Norwegian Breakaway is expected to arrive to Bermuda at noon Wednesday.
(3:06 p.m. EDT) -- Norwegian Cruise Line is pulling Norwegian Dawn out of Bermuda 2.5 hours earlier than scheduled in order to get ahead of Tropical Storm Gabrielle.
The Norwegian ship is the first to be affected by the storm, which is bearing down on Bermuda with wind speeds of up to 50 m.p.h. Norwegian Breakaway is scheduled to arrive at King's Wharf tomorrow for a two-night stay.
"We are carefully monitoring the path of Tropical Storm Gabrielle," Norwegian spokeswoman Vanessa Lane told Cruise Critic. "At this time, we have not made any changes to Norwegian Breakaway's arrival to Bermuda tomorrow."
No other ships are scheduled to be in Bermuda until Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas arrives Sunday.
