Kate Winslet Wept

I’ve never had the desire to take a cruise, mostly because I suspected I would be seasick, bloated from all the food, and locked in the tiny cabins.

That said, I never thought striking an iceberg would be an issue, but here we are.

A Norwegian Cruise Line ship on the way to an Alaskan glacier hit an iceberg over the weekend and is being turned around due to damage.

The ship, the Norwegian Sun, smacked into the minor iceberg, also known as a growler, on Saturday and was rerouted to Juneau for inspection.

Bunch of babies. Finish the cruise and hope the ship stays afloat.

“On June 25, 2022 while transiting to Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, Norwegian Sun was engulfed by dense fog, limiting visibility and resulting in the ship making contact with a growler,” a Norwegian Cruise spokesperson told Cruise Hive.

“The ship remains fully operational and is currently on its way to Juneau, Alaska for assessment,” the spokesperson said Sunday.

“Fully operational.” Yeah, they said that about the Death Star before it was destroyed.

    1. I’ve watched a show about making one. That one cost a cool 1 billion dollars. That was several years ago, so no telling what it’ll cost now.

  1. The 1st cruise I went on back in 2011. We were going to the Sawyer Glacier near Juneau when we came to a complete stop. I looked down at the water & saw a chunk of ice that looked like it was about 10 feet across gently bumping along the side of the boat. We stayed there until it was past us, then we got out of there. It was actually pretty cool to be sitting in the buffet area & watch us turning around without moving an inch forward or backward.

  2. I wonder how many went to see the glaciers”Before they disappeared!”
    You know Gaia hates global warmmongers, look at how Al Gore always scares up a blizzard.

  3. I’m with you on cruises. I’ve seen the following documentaries: Godzilla, Jaws, and The Poseidon Adventure, and the only time I want water under me is when I’m birthing a Democrat.
