Sistership: Silver Whisper

Vietnam March 16-2012 The Silver Shadow collided in deep fog with a container ship off Vietnam, punching a hole in the container ship. No one was hurt everyone was certainly shaken up about the incident. The Silver Shadow was about five miles from the coast of Vietnam. After the impact passengers gathered a few of their possessions and headed to the muster stations. But after about 10 minutes, the captain announced that there was no imminent danger, he said.The ship went on to anchor in Ha Long Bay, as had been planned. The next day, the Silver Shadow went to a nearby port.  Here it was possible to investigate the damage. "We hit full force into the side of this container ship," a passenger says.  Silversea describes the incident as "minor". However passengers said " it was a major collision".However by passengers was said " it was a major collision".
