My God, I can't believe another accident. Praying all involved are safe and unhurt.

Thanks Snapper for alerting us to the story. Also thanks Joanie for bring Andrew Lock face book information up front. Though the damage looks bad to the Silversea Silver Shadow it really is mainly scraping damage with some denting, but the damage to the container ship was major. I am surprised because Silversea's ships are somewhat small, but it looks like the container ship must have been smaller.

Looks like the cargo ship got the worse end of the deal. I'm sure we'll hear more about this.

Thanks, Joanie, for pulling this together for us. Good work!

That's what I couldn't figure out With all the safety gadgets these ships have, how could this have happened

Must be a slow time for the news business.

If there were enough "hard" news, this wouldn't even be a story.

I think because it comes hard on the heels of Allegra, Concordia, and the Ruby and Crown Noro issues, it is seen as a pattern of cruise ship safety issues.

Unless you were joking.

I agree........ because of other cruise ship events, this becomes of more interest to news stations. IMO

Default Tragedy trending

IMO, this is starting to look like a trend, and Concordia was sufficiently horrific for the media to smell blood.

I hope there were no significant injuries and will plan to cruise twice this year since we are keeping the faith.

Unhappy I do not want to start more fear by posting another thread, but....

Deleted after posting due to reading the date of the original news. Time for bed when I miss it by a year

I sure hope everyone is okay, but I dunno, I don't see that as bad damage.

This is bad damage
