The waters of the Israeli port town of Ashdod, where the activists arrested on the now-infamous aid flotilla were detained, are a bit too choppy for Princess Cruises. Today the cruise line canceled a stop there.

A Princess Cruises spokeswoman told USA Today the ship was skipping the port call because of “the ongoing potential for unexpected violent protests” sparked by the flotilla incident.
