return on board. The safety of our Guests and Crew both on board as well as during shore excursions is the top priority for Costa. The company is in close contact with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Local Security Authorities, the Captain of Costa Fascinosa and our local Port Agent for a continuous assessment of the situation on site and its evolution so to collect updated information from the Authorities. 3161 Guests were on board this cruise. The departure of the ship from Tunis which was scheduled for tonight at 7pm has been postponed to tomorrow Thursday 19 march time to be confirmed. Costa HQ management and Costa Care Team are travelling to Tunis to reach the ship tonight in order to liaise with the local Authorities and passengers on board. Extra security measures are taken by local security Authorities around the port to ensure the security of ship, its passengers and the crew."
