Try this one for the story. Cruise ships are being banned from the Grand Canal at Venice.

I understand Venetians concern about tourism and that ship looks scary close. Nevertheless, I am unsure of the connection between the accident cited in the article and cruise ships.

There was no connection between the incident and cruise ships. The anti-cruise ship faction in Venice is just using the death to further their cause.
