Fellow cruise blogger John Honeywell reports that South Africa canceled plans to have 2 cruise ships docked in South Africa for the World Cup. A few weeks ago we reported that the Queen Elizabeth 2 was to be repositioned there possible for housing during the event. The QE2 was not part of the two ship deal, but a separate deal. This nix-ing of the original deal put the QE2’s plans in jeopardy. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
