CELEBRATION CRUISES: Holed after hitting object

Celebration Cruise Line’s Bahamas Celebration, which operates two-night cruises between Florida’s Palm Beach and Freeport in the Bahamas, struck an unidentified object while sailing from the latter port on the evening of 31 October 2014 and returned to harbour with a severe list.

Passengers were mustered, but there were no casualties, and around 960 passengers and crew were repatriated on the following day to Miami aboard Bimini Superfast. They were then bussed back to Palm Springs. Initially, cruises in the first two weeks of November were cancelled, but it seems that the ship will be out of service for rather longer than that.
