Covid-19: Bermuda cruise cancelled

A cruise that was due to include a stop in Bermuda later this month has been cancelled, its operators said today.

The Divina was scheduled to arrive at Dockyard on March 26 for a 24-hour visit.

But a spokeswoman for MSC Cruises told The Royal Gazette: “MSC Divina's Grand Voyage from Miami, March 20, to Genoa, April 7, has been cancelled.”

She added: “MSC Cruises has revised its itineraries for its ships that were due to call at Italian ports in connection with the Italian government's decision on March 9 to introduce further strict measures that have impacted the country as the Covid-19 coronavirus public health emergency continues to evolve.

“Some ship itineraries have changed up until April 3, the date set by the Italian government for emergency coronavirus measures, and in some instances beyond this date.”

A Government spokesman tonight said they had not been notified of any cancellations.

the spokesman said: “MCS has not officially released the Bermuda space for March 26/27 at this time.

“The Ministry of Tourism and Transport has not received any cruise ship cancellations affecting April's cruise ship schedule.”
