P&O Arcadia Breaks Free from Mooring

By ,   December 19, 2018 ,   Accidents

P&OArcadia broke free from her mooring due to strong winds in the Royal Naval Dockyard (King’s Wharf), Bermuda, in the early hours on Monday, December 17. 

Pushed by very strong overnight winds, the hulking ship drifted away from the dock at 2:53 a.m., presumably as many crew and passengers onboard attempted to sleep.

After Arcadia escaped her mooring, she floated sideways for a short time, before her crew jumped into action and brought her under control.

It is still unclear whether the vessel had been damaged, or if anyone onboard had been injured.

The ship is among the cruise ships to dock at the historic Bermuda Royal Naval Dockyard which is the most visited site found on the British island territory.
