I missed Norwegian in the title, and just assumed it was our Navy crashing into/getting hit by other ships again.

Thankful there were only minor injuries.

I think their Navy and Coast Guard together have something like 70 ships. Most of them don’t go on long trips into unfamiliar waters. When you have almost nothing, go almost nowhere, and do almost nothing, it’s easy to have a good safety record.

USS West Virginia. Hit by two bombs, seven torpedos and sunk. Returned to service, 1944.

That Norwegian frigate is right side up in 30 feet of water. Patch it, pump it, float it, fix it. Right? Or not, whatever...

Different times, tech, and materials. Our nuke carriers are "one-shot" deals because of the cost to replenish the reactors.
