Newcastle's getting an unexpected visit from a cruise ship.

The Radiance of the Seas which was in town yesterday is coming back on Saturday to undergo urgent repairs to its propulsion system.

It'll be in port for about 10 days, with the crew living onboard.

The mechanical problems have forced Royal Carribbean to cancel an 11-night cruise that was due to depart Sydney on Friday.

The ship will be docked at Carrington while undergoing repairs.
