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.

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.
