PORTLAND, Maine --The Queen Mary 2 is cancelling a visit to Portland that was scheduled for Wednesday because of Hurricane Kyle.
Amy Powers of CruiseMaine, which markets the state's cruise ship ports, said the Queen Mary had to change its itinerary to avoid the storm. Powers said the Royal Princess cancelled a visit to Bar Harbor this week for similar reasons.
Hurricane Kyle blew through the Gulf of Maine during the weekend, drenching the Maine coast with rain and whipping up seas offshore before reaching Nova Scotia.
Five other cruise ships carrying a total of more than 8,000 passengers are still scheduled to visit Portland this week.
