Cruise Ship Docks Safely After Crack in Hull

Friday, May 09, 2008

A Greek cruise ship carrying more than 1,200 passengers and crew docked safely at the Aegean island of Milos after discovering a large crack in its hull, Reuters reported.  The crack, which is above sea level was discovered after the Aquamarine cruise ship left the island of Crete for a tour of the Aegean with 872 Greek and foreign passengers and 407 crew, it said.
The Aquamarine, owned by the Louis Group LCL.CY, had left the Cretan port of Herakleion at 0800 GMT and shortly afterwards the crew heard a loud noise and discovered a 1 metre-by 30 cm hole on the side of the vessel, about 2.5 metres above the water level.
  The official said all passengers were safe.
