Cruise ship cancels visit
The MSC Divina has cancelled its Bermuda visit today because of bad weather.
The cruise ship was scheduled to arrive at Heritage Wharf in Dockyard this morning and depart this evening.
The Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre duty officer said the ship arrived at the pilot station on schedule at 7am.
He added: “But the captain assessed the weather conditions and with the winds at the time, not less than 35 kts, decided for the safety of the vessel to cancel the call into Bermuda.
“The vessel continued its voyage onwards to the Azores.”
It was to be the ship’s first of two visits this year and Dockyard’s second cruise ship of the season.
The Bermuda Weather Service said strong southwesterly winds are expected to increase to “occasional” gale force by Friday before easing on Saturday.
