Norwegian Cruise Line ship hits iceberg on its way to Alaska glacier

The Norwegian SunA Norwegian Cruise Line ship hit a small iceberg over the weekend, the cruise line said Monday.

A spokesperson the cruise told USA TODAY in an email that on Saturday “while transiting to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, Norwegian Sun was engulfed by dense fog, limiting visibility and resulting in the ship making contact with a growler.”

A growler is an iceberg that has less than 3.3 feet showing above the water, and that is under 6.6 feet across, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
