Alaska on Saturday. There were no reported injuries and the cruise ship is expected to safely continue to Seattle.“On June 25, 2022, while transiting to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, Norwegian Sun made contact with a growler,” a representative from Norwegian Cruise Lines told Out Traveler in a statement. “The ship sailed to Juneau, Alaska for further assessment, where it was decided that the current voyage would be shortened, and the cruise scheduled to embark on June 30, 2022, will be canceled, so that the necessary repairs can be made.
The ship was given clearance by the United States Coast Guard and other local maritime authorities to return to Seattle at reduced speed.
All guests currently onboard will disembark in Seattle as originally planned. We are communicating with all impacted guests directly.
Additional information will be provided as appropriate.”The Norwegian Sun had reportedly encountered dense fog as it transited through the area just before it struck the iceberg, known as a growler.
