Cruise companies were forced to cancel all departures due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Passenger-free liners have anchored off England's coast during the lockdown. Queen Victoria joined the fleetmate RMS Queen Mary 2, along with the P&O Cruises UK liners Arcadia, Aurora, Azura and Ventura.

Weymouth Bay is a sheltered waterway on England's south coast, protected from erosion by Portland Island and Chesil Beach.
