Cunard cruise ships Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria have cancelled their visits to Bermuda because of bad weather.

The liners were due to arrive in Dockyard on Sunday, January 14, and signal the start of the island’s cruise season 2018.

However, Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre reported that both ships had cancelled their calls at Bermuda “due to weather encountered on crossing”.

Heavy weather in the Atlantic forced Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria to head straight to their next cruise ports of New York and Port Everglades respectively.

For Bermuda-registered Queen Elizabeth it would have been the inaugural visit. The luxury liner left Southampton on her 122-night world cruise at the weekend and is due to visit 39 ports in 25 countries.
