A cruise ship's mooring lines broke during strong winds in Dockyard in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The P&O cruise ship Arcadia broke free at about 2.53am.

According to a caption on a video posted by the Port Bermuda webcam, “the ship drifted backwards and sideways for a short time before the ship's crew brought manoeuvring power online.”

Port Bermuda webcam is a live video broadcast produced by PTZtv in association with the National Museum of Bermuda and the Royal Naval Dockyard.
