Two cruise ships return to Seattle


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.
