    Tragic... my condolences goes out to all those that in some way are affected.

    I see they have the Norwegian flag up on half mast as well.

    Being the "virgin-run" I hope the commission which is appointed to find what went wrong, really does find the problem and a good way to ensure that it will never happen again.

                That looks like a nasty fire. I wonder will they be able to save the ship?

                  Ships in the news this morning, 12 October 2010:-

                  Passenger believed to have fallen overboard from the Balmoral in the English Channel

                    On the passenger overboard story, I have heard from a member (of my forum) who had a relative aboard the Balmoral and it appears an elderly couple retired to bed at 23.00 and the wife awoke at 0500 hrs to find her husband missing, she searched the cafeteria as the gentleman was partial to an early morning coffee but he was nowhere to be seen so the alarm was raised and a search of the ship commenced but to no avail.

                    I cannot imagine what it would be like to go overboard and seeing the ship disappear. Not a pleasent thought.

                    My thoughts are with the family of the bereaved

                        Another news item today – the Royal navy submarine HMS Astute runs aground off the Isle of Skye in Scotland, possibly during sea trials. No injuries or serious damage.

                          Havfrakt grounded in Gisundet : http://www.nordlys.no/nyheter/article5358113.ece

                          Not the first, and defiantly not the last :/

                          Comment


                            Here is the picture of Havfrakt that accompanied the article in Nordlys.no:


                            The text under the picture states; "Here is the Supply vessel "Nordkinn" assisting in pulling "Havfrakt" off Olaholmen in Gisund".

                            Facts: The "Nordkinn" is not a supply vessel but a coastal Cargo Ship on her regular run along the Norwegian coast. She is merely passing by, not even slowing down to watch. I can see that, all the way from Singapore.

                            That just goes to show how little facts there are in what you read in newspapers, or what is presented on TV and Radio for that matter, especially when it comes to things nautical.

                            There must be many old pensioned seafarers within Nordlys.no's area who could have advised Mr. Rune S. Alexandersen that what he writes is incorrect. I'm sure they would be glad to help, if they were asked that is. They are only an e-mail away.

                            How they managed to get there is another question, which I'm sure will be asked.

                                Three people hospitalised after cruise ship collides with cargo vessel in Asia

                                Three people have been hospitalised when an Italian cruise ship collided with a cargo vessel at the mouth of the Yangtze River early this morning.

                                The crash caused a large gash along the side of the boat and number of other passangers suffered minor injuries on Costa Classica.

                                The ship reached its berth in Shanghai safely, but a cruise to Japan, Korea and Hong Kong due to begin today has been cancelled.
