The scale of the hull art on today's mega-ships becomes clear when viewing this close-up photo of artist Guy Harvey near his signature on Norwegian Escape.

Norwegian Cruise Line has canceled another sailing on its Norwegian Escape ship after the vessel ran aground in the Dominican Republic last week due to additional time needed for repairs.

“Repairs to Norwegian Escape will take longer than anticipated,” Christine Da Silva, senior vice president of branding and communication for Norwegian, told USA TODAY in a statement Wednesday. 

The ship’s March 26th sailing has been canceled. 

“We’re optimistic the issue will be resolved shortly, and we will resume normal operations on April 2, 2022,” Da Silva said. “We apologize to our guests for the inconvenience this may have caused. We value their patience and understanding.”

The cruise line was not able to offer any additional information on the damage to the ship that needs to be fixed before sailing can resume.
