The Argentine navy says a cruise ship carrying 122 people is adrift and taking on water in Antarctica but is in no danger of sinking. There are 89 passengers and 33 crew members aboard the Ushuaia.

Adm. Daniel Alberto Martin sent out an alarm Thursday after the ship suffered a crack and started leaking fuel and taking on water.

The navy says help is on the way from another passenger ship in the area.
