Disney Cruise Line removed Greece and Turkey from Magic's Mediterranean 12-night itinerary in summer 2016.

According to a statement by the line, the 'Mediterranean & Greek Isles' itinerary was modified as a result of monitoring conditions in the region.

The original itinerary had to depart on August 1 from Barcelona and call at Olbia, Civitavecchia, Naples, Palermo, Piraeus, Mykonos, Kusadasi, Valletta, Cannes, and Palma.

Disney confirmed that a revised itinerary, already called 'Mediterranean Cruise' replaced the Greek, Turkish & Maltese ports with Livorno and Villefranche.

Customers were informed of the changes and offered $1,000 (per stateroom) onboard credit as compensation. Full refund is available for passengers who want to cancel reservations.

Disney Magic will spend 2016 summer in Europe. In addition to her Mediterranean cruise, the ship will offer the first British Isles voyage on June 5 and will offer 2 sailings to Iceland and the Norwegian fjords in June and July.
