The weekend’s wet and windy weather delayed the arrival of the fuel tanker, Mount Kibo this week.

Twenty-knot winds off the North Shore forced the vessel to remain at sea in Murray’s Anchorage until late on Monday.

But she eventually came alongside at the Oil Docks at around 2pm to deliver fuel for Esso before leaving on Tuesday.

Penultimate

This week also marks the penultimate cruise visit of the year.

The Riviera and her 1,000 passengers will arrive in Dockyard on Thursday morning from the Azores.

The ship will remain in port until Friday afternoon when she will sail off towards Miami.

Finally the Bermuda Islander is back in Hamilton tomorrow morning, while the Oleander is now on her winter schedule arriving on Monday morning instead of Sunday afternoon.
