Gianni Onorato President of Costa Cruises has said the recent events of the Arab Spring have affected nearly half of the company's routes, Gulf News has reported. Costa Cruises was forced to revise nearly 300 out of 650 routes, he said. "We had to look for new ports and had to inform guests they were not going there anymore. It was a big impact financially. We hope 2012 will be better than 2011," said Onorato.
