Cruise ship names can be full of whimsy and appeal to the impulse to break out from the day to day. Often it matches the experience. Occasionally it becomes a point of irony, like with the Norwegian Escape, which left Orlando on March 12 and ran aground on the seabed at its first stop in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.
The 164,000-ton ship was built in 2015 and can hold more than 4,000 passengers, according to CNN. It was no match for the shallows, however. No one was injured, though the ship sustained minor damage to the hull. And through it all, people onboard with Twitter accounts have been doing what those with Twitter accounts do: tweet through it.
