Silver Shadow Collision March 16, 2012

Silverseas Cruises' Silver Shadow Collided with a cargo ship while sailing in Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay during heavy fog.
Cruise Ship Sinking
The cruise ship loaded with passengers was on a nine-night cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong when with little notice in heavy fog, Silver Shadow broadsided the container ship smashing the bridge of the other ship.

Photographs of the scene show about a quarter of the bridge smashed or missing and passengers say crew members aboard the cargo ship were laying on the deck of their vessel, perhaps injured while they were on the bridge during the impact.
