In the North Channel, in the Bermuda, drainage was long due to grant ships with a deep draught. It has not been done yet and a cruise ship, the Norwegian Dawn, got stuck in it. On board, there were 2,675 passengers and 1,062 members of the crew. American coast guards underlined that the situation is under control and that no one was hurt.
The Norwegian Dawn announced that the ship has no power to the engine and therefore it has no propulsion. Although many tugboats came to their rescue, the cruise ship is still stuck and the captain said it is not possible to proceed.
The cruise started in Boston for a seven-day holiday; it had to stop in King’s Wharf in the Bermuda. Leaving from here, the ship got stuck in the North Channel.
