    Cruise ship runs aground, evacuated off Alaska

    Story Highlights
    Empress of the North carrying 281 people
    Ship hit rock southwest of Juneau
    No reports of injuries



    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- A cruise ship ran aground off the Alaska coast early Monday, and more than 200 passengers were being transferred to life boats and other vessels, Coast Guard officials said.

    There were no immediate reports of injuries.

    The 299-foot Empress of the North, carrying 281 people, was listing by about 6 degrees after hitting Hanus Rock at the southern end of the Icy Strait southwest of Juneau, said Petty Officer Christopher D. McLaughlin at the Coast Guard base in Kodiak.

    A Coast Guard fixed-wing aircraft and helicopter were dispatched after an emergency radio message was received at 12:35 a.m. from the ship, operated by Majestic America Line of Seattle, McLaughlin said.

    McLaughlin said the reason for the grounding was unclear, but he said the ship was not believed to be taking on water.

    The Empress of the North is operated by Majestic America Line of Seattle. The ship has 112 staterooms, a three-story paddlewheel and galleries featuring Native American masks and Russian artwork, including Faberge eggs, according to its Web site.

    Jeez who was steering the ship? This is precisely why I'll never set foot on a cruise ship.

    Titanic anyone?

    Yeah it does kinda look like a riverboat now that you mention it. T/G they weren't hauling oil.
