Yes Mr and Mrs `Outraged` or `Incredulous` of Tunbridge Wells always like to get their moment of annoying glory in don`t they.......and the male comment of `that ships not going anywhere` simply proves it.....

CLIA Statement:

CLIA welcome the statements by the Mayor of Venice demanding an urgent solution that would allow cruise vessels to enter Venice cruise terminal via an alternative route to the Giudecca Canal. CLIA recognise his views are supported by many locally in the region, and in national government.

The member lines of CLIA have been actively engaged in discussion about using the Vittoria Emmanuelle Canal as a solution for a considerable time, and have been cooperative in simulations and studies that resulted in the Comitatone recommendation.

CLIA urges all parties in Venice to reach a conclusion to start the preparation work to dredge the Vittoria Emmanuelle Canal to begin to reroute larger ships.

Adam Goldstein, chairman of Cruise Lines International Association, said: “The cruise industry has worked diligently with the Mayor of Venice, the Veneto Region, the Port Authority and many others, to find viable solutions to allow larger cruise ships to access the Marittima berths without transiting the Giudecca Canal.

“We are in agreement with the solution developed by Comitatone in 2018 to utilise the Vittorio Emanuele Canal as the best and most prudent means to move larger cruise ships away from the Giudecca. CLIA welcome and will support the urgent implementation of this solution.”

Uniworld confirmed four guests suffering minor injuries were escorted to hospital. No members of the crew were hurt.

“The accident occurred after most guests of the 130-passenger 'River Countess' had disembarked and were transferring for flights home,” said the line, adding its technical and nautical crisis team was en route to inspect the ship. “Guests slated to arrive today (Sunday) have been informed and are under the care of Uniworld, who is providing hotel accommodation.”
