Tropical Depression Fiona Spares Bermuda
(12:15 a.m. EDT) -- As Hurricane Earl continues to hurtle towards the East Coast, Fiona -- now reduced to a tropical depression -- is set to pass near Bermuda overnight.

According to the National Hurricane Center's 11 p.m. update, Fiona is located about 60 miles south-southwest of Bermuda, and maximum sustained winds are at 30 miles per hour. Fiona is currently moving in a northerly direction at 14 m.p.h.

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.

NCL's Norwegian Dawn departed from King's Wharf Friday as scheduled.

Weather Outlook: Next Affected Ships & Ports

Bermuda's tropical storm warning is no longer in effect, and the NHC has issued its last public advisory. This will be our last report on Fiona as it relates to cruise travel.
