I am sailing with the Rotterdam from Southampton on 27 September 2015. The itinerary has been changed, possibly because of the Ebola scare in Africa, so now it restricts itself to the Iberian peninsula and the Mediterranean, as listed below. The cruise can be done in smaller sections. I am doing the Southampton to Barcelona leg, which finishes on October 10.
I would be grateful if the administrator of this site would verify this with HAL and post new port details. Thanks.
