Norwegian Cruise Line has cancelled the remainder of Norwegian Sun’s current voyage after the ship hit an iceberg.

The ship hit a ‘growler’ [small iceberg] while transiting to Hubbard Glacier on Saturday and, instead of calling at its next planned port of Skagway, it sailed onward to Juneau.

The captain has since announced the ship would sail back to Seattle.

He later sent a letter to guests saying: “As you may have heard from my previous announcement, in an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to cancel the remainder of Norwegian Sun’s June 21, 2022 voyage.

“As such we will be setting sail from Juneau… returning directly to Seattle.”

The ship is sailing at reduced speed and is expected to arrive in Seattle on Thursday morning, Cruise Hive reports.
