It’s been wonderful, I’ve had a great time!” he told 7 News when asked about the ordeal after the ship had docked on Sunday.

Expected to respond with something a little more negative, Mr Lahue excitedly told of how much he enjoyed being on board.

“It’s just super, I love it!”

A cruise veteran from Texas, Mr Lahue said it was still one of the best he’d be on and that he had already rebooked another trip."

"The Norwegian Star is expected to be towed to Melbourne tomorrow after the ship lost engine power at Cape Liptrap, near Wilsons Promontory.

The ship — which can carry 2348 people — was travelling from Melbourne to Dunedin when the ship’s propulsion system stopped working.
Passengers are reporting cruise ship crew and staff being “abused” by angry travellers.
BNCraceteam tweeted: “feel for the Crew onboard #NorwegianStar who continue to get abused by guests, fix the damn ship! horrendous return to Aus”.

Sad that the crew/staff are reportedly suffering some abuse. Short sightedness and tempers shouldn't blend. NCL is surely doing all that they can, and I believe that a few sour people are garnering the attention of the 'Herald Sun'' reporter.
My hat is off to the crew of  the Norwegian Star'.

"The ship's captain announced the death to passengers in a sombre message through the ship's intercom.

"I repeat my earlier announcement for those of you who didn't hear my announcement, as I know quite a few of you were ashore as we had a tragic incident occur this afternoon at approximately 17:10."

"One of my crew members was filling a nitrogen gas bottle ... and unfortunately one of the cylinders exploded, tragically killing the crew member.

"As the protocol requires, we are remaining alongside until an investigation is carried out."

Local Maritime Union worker Phil Adams says the explosion was massive.

"It was a hell of a bang," Mr Adams said."
