Four cruise ship calls to Bermuda were cancelled as a result of Hurricane Lee, as the island braces for storms during the peak hurricane season.
When contacted by Bermuda Real, WEDCO CEO Andrew Dias, on the heels of Hurricane Lee said
A spokesperson said, “The process for hauling boats actually started with the last storm, many owners of those hauled opted to leave them up until the Hurricane season has concluded.
”There are also a number of additional boats who have requested to haul due to Hurricane Lee. The established Hurricane procedures are in place and working well.”
When asked for the general status on the overall cruise season so far, he said
”The cruise season thus far has been good and was extremely welcomed as Dockyard and its businesses did struggle during the Pandemic.
”We did have a few early season cancellations and it appears we will have cancellations due to an active Hurricane season and from the on-going forecasts it is not over with other systems developing off the African coast.
”As standard practice the Dockyard community will work together to ensure we are ready to service our clientele as soon as the weather enables us too.”
And now that we are about to face the next storm again, he said
”As always a big thanks to all the staff, businesses and all the service providers.”
