In the event of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advising against our proposed call to Yemen we intend to extend our stay in Aqaba at the end of the cruise. This would enable passengers to enjoy both Petra and Wadi Rum. Swan’s will advise passengers of any such itinerary change as soon as reasonably possible.
