Cruise Ship Freed After Running Aground in the Dominican Republic

Norwegian Cruise Line had one of their cruise ships run aground yesterday evening off the coast of the Dominican Republic.

Norwegian Escape ran aground near the coast of Puerto Plata while the ship was leaving port. While the ship was stuck on the sandbar, everyone on board including crew members and passengers are reported to be fine. High winds when the cruise ship was leaving port is suspected in causing the ship to veer off course.

Tug boats were sent to help the ship. A passenger who is on Norwegian Escape told Cruise Fever that the ship had been freed from the sandbar and is now docking back at Puerto Plata for an underwater inspection.

Norwegian Escape is currently on a seven night cruise to the Caribbean from Port Canaveral with port stops in Puerto Plata, St. Thomas, Tortola, and the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay. Puerto Plata was the first stop of the cruise.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
