Silversea confirms collision of luxury cruise ship

Silversea Cruises has launched an investigation after one of its luxury vessels collided with a cargo ship off the coast of Vietnam.

The company confirmed in a statement that the 382-passenger Silver Shadow collided with a local container ship on Friday morning as it was approaching Ha Long Bay in Vietnam.

It dismissed the collision as a "minor incident" but said it was carrying out a full investigation.

No passengers were injured and the ship, which suffered only "minor dents", according to Silversea, continued to Ha Long Bay and then on to Hong Kong, as per the itinerary.
