Norwegian Cruise Line reports that Norwegian Star has arrived in Melbourne under tow and is safely alongside.
The ship never lost electrical power, and all hotel services continue to operate normally.
An assessment team is checking the propulsion system, and the line says they should have a repair time line and expected departure time available within 24-48 hours.
Passengers are invited to remain aboard, or they may disembark and return to Sydney. Passengers were already given full refunds, onboard credits, and future cruise credits.
