It was a busy holiday weekend for Norwegian Cruise Lines which will no doubt have NCL crew members filling out paperwork for days.
It began on Saturday (May 25, 2008) when Norwegian Majesty, on its way from Charleston (SC) to Bermuda, rescued four men from a disabled fishing boat during a storm. Sunday morning, Norwegian Spirit, while returning from a Caribbean cruise, came into contact with the pier in New York, causing relatively minor damage to the ship's bow and a pillar that supported the upper deck of a parking garage on the pier. Then Sunday evening, Norwegian Dawn, as it was leaving New York for Bermuda, called for Coast Guard assistance with a medivac for a woman who was experiencing chest pains.
