A Holland America Line ship with 1,400+ passengers had to cancel a call at Devon on Friday, August 9, due to the inclement weather. MS Rotterdam was scheduled to call at Port Ilfracombe (North Devon, England) but the predicted storms and high winds meant the 238-meter long liner has had to cancel the visit and sail on by.
