Cruise Vessel Drifts Away

Wednesday, April 19, 2006
On April 16, a cruise ship known as The Spirit of Perth Amboy was untied and drifted about a mile from the Carteret dock into the Arthur Kill where it had become stuck in the mud near Staten Island. The incident occurred just hours before a noon Easter Sunday brunch cruise was scheduled to set sail, cruising past landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and South Street Seaport. The ship was not damaged, and the Sunday holiday cruise, with 150 people, mostly families along with the crew, went off as scheduled. (Source: New Brunswick Home News Tribune)
