BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA (FOX 35 WOFL) – The Norwegian Epic is returning to sea on Monday after crashing into a dock in Puerto Rico, causing damage to the cruise ship.
The gash on the side of the Norwegian Epic can still be seen, but passengers will soon set sail on the ship. Unfortunately, their cruise had been cut short to five days.
Last week, a series of mechanical failures during Epic’s last voyage forced the ship to divert to Puerto Rico. That is where it crashed into two mooring points, causing the gashes on its side.
Norwegian says that the mechanical issues did not cause the crash and there is only superficial damage, which does not affect the safe operation of the ship.
