“NEW YORK, May 4 (Reuters) – A cruise ship returning to New York from the Caribbean with 4,500 passengers on board had to be towed into port on Sunday after getting stuck in the Hudson River, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
The Norwegian Cruise Line ship (pictured below) was moored in the river for about three hours due to problems with its steering and propulsion systems as it moved toward its dock in Manhattan, a Coast Guard spokesman said.
The Coast Guard was able to tug the vessel to port after the tide changed, the spokesman said.
The ship, called the Norwegian Breakaway, docked at about 10 a.m. EST after completing a seven-day tour of the Bahamas and Florida, the cruise line said.”
