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."

Hopefully less damage than this...One of my friends was the CD on the Dream when the 1999 incident occured. She said it was very bad ordeal for passenger and crew alike.
Man oh man. Another barge, eh?Per the following link, a containership in 1999.
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.

Certainly a trip to remember.
Hopefully less damage than this...The Dream had another fender- er, bow -bender?
"All I did was look down to change the radio station and this guy came out of nowhere!!" I bet this Captain's insurance rates will be through the roof...
Seriously though - Hopefully no loss of life on the barge....
