Numerous media outlets are reporting that not one but two cruise ships that left Seattle earlier today have returned to port. The Norwegian Pearl returned after a passenger fell ill while the Grand Princess experienced engine failure off of Magnolia's West Point and had to be towed back to Pier 91. Here's a pic I took of one of the ships returning as seen from Magnolia.

UPDATE: Both ships have resumed their voyages. The Norwegian Pearl transferred a sick passenger, while the Grand Princess left after a few hours in port to repair the engine and undergo a Coast Guard inspection.
