We will be going on the Star Princess to the Med in early Oct. One port stop is Athens. WHen there is something like the raging fire in the area and all over Greece, will the cruise line most likely go to other ports? It is tragic and I am sure there will be much loss and damage which is horrible. With hurricanes, fires, other problems that arise from time to time, do cruise ships take into account the safety of the passengers before going ahead and stopping at those ports?

cruisefanatic,

welcome to Cruise-Chat.com.

Yes, the safety and security of their passengers have the cruise lines' highest priority and alternative routings will be used if necessary. Actually, this week Costa Crociere (a Princess sister company) will be replacing two port calls in Greece because of the current fires. Be assured that your ship is not going to stop at a port not considered safe for whatever reason.
