Has anyone heard of a cruise ship going aground in Alaska?

Clipper Odessey ran aground in the Aleutian Islands about 800 miles from Anchorge.
Spilled 5000 gallons of fuel and a small amount of waste water. Hit a rock going 5 knots. Passengers and non essential crew were taken off safely, ship was refloated with the tide . The ship has some serious damage.
Currents dispersed the spills before any cleanup could be done.
This is nowhere near usual shipping lanes for major cruise lines.
