WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19: This week marks the Carnival Glory’s inaugural visit to Bermuda.

The cruise ship and her 2,940 passengers are scheduled to arrive in Dockyard at sunrise today.

The 952-foot vessel has 13 decks and is registered in Panama.

She is part of the Carnival Conquest class of ship.

She will be on island for just over a day before she heads back to Norfolk in the US at midday tomorrow.

The Carnival Glory will join the Norwegian Gem up in the West End today.

While this Saturday Hamilton will play host to the Silver Whisper cruise ship.

It is the vessel’s second trip to Bermuda this year. She spent a day in the capital in May.

The Whisper is due to arrive at 1pm from New York and leave the next day at 5pm bound for San Juan in Puerto Rico.

St George’s welcomed two research vessels, Oceanus and Ridley Thomas, last weekend.

These smaller ships have no problem getting through Town Cut and they docked at Penno’s Wharf.

Both the Oceanus and Ridley Thomas headed out to sea again on Monday morning to continue their deep-sea exploration work.

Finally the Bermuda Islander heads in Hamilton tomorrow morning and the Oleander is scheduled to arrive on Sunday evening.
