Tropical Storm Harvey Retreats from Bermuda
(11:55 a.m.) -- After brushing the region overnight with rain and winds, Tropical Storm Harvey is headed away from Bermuda. The hurricane watch has been downgraded to a tropical storm warning. At 8 a.m. A.S.T. Tropical Storm Harvey was about 55 miles southeast of Bermuda, and winds were in the 60-mile-per-hour range.

According to the National Hurricane Center, a gradual decrease in speed is expected through today so it remains unlikely for the storm to impact weekend departures.

Interestingly, three cruise ships stuck out the storm and remained berthed in Hamilton yesterday, according to the Royal Gazette, Bermuda's daily newspaper. Celebrity's Zenith and Horizon are scheduled to depart at lunchtime today. NCL's Norwegian Crown also stayed in Hamilton yesterday instead of switching to King's Wharf (the captain of the ship is expected to decide today whether or not to move to King's Wharf, according to the Royal Gazette). One ship did change things up to avoid Harvey: Grandeur of the Seas left King's Wharf early yesterday morning as opposed to late afternoon to stay ahead of the storm.

We'll keep you posted as changes occur.
