Norovirus-hit Riviera skips Bermuda stop

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The cruise ship Riviera was forced to cancel its stop in Bermuda this weekend after an outbreak of norovirus on board the vessel.

The liner and its 1,000 passengers were due to come alongside in Dockyard this morning for a one-night stop.

However, the ship’s crew contacted Bermuda Radio through its agent yesterday evening to say they would be bypassing the Island.

The ship, which originated in Funchal, Madeira, was due to head to the Bahamas after stopping in Bermuda.

The Riviera was last in Bermuda at the beginning of April, when it was berthed in the West End for one night.
