“It is an internal repair. There is an issue with the potable water system, so the drinking water tank needs to be cleaned, and a bulkhead needs repairs. It is all internal repairs, so people won’t see the work being done but may see people moving around Northland Terminal,” explained Prince Rupert Port Authority manager of corporate communications Michael Gurney, who noted the holds of the ship are empty.

“The issue came to light a few days ago. Crew on the vessel notified the ship agent who then contacted the Prince Rupert Port Authority.”

The Amarantha was escorted by tug to Northland Cruise Terminal on Wednesday morning and repairs are expected to take three days to complete.
