Crown Princess Sails Toward New York

The Bermuda-flagged Crown Princess sailed from Port Canaveral late Thursday afternoon, having received clearance from the U.S. Coast Guard, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and British flag authorities. Princess said it was confident there were no mechanical or ongoing operational issues that would compromise the safety of those onboard. However, Coast Guard and NTSB investigators were still onboard when the ship sailed, government officials said. Crown Princess is expected to arrive at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 22. The line expects to begin embarking passengers mid-day for a shortened seven-day sailing, which will depart at 5 p.m. that afternoon. The cruise will call at the ports of Grand Turk and Bermuda before returning to New York on July 29 to resume its regular nine-day cruise schedule.
