Passengers onboard a P&O Cruises ship were forced to stay an extra night at sea because of rough conditions caused by Tropical Cyclone Oma.
P&O said the vessel would call in Noumea today, February 22.
Other cruise ships were impacted as the tropical cyclone bears down on Australia's east coast.
The next scheduled cruise of Pacific Dawn, a 3-day itinerary from Brisbane, was canceled.
Pacific Explorer's journey from Sydney to NSW Sapphire Coast is due to change its route to avoid Oma's effects.
P&O also said that Arcadia would extend her stay in Sydney until Sunday, February 24, and was expected to be in the port of Brisbane on Tuesday, February 26.
The company said that Oma had “significantly affected” Brisbane's port operations.
