Norway Resumes Sailing

June 2, 2001

Norwegian Cruise Lines’ Norway, which sat out last week’s Caribbean voyage due to a need for emergency repairs, has been given the okay-to-sail by the U.S. Coast Guard. The ship received the Annual Control Verification Examination Letter from the Coast Guard after it adequately completed repairs of more than 150 safety violations uncovered during a surprise inspection last Sunday. The ship had already embarked more than 2,000 passengers and was ready to pull out of the Port of Miami when the Coast Guard issued a “no sail.”
