CRUISE SHIP AGROUNDS OFF ALASKA

Cruise West's Spirit of Glacier Bay is reported to have run aground in Glacier Bay. The US Coastguard is attending the incident. There are no injuries and hull integrity has not been breached, although a boom has been deployed as a precaution. The reason for the grounding is still unknown. Passengers are being transferred to the departure port of Juneau, and the vessel is expected to re-float at high tide.

US-based CruiseCritic blog notes that this is the third time this season that a Cruise West ship has encountered problems in Alaska. In May, Spirit of Columbia experienced generator problems. In early June, Spirit of Alaska touched bottom in Tracy Arm Fjord.
