Reports have come in that the HAL cruise ship Westerdam has substained damage to her hull after striking a large piece of ice in Alaska's Yakutat Bay, south of Kluane National Park.

The hull was not breached and the accident happened while maneuvering in high winds.

The damage is about 15 feet below the waterline !

The ship was met by a Coast Guard official at Sitka and launched an investigation which is ongoing.
