Sea Diamond to Resurface

Longtime readers will remember the sinking of Louis Cruises' Sea Diamond at Santorini on April 5, 2007.

The 21,484-ton ship had hit a reef the day before and took on water. After evacuation, the ship was beginning to be towed when it sank in 300 feet of water.

The Greek government last week ordered the salvage of the ship in compliance with Greek law.

The complete story appeared in the October 23 edition of Cruise News Daily.
