Hurricane Kyle Forces QM2 Delay

Hurricane Kyle skirted the U.S. Atlantic seaboard this weekend, forcing the Queen Mary 2 to delay its departure from New York Harbor, officials said Monday.

The Category 1 storm brought rain and choppy seas to the region, forcing the QM2 to delay its Saturday afternoon departure until 5 p.m. Sunday, said a Cunard Line spokeswoman.

The original itinerary was also adjusted to avoid the storm. A call in Portland, Maine was omitted and tidal restrictions in Saint John, New Brunswick and Boston forced arrival and departure times to be adjusted
