On May 19, 2015, the 2002-built NORWEGIAN DAWN ran aground off Bermuda shortly after leaving port with 2,000 passengers and 1,059 crew.

The cruise ship was towed free after about six hours and moved to a pier at Bermuda’s Royal Naval Dockyard for a detailed inspection to determine her seaworthiness.  Norwegian Cruise Line blamed the mishap on a “temporary malfunction of steering system.”

No one onboard was injured in the grounding, NCL said.
