Cruise Ship Freed From Sandbar

Thursday, June 08, 2006
According to reports, the cruise ship Norwegian Crown, with 1,104 passengers aboard, ran aground just off Bermuda on June 7, and after remaining stuck on a sandbar through the day, was pulled off by tugs during the evening high tide. The cruise ship's passengers and crew were at no time in any danger, according to Norwegian Cruise Lines, which said the ship tendered passengers ashore to Hamilton for local excursions. The 34,000-ton ship ran aground at about at the top of Dundonald Channel as it sailed from St. George's, Bermuda, to Hamilton in heavy rain. Three tugboats tried to set the Norwegian Crown free, and eventually postponed efforts due to high tide.

After it was pulled free, the ship headed for Dockyard, skipping Hamilton as a port of call. Source: Cruise Ship Report
