Two passengers have been taken to hospital in Spain after being injured when the Fred Olsen cruise ship Balmoral was hit by 50 ft waves in the Bay of Biscay, according to a BBC report.
The ship docked in La Coruna on Saturday after two days of rough seas and winds of up to 60 mph.
A Fred Olsen spokesperson today confirmed the incident, and said the ship’s itinerary had been amended because of the delays.
Calls at Tangier and Lisbon have been abandoned, and the ship, which is due back in Dover on January 27, will instead head from Bilbao to La Rochelle, L’Orient and Cherbourg.
I hope the weather improves.
