Two Cunard ships have been forced to cancel a call in Bermuda on the weekend due to bad weather.
According to a news outlet in Bermuda Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth which are both operated by the UK based Cunard Line have canceled their calls in Bermuda. Bad weather in the Atlantic Ocean has forced the calls to be canceled.
Both Cunard cruise ships were originally scheduled to visit Bermuda on Sunday, January 14 but they will now head straight to their next port of call. This will allow further time to stay away from bad weather during the transatlantic crossing and keep the itineraries on track.
Queen Elizabeth is currently on a 122-night World cruise and will now sail straight to New York in the United States. The vessel is expected to arrive in New York on January 16 as normal. Queen Victoria is sailing a 75-night South America cruise and will head straight to Port Canaveral with an expected arrival on January 17.
This was also going to be the inaugural visit to Bermuda by Queen Elizabeth but now guests will have to miss out. The ship is 92,000 gross tons with a passenger capacity of 2,000. Queen Elizabeth is based out of Southampton, UK and is currently sailing a transatlantic route.
