boat slamming on sailboats

A small cruise ship with hundreds of students on board hit moored boats in Boston Harbor Thursday morning.

As they set off for the cruise, the eighth-grade class from Day Middle School in Newton quickly realized there was a big problem.

“I thought we were turning around and then we started getting close to all these really small boats and I realized something is definitely wrong,” said student Dani Kingsley.






Odyssey Boston said in a statement the issue with the ship has been identified and will be fixed.

"Our marine crew have identified the cause of the malfunction and are making the necessary repair to ready the ship for its return to service. We expect to be sailing again shortly. While these types of incidents are rare, we are fully prepared and equipped to handle them. As a company, we take the safety of our guests and crew very seriously, and operate our vessels to the highest marine safety standards. The company has an exemplary record, and has served millions of guests in over 30 years cruising Boston Harbor. "
