Tug damages cruise ship’s bow
A tugboat was damaged while berthing a cruise ship at Dockyard last Sunday.
The incident occurred at about 9.30am as the Norwegian Pearl was being manoeuvred into position by the tugboat Faithful.
According to a spokeswoman for Marine and Ports, the tug’s mast made contact with the ship’s bow flare.
Faithful’s mast was almost ripped from its base in the accident.
It is currently undergoing repairs but remains fully operational, according to the spokeswoman.
There were no reports of injuries, and the incident is now under investigation.
