Tendering problems on HAL Amsterdam

Recommended Posts

Just read this from a Cruise News Daily e-mail:


Passengers on the last sailing of Holland America's

Amsterdam got more shore time in the seldom-visited port

of the Falkland Islands than they bargained for. About

noon, the harbor master closed the harbor due to

unexpected high winds, halting Amsterdam's tendering

operations. The problem was that almost a thousand

passengers were still ashore. The winds didn't subside

until the next morning. Most places, this wouldn't have

been a major problem, but in Stanley, there are only 28

hotel rooms. Cruise News Daily detailed the heroic

efforts the local port agent performed to make sure all

Amsterdam's passengers had a place to sleep that night.


Anyone had a similar experience???

This was thoroughly discussed in the last couple of weeks. If you want to scroll down a page or two the thread should be easily located. :)
