Bahamas cruise ship disabled after striking object

Passengers aboard a Halloween cruise to the Bahamas got more excitement than expected after their ship hit an unknown object as it headed back to Florida.

The Bahamas Celebration returned to Grand Bahama Island after the accident late Friday. The Celebration Cruise Line company said in a statement that passengers were evacuated from the ship and placed in several resorts pending their return to Florida. There were no reported injuries.

The ship, which makes a one-night cruise from Palm Beach to Freeport every other day, was supposed to have arrived in Palm Beach early Saturday.

Crews were working to assess damage to the ship. The company canceled cruises for at least the first two weeks of November.
