    Cruise line 1, Venezuelan navy 0

    A cruise ship in international waters was attacked by a Ven. naval ship.

    Damaged bow.

    The RCGS Resoloute was cruising in international waters when she encountered a Ven. naval ship. The naval vessel insisted the cruise ship go to Venezuela to be boarded. While the captain of Resolute was on the phone to his company trying to get instructions, the navy ship fired on her. Still not getting the answer they wanted, the navy captain decided to ram the cruise ship.
    Unknown to the Venezuelan captain, the cruise ship had two things in her favor. A bulbous bow and an ice certification! Basically, an ice breaker!:D
    The naval ship damned the bow causing just minor damage but her bow hit the Resolutes bulbous bow, and holed the ship. :D
    The navy vessel sank while the Resolute continued in to port.
    Of course, El Presidente is putting the best spin on the incident claiming the cruise ship was engaged in piracy and that full investigation to prove that the captain, owners of the cruise ship were up to nefarious purposes. :cool:
    We all know how that will go.:rolleyes:

    Good thing that Venezuelan boat did not run into any real pirates. They would have been captured and held for ransom.

    If that cruise ship was as Dirty as the Venezuelan ship claimed, why didnt they fire a ship to ship missile?

    The sailors of the military boat will be dead on arrival back home. Just did a little research and that was a $150,000,000 boat and it was just a few years old.
