Damage to the luxury liner Queen Elizabeth 2 is more extensive than first thought and will force the cruise ship to remain in dry dock for more than a month, officials said Friday. "The damage extends into the keel of the vessel," said a spokesman for General Ship Corp. in Boston, where the QE2 is docked.

A high tide and six tugboats helped free a 600-foot luxury liner and more than 900 passengers Sunday night from a sandy shoal near Nantucket Island where they had been stuck for nearly 24 hours. The liner was moved to deeper water to be inspected for damage, Coast Guard Petty Officer Zach Zubricki said. The Royal Majesty got stuck 10 miles east of Nantucket late Saturday while returning from Bermuda to Boston with 959 passengers and a crew of more than 500.

The captain of the Queen Elizabeth 2 said Thursday that he could not believe the luxury liner had hit ground when it suddenly started shaking during a nighttime trip from Martha's Vineyard last week. In his first public statement, Capt. Robin A. Woodall told investigators he was initially dumbfounded because ocean charts showed there should have been plenty of clearance for the ship.

The luxury liner Queen Elizabeth 2 briefly ran aground off the Massachusetts coast Friday night and was leaking fuel, an official said. The ship refloated itself and was anchored, said Coast Guard Lt. Michael Sabellico. He said 2,800 people were aboard but there were no plans to evacuate them. Coast Guard cutters and aircraft were at the scene.

A 617-foot cruise ship ran aground two miles off Cape Cod in dense fog, forcing the evacuation of about 1,100 passengers and crew, the Coast Guard said. The Bermuda Star, bound for Nova Scotia from New York City, ran aground in a rocky area as the ship approached the beginning of the peninsula, a Coast Guard spokesman said. None of the 687 passengers or 380 crew members aboard were hurt. The ship was pulled free by tugboats nearly 13 hours after the accident.

Passengers from the Queen Elizabeth 2 took buses, trains and a ferry home Saturday as investigators tried to learn what caused the luxury liner to run aground just off the southeastern Massachusetts coast. The ship got stuck on an underwater ledge about 10 miles from Buzzards Bay late Friday as it returned to New York City from a five-day cruise to Nova Scotia. None of the 2,800 crew members or passengers was hurt.

The Queen Elizabeth 2 limped into Boston Harbor on Monday on its way to a dry dock as U.S. officials went in search of the underwater obstacle that the luxury ocean liner rammed into off Cape Cod. Limited to a mere 5 knots, a fraction of its 30-knot top speed, the ship headed for a city-owned dry dock recently refurbished to repair a Navy supply ship.
