Cruise West's Spirit of Alaska scraped the ocean floor near Tracy Arm, a fjord near Juneau, early Wednesday morning.
The U.S. Coast Guard escorted the ship to Juneau to assess damage.
The one-week cruise began on June 3. Passengers were scheduled to be transferred to the Spirit of Endeavor, another Cruise West ship currently in Alaska.
