Cruise ship on the rocks

ANorwegian cruise ship carrying 300 passengers, including 119 Americans, "ran aground near Deception Island in Antarctica on Tuesday."

Maybe they should have watched where they were going instead of looking for the dancing penguins.

No one was hurt in the incident, although the ship's hull was damaged and the passengers had to be transferred to a sister ship, the M/S Nordnorge, making the transfer in small boats usually used for sightseeing. The cruise passengers should be have arrived safely in Ushuaia, Argentina by the time this posts.
