Cruise ships returned to Weymouth Bay (off Isle of Portland, Dorset England) following the turbulent weather caused by Storm Christoph.

England's Dorset and South West were hit by strong winds and heavy rains on Wednesday and Thursday (January 20-21), and the anchored in the area liners left the Dorset coast. Ahead of the storm, the vessels left the Weymouth Bay anchorage on January 19 to safe waters.

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth and P&O UK's Aurora, Britannia, and Ventura are currently anchored in Weymouth Bay. NCL Norwegian Bliss is moored at Portland Port.

RMS Queen Mary 2 was moored in Weymouth Bay on January 22 but has since left for Torquay (Torbay UK)

Cunard, NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line, and P&O Cruises continue to extend the suspension of sailings due to COVID restrictions.
