With a spotlight on cruise passenger safety, a luxury cruise liner owned by Silversea Cruises reportedly collided with a local cargo ship while navigating in dense fog off the coast of Vietnam on March 16th, causing minor damage to the cruise ship and, from the looks of it, rather extensive damage to the bridge of the cargo ship.
Details of the collision are still a bit, er, foggy, yet Silversea cruises acknowledged the collision in a statement obtained by various media outlets, saying that their Silver Shadow cruise ship “was involved in a minor incident on March 16, 2012, at around 4:20 GMT as it was approaching the pilot station in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. There was contact between Silver Shadow and a local commercial vessel. Silver Shadow incurred limited minor dents and guests’ safety was never compromised. The ship was fully operational and continued on its course to Ha Long Bay, where all shore tours operated normally.”
In his new book "Leadership Is Language, The Hidden Power of What You Say and What You Don't", former submarine commander Captain L David Marquet (USN Ret) dives deep into one of the most thoroughly investigated marine disasters, the sinking of the El Faro, and surfaces with new ideas on leadership and language.
