Norwegian Dawn Runs Aground on Bermuda Reef

 A cruise ship owned by Norwegian Cruise Line, Norwegian Dawn, ran aground on Tuesday following its departure from Bermuda.

“On Tuesday, May 19th at approximately 5:00 pm ET, Norwegian Dawn had a temporary malfunction of its steering system, causing the ship to sail slightly off course as the ship was departing Bermuda, resulting in the vessel making contact with the sea bed. All guests and crew are safe and there were absolutely no injuries,“according to a statement by the cruise line.

As informed, the ship’s officers, engineers and an independent dive team have confirmed the structural integrity of the ship.

The ship was refloated with high-tide on Tuesday  evening and moved to a nearby anchorage position where it will remain overnight, NCL said.

“The ship will be thoroughly inspected in Bermuda by DNVGL, the ship’s classification society, before returning to Boston. The ship is fully operational with the full complement of onboard services available to guests,” the company added.

The ship is sailing on a seven-night Boston to Bermuda cruise with 2,443 passengers and 1,059 crew.
