Holland America’s 1,916-passenger Westerdam sustained damage after striking a large piece of ice Wednesday while maneuvering through Alaska’s Yakutat Bay, south of Kluane National Park.
“The hull was not breached and the ship continued on its published itinerary as planned,” Holland America said in a statement.
The ship was “maneuvering through ice during high winds,” the cruise line said, resulting in a “mild indentation in the hull.” The damage was about 15 feet below the waterline, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
No one was injured, and no pollution occurred as a result of the accident.
A Coast Guard official met the Westerdam when it arrived at port in Sitka, Alaska, and launched an investigation, which is ongoing, said spokesperson Lt. junior grade James Dooley.
The 936-foot ship left Seattle on a seven-day journey on May 7.
