Norwegian cruise ship hits iceberg - 'scary experience' says passenger
A passenger on board a Norwegian cruise ship that hit an iceberg in the Alaskan fjords on Saturday has described the incident as a 'scary experience'.
Alicia Amador, from Phoenix, Arizona, told the Juneau Empire that she estimated the iceberg, was about the size of 'semi-truck' and described hearing a “big noise” before the impact.
The Norwegian Sun cruise liner was forced to cancel the remainder of its trip following the collision at the weekend.
A spokesperson told the Cruise Hive blog "On June 25, 2022, while transiting to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, Norwegian Sun was engulfed by dense fog, limiting visibility and resulting in the ship making contact with a growler."
