Police Arrest Star Princess Passenger
A 51-year old male passenger traveling onboard Princess Cruises' Star Princess was arrested this week in Skagway after accusations were made that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy in the ship's sauna.

The youth, who was traveling on the Seattle-based Alaska cruise with his grandmother, reportedly alerted ship authorities to the assault and the man, who resides in Pacific, Washington, was arrested when Star Princess arrived in Skagway. Authorities transported him to Juneau, where he was arraigned on charges of first degree sexual assault and first degree sexual abuse of a minor. He is being held in a Juneau correctional center on $20,000 bail.

A Princess spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
