With forecasters keeping a close watch on this active 2017 Hurricane Season, cruise lines scheduled to arrive in Bermuda early this week have cancelled calls to Bermuda due to Hurricanes Marie and Jose.
At last check, Hurricane Marie was projected to reach its closest point of approach to the island, some 430nm west of Bermuda, around midnight on Monday night.
The ‘Anthem of the Seas’, the ‘Aida Luna’ and ‘Insignia’, which was due to make calls alongside in both St George’s and Hamilton, cancelled along with the other two cruise lines due to Hurricane Marie, with ‘Insignia’ affected primarily by Hurricane Jose.
Meanwhile, the ‘Breakaway’ is still scheduled to arrive here from New York around 7am on Wednesday morning. But the other cruise ship calls due in starting on Monday, cancelled to the active storms affecting weather in the local area.
