Cruise Hive Weekly News: November 28, 2020

More cruise news from the week and as usual, it's been pretty busy across most major cruise lines.

It’s not every day this happens so we just had to post about it. A Gannet seabird got trapped on a Holland America Line cruise ship for two days!

Local news reports that when the ms Rotterdam called at Dublin in Ireland as part of a 17-night cruise a Gannet was noticed by crew members. The bird got trapped near the bow of the 62,000 gross ton vessel. Crew members were surprised to see the bird there again the next day when ms Rotterdam called at the Isle of Man. The bird was well looked after while stuck at the forward part of the ship.

When the 1,300 passenger ship arrived in Belfast, Northern Ireland the ships crew finally were able to call in reinforcements. The reinforcements were Debbie Nelson from Debbie Doolittle’s Wild Life. She got the call on Thursday morning to come and save the trapped Gannet. Debbie told the Belfast Daily “You get calls for all sorts of strange things,” Debbie explained. (But the gannet on the deck of the cruise ship was) the most unusual one of the year.”

We must say well done to the crew for looking out for the seabird and to Debbie for coming to the rescue. The Gannet wasn’t injured and finally swan away happily ever after.
