A Norwegian cruise ship that got stuck in the Hudson River over the weekend had to be towed into port after the ship's propulsion system stalled.

The 4,500 passengers aboard the Norwegian Breakaway ship were anxious to get back on dry land after a weeklong trip to the Caribbean, but had to wait out a three-hour delay Sunday when the massive vessel's propellers malfunctioned.

Some passengers onboard reportedly began to panic while waiting to be pulled in to port.

"I have high blood pressure," Long Island resident Eileen Sodano, 59, told the New York Post. "Everyone was trying to cut in line . . . People were screaming and yelling. It was terrible. I started to cry, and now, we missed our limo."

The Norwegian Cruise Line made headlines back in February when a 4-year-old boy drowned in one of the ship's pools. A 6-year-old child was also pulled from the pool and resuscitated.

The Norwegian Cruise Line website describes the 4,000-passenger Norwegian Breakaway as the "newest and largest ship embarking from NYC" to winter destinations including the Southern Caribbean, Bahamas, and Florida.
