Noble damages reef
AFTER the grounding of MS Caledonian Sky earlier this month, small cruise ship operator Noble Caledonia has launched an investigation into the incident where the ship hit a reef off Kri Island in Indonesia.
MS Caledonian Sky was refloated on the next high tide and was inspected by divers.
Authorities were immediately notified and the event has drawn media attention for the impact the ship caused to tropical corals.
In a statement Noble Caledonia said it regretted any damage caused to the reef.
APT Travel Group, which has a close relationship with Noble, welcomed the investigation and said the ship was not being operated by it at the time.
