Norwegian Cruise Lines' Norwegian Gem During Favorable Weather Conditions

2/25/2019 - Today Norwegian Cruise Lines' Norwegian Gem was denied entry into the port of New York and New Jersey today due to extremely high winds. Although the day was bright and sunny the wind gusts were up to 60 miles per hour.

The Norwegian Gem sailed under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge (Verrazano-Narrows Bridge) but was denied further entry into the port by the harbor master. The excessive winds, combined with the challenging currents made maneuvering the 93,530 ton ship up the Hudson River and making the right hand turn into the pier practically impossible.

The Norwegian Gem then turned around off the shore of Staten Island and sailed out of the harbor extending passengers vacation another day. Unfortunately the Norwegian Gem encountered rough seas since the excessive winds were also occurring at sea.

Weather permitting the Norwegian Gem is now expected to arrive in Manhattan around 3:00 AM on Tuesday 2/26/2019. Her next cruise, an 11 day Southern Caribbean cruise, has been shortened by 1 day and will now depart around 4 PM on Tuesday afternoon.
