Luxury cruise ship damaged by giant wave



Luxury cruise line Silversea has been forced to cancel a cruise onboard the Silver Explorer after the ship was damaged by a giant wave in rough weather while on an 18-night voyage in South America.


Media reports claimed four crew suffered minor injuries when a wave struck in the waters between Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica.


The cruise line confirmed all 133 passengers and 113 crew were safe, but the damage to the ship was severe enough for Silversea to cut short the cruise and to cancel its next sailing on January 21.


The ship has returned to Ushuaia in Argentina, where it departed in early January. It is expected to resume service with a 10-night cruise departing on January 31.
