Cruise Ship Itinerary Changes
There are no ships due on Bermuda on Saturday; however, Holland America has already tweaked the itinerary for Veendam (due to Hurricane Earl), which departed from New York on August 29 for a seven-night Bermuda Cruise. On Friday, Veendam departed Hamilton a few hours early; the ship is scheduled to arrive in New York as planned on Sunday, September 5. Passengers embarking on the September 5 sailing will do so as scheduled.
