I was a party leader on that cruise, the party being from Benfield School, Newcastle upon Tyne. Rough seas delayed the ship's arrival at Haifa, which meant that the Bethlehem/Jerusalem trip couldn't take place that day. P & O, though, authorised an extra day in Israel and faster steaming to other ports to make up for it. A sad consequence of the delay, though, was the death of an elderly cabin passenger. She had had a serious heart attack and the two doctors did their best, but, if she had been transferred to hospital, she might have survived.
Serena, the port we couldn't visit was Beirut, in Lebanon, because of the civil war there. We went to Crete instead.
