Carnival Sunrise has been forced to cancel its call in Bermuda due to rough ocean conditions from Hurricane Humberto.

Carnival Sunrise Experiences High Ocean Swells

The Carnival cruise ship, which is based out of the Brooklyn cruise terminal in New York, has been forced to cancel the call in Bermuda on September 20, 2019. Carnival Sunrise is already sailing an altered itinerary due to Hurricane Humberto impacting the island of Bermuda.

The ship did make a call at Charleston, South Carolina, so the hurricane could pass and everyone onboard remained safe. However, when the ship departed and headed back out to sea, the rough ocean conditions caused the ship to rock excessively, even with stabilization procedures in place. Passengers have posted that the vessel experienced ocean swells as high as 18 feet.

It is reported that Bermuda has had a power outage as well, so even if the ship did manage to get there the experience may not be one which guests would enjoy and it is likely that many shore tours would have been canceled or changed. Instead, Carnival Sunrise is turning around and heading back toward her homeport in New York. She is expected to arrive back on schedule on September 22.

Guests were notified of the cancellation onboard and Carnival Cruise Line has apparently offered a 100% future cruise credit, which is not too bad at all!

The ship is sailing a 6-day cruise and was originally scheduled to call at Bermuda on September 18 and stay docked there until September 20. The next voyage is scheduled to depart New York on September 22, which will be a week-long Canada and New England sailing and should not be affected by the storm, which is currently moving to the northeast and further away from land.
