Cruise Ships Increase Speed in Order to Get Ahead of Hurricane.
|Norwegian Escape - Norwegian Cruise Lines Sails for Bermuda|
Today (Sunday) the Norwegian Escape and Celebrity Summit departed New York / Cape Liberty, NJ destined for Bermuda. Although both ships left their pier on time, the ships appeared to be traveling at an unusually faster speed than normal.
While watching the evening news, the weather person mentioned that tropical storm Chris has the potential to become a hurricane within the next day and is located off the coast of North Carolina.
It appears the both ships were speeding up to get ahead of the storm and have the storm pass behind them.
It was an absolutely beautiful day in New York today with a temperature of 90 degrees and low humidity and the weather conditions were ideal for a departure.
