January 24, 2022 | 2 Comments

The Bahamas got a rather unexpected cruise ship visit when a ship that was supposed to dock in Miami diverted  to the Bahamas, after a U.S. judge granted an order to seize the vessel.

The AP News website said, “A cruise ship that was supposed to dock in Miami has instead sailed to the Bahamas, after a U.S. judge granted an order to seize the vessel as part of a lawsuit over $4 million in unpaid fuel.Cruise trackers show Crystal Symphony currently docked in the Bahamian island of Bimini.

“Some passengers were taken by ferry to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday. The ferry ride was apparently “uncomfortable due to inclement weather,” according to a statement from a Crystal Cruises spokesperson. The company said guests were also taken to local airports, but wouldn’t comment on the lawsuit.

“It was not immediately clear how many passengers were aboard, with one news outlet reporting 300 and another, 700. According to the company website, the vessel can carry up to 848 passengers.”
