WEDNESDAY, OCT. 24: Canadian gravel will arrive in St George’s tomorrow afternoon on board the UBC Maracaibo.

The Dutch flagged bulk carrier originates in Auld’s Cove in Nova Scotia.

And she’ll be in the East End for three days as her cargo is unloaded on to the dock at Penno’s Wharf.

Her arrival is scheduled to take place just an hour after the cruise liner Silver Whisper leaves St George’s.

The ship and her 600 passengers are due to arrive at Penno’s Wharf from New York at around midday today and will set sail for St Barthelemy in the Caribbean tomorrow at 4pm.

The Silver Whisper’s departure signals the last cruise call of 2012 for St George’s.

Meanwhile, the Baltimore Highway car carrier is expected to arrive into Hamilton this morning to deliver 65 new vehicles.

She will only be in town for a matter of hours before she heads out to sea again.

Hamilton is also hosting the luxury cruise ship, The World, this week.

She arrived from Boston yesterday and will be in the capital until Friday when she heads for New York.

Tomorrow sees the arrival of the Aidaluna into Dockyard, and then on Sunday the Enchantment of the Seas will come alongside in the West End for two days.

Finally the Bermuda Islander gets into Hamilton tomorrow, while the Oleander will be in town on Sunday afternoon.
