Bermuda cruise makes port call in Charleston

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A cruise liner heading to Bermuda is making a stop along the South Carolina coast.

Holland America's Veendam is in Charleston on Tuesday for a port of call visit. About 1,200 tourists can spend a few hours in the city before leaving later in the day.

This is Charleston's first year-round cruising season. Officials expect 67 cruise ships to dock in the city during 2010.
