— The Coast Guard says a cruise ship from the Caribbean suffered a steering glitch near its New York City port and had to be tugged to shore.

Spokesman Frank Iannazzo Simmons says the Norwegian Cruise Line vessel was supposed to dock at 7 a.m. Sunday but developed a problem with its steering and propulsion system as it approached a Manhattan pier on the Hudson River.

The ship, called the Breakaway, waited in the river while the captain of the port ordered tugboat assistance to help with the docking.

The Coast Guard says the ship was pulled to Manhattan's Pier 88 just after 10 a.m.

It was not clear how many passengers were aboard.

Norwegian Cruise Line did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the glitch.
