JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A dinner cruise ship with 150
passengers and crew onboard has been freed after running aground in the Intercoastal Waterway en route to Daytona Beach.

The U.S. Coast Guard says the 85-foot Starlite Princess got stuck near Ormond Beach on Friday.

Operators were able to free the vessel by about 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The ship then continued on to its homeport at Caribbean Jacks in
Daytona Beach.

Coast Guard rescuers and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission
officials responded to the scene.

No injuries or pollution have been reported.

The cause remains under investigation.
