In October-November ’05, Americans arriving on ships were being denied entry into Libya and Libyan waters. Despite proper visa applications, the ships Sea Cloud, Le Levant, Le Ponant and Marco Polo were told not to enter Libyan waters since the majority of passengers were Americans. The Minerva, with mainly European passengers, was allowed to dock, but the 48 Americans were not permitted to disembark.

It is Nov. 6 and I am in Crete. Now, instead of visiting Libya, we will go to Sicily and Tunisia.
