The new casino cruise ship in Galveston had to cancel a cruise on Sunday after hitting a hidden marker in the water.
Officials said the incident happened around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday. About 100 passengers were on board the Jacks or Better (JOB) Casino day cruise.
The operator said nobody was injured and the ship was able to safely dock in the Galveston Yacht Basin.
The damages to the ship were minor.
"It suffered some minor cosmetic damage as it slid across the marker," wrote Rocky Herrin, the general manager of the ship.
This is the first accident for the casino cruise ship. It opened for the public just last month.
The owners are working with the Coast Guard to make the hazard more visible. The ship will be out-of-service for repairs until further notice.
The captain of Jacks or Better Casino released the following statement:
"First let me apologize for the delay in making a statement concerning what happened aboard Jacks or Better Saturday evening. As there is an ongoing investigation I found it prudent to delay comment in detail but think it necessary to say something now specifically to the passengers, staff and crew that were onboard when the accident occurred.
