A cruise ship is on the verge of disaster after being hit by a strong wind and heavy rain that has left it unable to dock at a nearby port.
A crew member aboard the Victory Casino Cruises ship, owned by Canadian Cruise Lines, was injured during the storm on Sunday, but was expected to survive.
The ship has been docked at a port in Newfoundland for several days after the storm, and has been forced to dock from a port near Toronto, where the cruise line is based.
The crew of the Victory cruise ship was working on the ship on Sunday when a strong gust of wind blew through the ship, the company said in a statement on Monday.
The wind then moved into the port of St. John’s, and as a result the ship’s crew was unable to get on the deck of the ship and dock.
The storm also damaged the propeller of the vessel, which had been anchored for several months, the statement said.
The Victory cruise line has not yet released the name of the crew member who was injured, but it said he will be OK.
