In our effort to continue to keep our customers informed, we need to advise on the situation being caused by hurricane Florence. The storm is intensifying as it moves through the Atlantic towards the US East Coast. It is expected to be a major hurricane and hit North Carolina mid next week. It is imperative that we keep the crew and ship out of harms way as the hurricane moves through our waters. As a result, the Bomar Rebecca will arrive into Halifax on Sept 10 where she will remain and then sail Sept 17. This will impact the arrival at destination to be one week later. Your bookings will be updated in our system to reflect the sail date change. The vessel and voyage # will remain the same (Bomar Rebecca 0121).
For those customers who were booked on the Asian Sun 0026 scheduled to sail Sept 17, your bookings will be updated to sail the same date however, it will now be on the Bomar Rebecca 0121. Please be advised accordingly for paperwork purposes.
As we get more information on the tracking of Florence, we will provide further updates.
