Not mentioned in most media outlets. Viking Cruises new cruise ship the Viking Star made her premier visit to the United States. As part of her repositioning cruise she visited New England and Canada. Part of the cruise included the transit of the Cape Cod Canal.
While transiting the canal, the mast atop the funnel of the Viking Star scraped the underside of a railroad bridge. Although there was contact made, supposedly both the ship and the railroad bridge escaped with little visible damage.
Check out this video of the actual incident with the Viking Star and the Cape Cod Canal Bridge.
