Cruise ship impales finback whale in Atlantic

A cruise ship has arrived in the Atlantic Canada port of Saint John, New Brunswick, with a whale impaled on its bow.

Royal Caribbean's liner Jewel of the Seas was cruising the Gulf of St. Lawrence over the weekend, probably striking the 60-foot-long finback whale somewhere between Quebec City and the Bay of Fundy, officials said Monday.

It was not known if the whale was alive when it was struck. The coast guard towed the dead whale out to sea on Sunday.
