Cruise ship breaks moorings

  • An Arcaria cruise ship, such as the one pictured, broke from its moorings

A cruise ship’s mooring lines broke during strong winds in Dockyard in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The P&O cruise ship Arcadia broke free at about 2.53am.

According to a caption on a video posted by the Port Bermuda webcam, “the ship drifted backwards and sideways for a short time before the ship’s crew brought manoeuvring power online.”
