Default The NCL Dream has struck a barge

There is debris in the water and the Infinity cannot leave and the Marco Polo cannot get into port

Since the Dream is sailing around the tip of South America this winter. I believe it's scheduled to be in Montevideo today, after departing Buenos Aires yesterday on a west bound itinerary. I also believe that's where the Infinity should be today. I'm not sure where the Marco Polo was scheduled to be today. It is also sailing in South America this winter.

Default Dream hits barge

The Dream was in Montevidio. So was Infinity. Marco Polo going in ahead of schedule due to bad weather in Punta del Este. Assessing damage to Dream. All other ships standing by.

Found this short article online:

"December 11, 2007 08:46am
A LUXURY cruise ship and a barge collided in Uruguay's main port today, sending several cars and containers off the barge and shutting the port down.
The Norwegian Dream cruise ship, owned by Miami-based NCL Corp, was leaving Montevideo when it collided with a barge being pulled by a tug, the navy said.

Navy divers were searching for the cars that fell of the barge.

"The collision caused five containers and several cars to fall in the water (and) the cruise ship received damages above the water line which do not appear serious," said Alejandro Anon, head of naval public relations.

According to Norwegian Cruise Line's website, the Norwegian Dream left Buenos Aires on Sunday and after Montevideo was planning to travel to southern Argentina and Chile."

How exactly would one explain to their insurance company that their car was hit by a cruise ship?

Default sister is on board right now

I heard from my sister, she says they are still sitting outside Montivideo waiting for the channel to be cleared. The next 2 ports are cancelled and "sail the horn" has been taken off the agenda.

Their new tentative schedule has them at Montivdeo until 4pm tomorrow, at sail Thursday and Friday, back on schedule Saturday.

NCL has given $150 ship board credit per passenger and served free alcohol for an hour last night.
If she writes back with anything new, I will post it on the board.

Certainly a trip to remember.

Seriously though - Hopefully no loss of life on the barge....
