Guests onboard Carnival Pride have been left disappointed after a third port of call was cancelled in a row due to poor weather.

Greenland Scenery

The cruise to Greenland had already lost both ports of call in Greenland, when it was due to visit St. Anthony in Newfoundland.

However, while the ship was able to anchor off the coast as planned, tender boats could not be used due to the poor weather conditions, including high winds, rough seas and heavy fog.

This means that the 14-night cruise began with 9 consecutive days at sea, with the trip to Corner Brook on Wednesday, 5th June the next scheduled port of call.

We anchored in St. Anthony, but as you could see, extremely dense fog and large waves made it unsafe to operate water shuttles to take you ashore. Because your safety always comes first, we had to abort today’s visit...

We know you were looking forward to seeing St. Anthony and are sorry for this change of plans. We are now proceeding to Corner Brook for Wednesday’s visit.

Letter delivered to guest cabins

At the time of writing, Carnival hasn’t issued any statements on whether it will offer a gesture of goodwill to guests.

Any excursions that had been booked through the cruise line will automatically be refunded and usually, that’s all that will happen.

Guests are therefore advised to take out travel insurance that includes missed port coverage, in the event of missing ports.

But three ports being cancelled in a row, leaving a long stretch of sea days, could be extreme enough that the cruise line decides to offer an extra apology gift to guests.
