Cruise ships anchored in Weymouth Bay

The MS Queen Victoria, operated by Cunard, has taken up residence alongside the other cruise ships anchored off shore, creating an interesting view for local residents, according to Alex Cutler, in the Dorset Echo.

Vessels, with no passengers on board, have anchored off the coast during the lockdown.

The Queen Victoria joins its fellow Cunard liner Queen Mary 2, as well as P&O ships Aurora, Azura and Arcadia.

Meanwhile, technical calls are taking place for other cruise ships.

“It must be pointed out that these are not cruise calls, the vessels do not have any passengers on board, and it will be berthing exclusively to take on bunkers, stores, discharge garbage, and transfer crew between the vessels,” a government statement says from HM Government of Gibraltar, responding to Allure of the Seas and Carnival Magic visiting.

“No crew members will be allowed to disembark from the vessel with the exception of those transferring from one vessel to the other, and no attendance on board the vessel from shore-based staff will be permitted during its short stay.”
