It’s been a busy couple of days for Bermuda’s branch pilots with four arrivals yesterday and a couple more departures today.

The town of St George welcomed its first cruise visitor yesterday morning when the Silver Spirit arrived at Penno’s Wharf.

At around the same time, the liner Regatta, and her 700 passengers, arrived in Hamilton from the Bahamas.

Meanwhile, a little later on the same day, the Celebrity Eclipse rolled into Dockyard completing the ‘Full Monty’ of cruise ships in all of Bermuda’s ports.

Finally, the cement carrier Diego also arrived yesterday and came alongside at the Commercial berth in Dockyard where she will remain until Thursday when she departs.

The Silver Spirit and the Celebrity Eclipse will both leave today, while the  Regatta will set sail from Hamilton tomorrow, bound for Norfolk.

The arrival of this week’s car carrier, Southern Highway, has been put back a week due to industrial action in Port of Spain.

Today sees the arrival of the Somers Isles from Florida, which will be followed into Hamilton on Friday by the Bermuda Islander — a day behind schedule.

The Explorer of the Seas is back in Dockyard again on Saturday for her fourth visit of the seas.

And the Oleander will make up the week’s schedule when she arrives in Hamilton on Sunday.
