Hurricane Sandy forces Cruise Ships to Change Course

Cruise ships trying to Dodge Hurricane Sandy . Holland America’s ms Eurodam made an unexpected stopover in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday to weather out Hurricane Sandy, which continues to create havoc in the Midatlantic and North esat Areas of the United States.

This unpresentedstorm has not been seen in the lifetime of most americans.

The ship was on a 13-night repositioning cruise from Quebec City to Fort Lauderdale that departed on October 14. The 2,104-guest Eurodam will continue her trek down to Fort Lauderdale on Saturday afternoon.

Since Jacksonville only has one cruise terminal and that was occupied by Carnival Fascination, the ms Eurodam had to dock at the cargo area of the Blount Island Marine Terminal.
