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.
