Seems she ran aground, this is on the Events at Sea website ...

WJCL News reports the US Coast Guard is reporting that evacuation is now complete of the passengers aboard the casino cruise liner that ran aground around 12 a.m. Wednesday morning. Coast Guard officials said that 113 people had been evacuated by boat and four had to be flown from scene due to inability to use the ladder. The evacuees of the ship were transported to a Coast Guard station on Tybee Island – 45 minutes away from the scene of the scene of the cruise ship. Officials are reporting no injuries or medical evacuations. A Coast Guard spokesman said that the boat ran into a sand bar around midnight stranding passengers and crew until over 12 hours later. Despite the impact, officials said the boat is not leaking fuel and transport of the cruise-liner will continue at 1 a.m. during the next high tide. The cruise – a two hour shakedown or dry-run for the new casino cruise service – was set to come back to port at 12 a.m. according to the husband of a person working in the food and beverage crew who did not wish to be named. But the boat ran aground between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. they said.
