The bodies of two of the four missing fishermen of the "Olívia Ribau" have been found by divers inside the wreck on Oct 8. The divers continued looking into the dragnet. The naval forces were trying to remove the vessel out of the navigation channel to Cabedelinho because the bar was blocked. The funeral of the fisherman, found late on Oct 6 took place in the Chapel of St. Peter (Cova) at 5 p.m.
The "Al Oraiq" was seized by the Federal Public Service Mobility in Zeebrugge for the necessary investigations of the collision with the "Flinterstar". The ship was moved to another berth so that no operations of Fluxys LNG terminal were compromised.
Cruse lines with itineraries from Port Canaveral and other East Coast ports whose ships have scheduled stops in the Bahamas have been scrambling to change their itineraries to avoid Hurricane Joaquin.
Among them are five Port Canaveral-based ships — Carnival Cruise Lines' Sensation, Sunshine and Valor, and Disney Cruise Line's Dream and Fantasy.
Generally, the ships are replacing a Bahamas port-of-call with a stop at another port or a day at sea, although the Sunshine is making a more drastic change.
There have been no reports of cruise lines canceling any cruises, according to a database compiled by the widely followed Cruise Critic website.
Cruise Critic reports that ships operated by five cruise lines — Carnival, Crystal, Disney, Norwegian and Princess — have switched up itineraries to avoid Joaquin..
"This does happen every year" during hurricane season, said Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor-in-chief of Cruise Critic. "And it causes anxiety and angst for people" who have scheduled a cruise.
But Brown said those concerns may be overblown.
"The best thing about a cruise during a hurricane event is the ship can move out of the way," Brown said.
The ports of call may change, but rarely is a cruise canceled entirely, she said. www.floridatoday....
