We are cruising along the coast of Sudan, headed toward Somalia. Tonight we enter the “HRA” or High-Risk Area which means that we will be cruising with curtains drawn and lights out. During the day the Promenade Deck will be closed since it is considered dangerous to be visible to passing ships. Piracy is a problem in the area so we are definitely taking security measures seriously.
I am completely caught up on my reports! Links for Petra and Luxor are below. We will have a couple of port stops in Oman, and then will be saying goodbye to most of our friends we have met and saying hello to some new ones!
