Norwegian Cruise Line has cancelled the 5 July sailing on its ship Norwegian Sun, which struck a small iceberg last month.

This is the third cruise cancellation after the ship hit a growler near Hubbard Glacier, Alaska, in thick fog on 25 June.

Guests have been told the 5 July sailing, which had been due to depart Seattle for nine nights, has been cancelled as a precautionary measure.

NCL Senior Vice President of Guest Services Katty Byrd said: “During the afternoon of 25 June 2022, Norwegian Sun made contact with ice while transiting to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska.

“All guests and crew are safe and the ship was deemed safe to return to Seattle for further assessment and repairs.

“However, as a precautionary measure, Norwegian Sun’s 5 July 2022 sailing has been cancelled. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.”
