Iskenderun (T) to Port Said (E)
We (a dutch family with 2 kids) were about to book ticket on the Sisa ferry service (Iskenderun (T) -> Port Said (E)). But then the recent riots (26 jan 2013: 22 people killed) started in Port Said. So we wait and keep an eye on the situation.
Is someone of you in Port Said now (or about to leave?) who can give more information / details about the recent situation? You can send me a PM.
Contact information mentioned above is correct. You can also contact their Istanbul head Office. contact information in Istanbul:

-The vessel departs from Iskenderun to Port Said on wednesdays and saturdays, however, there may be some delays due to the weather conditions and vessel-related issues. You should check departing time one day before by contacting our agent in Iskenderun.
- To be present in the port one day before is required for formalities, you dont have to spend the nigth in port.
- 3 meals a day are included. Tea, coffee is served, as well. You may not find snacks, it is better if you bring some with you.
- Your car may have to wait in Egypt one day. Our agent deals with all the issues, you dont need another fixer. [ROBERT: I'll check which agent this is as KADRAR doesn't score high points]
