MAYPORT, Fla. – The Coast Guard is working with the owners of the Victory Casino Cruise ship to address safety deficiencies that led to the gambling vessel being docked.

As the result of a tip last Thursday, the Coast Guard did an unannounced inspection and found several safety issues on the vessel.

There's no word on how long it will take to correct those issues, or when the Victory Casino will be able to resume its cruises.

The Coast Guard has not said what specific problems were found.
