Two Cruise Ships Cancel Visits to Charlottetown

   October 3, 2019 ,   Accidents

Three cruise ships were scheduled to dock in Charlottetown (Prince Edward Island, Canada) on Wednesday, October 2, but two of them canceled their calls due to weather (forecasted strong winds). Those were the 1400-passenger ms Zaandam (HAL) and the 2300-passenger Norwegian Dawn (NCL).

The cruise liners were supposed to anchor in the Charlottetown Harbor but felt the conditions would not be safe, according to Corryn Clemence, cruise development, communications and brand manager for Port Charlottetown. Environment Canada had announced that wind gusts on Prince Edward Island were expected to reach 50 kph Wednesday afternoon prior to calming down in the evening.

Clemence said it was a disappointing day for them The restaurants and the local shops in town would feel that impact. There would also be fewer tours going out around Charlottetown due to the cancellations. However, the port successfully handled Celebrity Summit (Celebrity) visiting Prince Edward Island with around 2200 passengers.
