Default Veendam too big for st. George's bermuda

I saw that on another board also, but let's not jump the gun - let's see what HAL has to say. My TA, who has a group booked for 2011, said that at the moment HAL gave their standard response "we are looking into it".

This is part of the article from the Bermuda Sun

Ship's too big for St. George's
A cruise ship that was supposed to dock at St. George's next year will have to drop anchor out at sea because she is too big to get through Town Cut.

Simulation tests carried out on the MS Veendam, pictured, have revealed she would hit the bottom if she tried to sail through the narrow entrance to St. George's Harbour.

As a result, the liner will now have to drop anchor at Murray's Anchorage near Fort St. Catherine and passengers will be ferried into the town.
