Why? They told my husband it was due to not enough people had signed up and the boat wasn't full. Someone else said it was due to the political unrest and so many people had canceled. I had checked about a week ago out of curiosity on the web site and everything was sold out for the remanider of the year!  Now not only is everything canceled for the remainder of this year but for 2012, as well. I'm very disappointed. Nothing has been posted on GCT about the trips being canceled.

So, are you saying that no Egypt trips will be offered in 2012?

My friend and I had been scheduled to leave on Feb. 5, this year, for that trip, and of course it was cancelled with all of the unrest. We had thought that we would reschedule and try to go in 2012, but we have noticed that no trips have been posted for 2012 and were wondering why. Guess we will "give up" and go somewhere else. Maybe someday GCT will return to Egypt....??

I was told today that OAT will run trips for 2012 but GCT will re-elavuate later for 2012. As of now there will be no trips w/GCT for even 2012. So many people have canceled that even though theyown the ship it is not worth having it 1/4 full. I suggested combining some of the trips and have one run in the winter, the spriing, the summer, and the fall.  That way people who still wanted to go could possibly schedule a trip for their choice time of  year.There were six of us going and I looked into the OAT trip but thought it might be too strenuous for some.

We have asked for a refund :(
