In fact, the ship accident occurred on the Danube River between the ports of Izmail and Tulcea.

The cargo vessel which was proceeding upstream en route to Galati, severely damaged the cruise ship with 165 passengers on board, which was sailing downstream to Tulcea at the time of the collision.

Two passengers were slightly injured, whereas the cruise ship has a seemingly seriously damaged starboard midship.

The cruise ship berthed at Tulcea and the cargo vessel was brought to anchor upstream from the collision site.

The cargo vessel has not been identified by any local sources, yet according to track devices it appears to be the general cargo ship BLUE STAR I. No further information about damages have been made clear.
