Scrape of the Hull Sidelines Pacific Princess

Two breaches below the waterline in Pacific Princess' hull have caused Princess to cancel the balance of the ship's current 12-day Med cruise and the ship's next sailing on Sunday.

As Pacific Princess was arriving Nice this morning about 6:30am in normal wind and sea conditions, there was an unexpected change in wind which caused the ship to scrape a breakwater wall causing damage to the port side of the hull under the waterline.

The complete story appeared in the October 14 edition of Cruise News Daily.
