JUNEAU — The Coast Guard is investigating an allision between the 935-foot cruise ship Westerdam and ice in the vicinity of Yakutat Bay.

The Westerdam was reportedly maneuvering through ice Tuesday evening near Hubbard Glacier when it sustained damage about 15 feet below the waterline.

The hull was reportedly not breached and no injuries or pollution were reported.
