(2:35 p.m. EDT) -- Two cruise itineraries were affected after Silversea's Silver Explorer ran into a fishing net in the Bering Sea mid-cruise, damaging its propeller.
The ship's current 11-night itinerary has been shortened by five days, now stopping on June 26 in Adak Island, Alaska, and its next voyage -- a July 1 departure from Seward, Alaska -- has been cancelled.
Passengers currently on the shortened voyage will receive a full refund of their cruise fares; reimbursement of travel costs to and from the ship; $100 per person, per day, for up to three travel days back home and any repatriation costs to get home.
Cruisers booked on the cancelled Silver Explorer voyage have been offered a full refund of their cruise fares (including Silversea air and land programs), reimbursement of travel costs to and from the ship and a 25 percent future cruise credit.
