MIAMI (AP) - The Norwegian Gateway cruise shop and its nearly 4,000 passengers are headed to St. Maarten after a brief delay in Miami.
The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1Mkj17o ) reports that a stalled sailboat started a chain of events that prevented the ship from leaving port late Saturday.
The cruise line said the ship had to maneuver around a sailboat and the ship’s starboard side pod and propeller might have made contacted with the channel bed.
The ship returned to port and was allowed depart about five hours later after inspections to make sure the ship was safe.
