The 750-foot cruise ship Viking Star traversed the Cape Cod Canal on Wednesday night becoming one of the largest ships ever to make the transit.
Unfortunately the cruise ship hit a minor snag when it actually scrapped the bottom of a railroad bridge with its tower.
Earlier this week the Viking Star docked at Cruiseport Boston, marking the first ever call of a Viking Ocean Cruises ship in the United States. The ship began its voyage in Montreal before traveling the St. Lawrence River to Quebec City and Saguenay, on to Prince Edward Island and Halifax and, following the stop in Boston, is now headed to New York City for its port call later this week.
Here’s the a video of the ship hitting the bridge:
