Today's forecast for high winds came true shortly after 0900 when a short burst probably exceeded the predicted maximum of 40 kph by about double. That would certainly have made maintaining the ship's position at pier 22 very difficult if not impossible. The ship is due in New York (Cape Liberty, Bayonne, New Jersey) October 25, so will very likely head there directly.
The ship's fall schedule was disrupted by weather last week when it arrived in Portland a day early and remained over night. As far as I am aware it was able to call in Boston, Bar Harbor, Saint John and Sydney as planned.
