Holland America's Westerdam hits ice in Alaska

I just saw the Westerdam in Ft Lauderdale last month. Looks to be tougher than the Titanic to me.

Quote:
Holland America’s 1,916-passenger Westerdam sustained damage after striking a large piece of ice Wednesday while maneuvering through Alaska’s Yakutat Bay, south of Kluane National Park.

“The hull was not breached and the ship continued on its published itinerary as planned,” Holland America said in a statement.
