Default New Chinese cruise ship hits bridge - loses funnel

Ancient Chinese secret - don't cruise on ships built in China?
New cruise ship crashes into bridge

The captain of a brand new luxury cruise ship crashed the $45 million vessel into a bridge over a river in China after failing to account for the high tide.

The Pearl No 7 line in Wenzhou, Zhejiang, eastern China, was also sitting higher in the water because it had no passengers or cargo when it smashed into the bridge on the Oujiang River.

The 160m-long and 30m-wide ship lost a funnel in the collision and was forced to return to the shipyard for repairs.
