The Norwegian Breakaway has reportedly been delayed while trying to dock in its home port of New York by propulsion problems.

The large cruise ship which is operated by Norwegian Cruise Line had an issue with it;s propulsion steering system before docking at the terminal in New York. The ship arrived into port at 7 a.m. Sunday morning (April 4th 2014) but was met by very strong winds while sailing on the Hudson River.

CBS New York has been the first to report on the situation which has also caused wide-spread delays with passengers waiting for hours to disembark the vessel. According to the site Norwegian Breakaway finally docked at 10 a.m. at pier 88 with help from a tug boat.

NCL have released information on its facebook page:

We will update this post as more details are released.
