Princess cruise ship impales fin whale, docks at Vancouver port

A fin whale has been impaled and killed on a Princess cruise ship that docked in the Port of Vancouver Saturday morning.

The whale, about 20 metres long, was wrapped around the bow of the ship Saturday in full view of tourists at Canada Place, many snapping pictures of the disturbing sight.

A worker from the cruise ship, who didn’t want to be named, said he was not sure when the whale had been hit. The boat — the Sapphire Princess — had come in from Alaska on the Inside Passage, he said.
