Whale meets Cruise Ship with Unfortunate end Greg Dragonetti August 7, 2010 All Cruise Lines 1 Comment Hopefully the Sea Sheppard’s won’t get news of this, although maybe it’ll make the show interesting to watch. The Sapphire Princess collided with the over 40-ft long humpback while cruising in Alaska. She was cruising from Ketchikan to Juneau and upon docking in Juneau, the whale was discovered. Something no other site are reporting, this is not the first time it has happened to this ship. Just last year she ran into fin whale. Photo from MSNBC One Response Nicholas Crummy January 13, 2011 The whale which the Sapphire Princess hit was already dead, it had been sliced previously by a propeller which hit its fin, after that it was attacked by Orcas who went after her tongue, the ship just picked it up from the surface in the dead of night.
