Spirit of Glacier Bay ran aground this summer in Alaska, The same ship, formerly called the Spirit of Nantucket, began taking on water in November 2007 on an Intracoastal Waterway cruise near Virginia Beach, Va, after it hit a submerged object. The captain ran it aground to prevent it from sinking. This June, another Cruise West ship, the Spirit of Alaska, touched bottom on a Southeast Alaska cruise, damaging its rudder and cutting short a cruise. And in May, the company's Spirit of Columbia had power and propeller problems and was diverted to Juneau. There were no injuries in either incident. Doesn't want to make me rush to make a booking...!
