SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A Norwegian cruise ship that departed Boston ran aground Tuesday as it left Bermuda, officials said.

An official with Bermuda's Rescue Coordination Center says the Norwegian Dawn ship hit the reef near Bermuda's North Channel. The official was not authorized to speak to the media.

He said there are 2,675 passengers and 1,062 crew members still aboard the ship. The official said the ship is in a stable position.

Norwegian Cruise Line said in a brief statement that the ship temporarily lost power and its propulsion was affected. Officials said everyone aboard is safe and that the ship has full power. The company did not return a request for additional comment.

The U.S. Coast Guard declined comment and referred calls to authorities in Bermuda.

The Norwegian Dawn offers a seven-day, round-trip cruise to Bermuda, where it spends three days in port.
