Origionally Lindblad Explorer of 1969, she is said to be the first cruise ship designed and built for Arctic itineraries. And of course, we all know she sank in the frigid arctic waters on November 23, 2007 after striking (or running over) an iceberg. If im not mistaken, this is the first passenger ship to sink due to striking ice since the Titanic in 1912. Please correct me if im wrong. She was a great ship.

Thanks,
Kolby Hurt

Plus, it was not north of Canada, but quite far to the south.

Yet another reason why Canada should be taking care of the Arctic, if you ignore the fact the she was under the control of a Toronto outfit.

The master and all senior officers were European, just like as with the most recent Arctic grounding.
CLIPPER that!
