Magic just left on its first Med cruise. Right on the Spanish/French border.

With the civil unrest in Turkey, what are the odds that DCL will reroute? When we did the Med in 2011 they switched us away from Tunis for less...there's active rioting in several Turkish cities now.

Not being reported much in the US media but widely in the European news: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22732139 as one example.

Actually, it has been extensively reported on CNN.

Right now the chances are zero as the riotting is in Instabul, not Ephasus. That isn't to say it could not spread but as of right now not where we are headed.

Good for CNN! I get my news online rather than TV and my news page had links to global media rather than US.

Several stories report riots in many cities, so bears watching IMHO.

I have been following all of this in the news as well, and it has crossed my mind, "what if the rioting gets close to Ephesus/surrounding areas, will we re-route to a different port?" But, I agree with JimmyJackJunior that as of right now, the chances are zero that we'd re-route because all the rioting is so far away from Ephesus, as of now.

But, I do have full confidence that Disney would keep everyone safe, and if there was any shadow of a doubt that Ephesus (and surround areas) are not safe, they would re-route. But, I sure hope not!! I'm looking SO forward to Ephesus.

I have a friend in Turkey right now - she was in Ephesus today and said everything was fine . . . fingers crossed that the problem stays out of the Kusadasi/Ephesus area.

Ok. I'm questioning my decisions again. Who is taking a private tour in Kusadasi and who is taking a Disney sponsored excursion?

Private tour(melitour) At this point no reason to consider a change.

We have a private tour booked. Much better deal than one with Disney. My mom suggested going with Disney. Just looking for guidance on what to do. Thank you for your replies.

We are also doing a private tour with MeliTour, and we also at this point have no reason to consider a change.

Also, if things suddenly do get bad, and Disney makes the choice to pull out, MeliTour will give a 100% refund on any money we've already paid them if our ship ends up not coming into port.

Hopefully it'll all be just fine when we are scheduled to be there.

Just confirm with them that if the ship doesn't dock, you don't get charged and you are reimbursed any deposit money. It will probably be fine.
