Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines' "Monarch of the Seas," which ran aground off St. Maarten in December and was dry-docked until March 8, returned to St. Thomas on Monday.
Damages to the cruise ship were reported to be between $9 million and $15 million, according to Rick Steck, public relations manager for Royal Caribbean, as reported by the Daily News.
